Day 9 of 60: Honeydew


Honeydew melon juice this morning. Oh how good. After all water yesterday, this tasted divine. I am not sure if I am a bit allergic though. I was drinking it, and after a bit, it was like my tongue was numb. It was all very odd. I was fine when I finished it though, so it may have been a sudden weird happening that was a detox symptom.

FYI - if you are to juice a melon, don't muck it up with other fruits. Everything I have read says that melons are digested in a flash, so they tend to want to move everything else in your system along - unless they are behind complex things and get stuck and putrefy in your guts - not good.

Otherwise my day is shaping up well. I slept well last night, despite very odd dreams, and I have some crazy dreams usually. Now on juice and no solids, my dreams are more vivid and last long. The dream: Somehow my nephew (who turned 15 today) was over my house and took my car to go deliver something across state lines. He doesn't know how to drive, but we let him go anyway. Then his mother kept calling wondering when we would bring him home. We kept making excuses about the fun we were all having because we still had yet to hear from him. He never called. Then, after a day, we got worried (I know, a whole day) and we went looking for him. Turns out he got picked up by the cops a few miles away because he didn't know the rules of the road and ran a stop sign. He wasn't being kept in a jail, but in some sort of decrepit building and the cops were shady and I am not sure what was happening, but he was someplace in there and we had to break him out. Then the alarm work me up and I will never know WTF that was about.

Lunch (who am I kidding, I have yet to touch it and it is after 2:30pm), is a very green Cucumber, Parsley, Dill, Fennel, Celery juice. It is weird because there are floaty bits in it. Very odd indeed. First sip - very, um, no taste? I think maybe these missing taste buds are making things taste funny. It is all very fresh tasting, but light. I like it. I think this combo is a keeper. Having a cucumber celery base is good for green drinks. Not sure why so many floaty bits. Maybe the screen was clogged?

Let me know what you think about my blog if anyone out there is reading this. I would appreciate the feedback. Do you like the inclusion of photos and links? What should I do more of? What questions do you have that I can answer? Help! I need more to write about than feeling so self absorbed lately!

  1. I am reading, Lynette, it's Tara!! You are doing a freaking fantastic job.. writing seems so natural to you! I like that you've included pictures and I'm almost inclined to go buy a juicer because some of the stuff that you've been making sounds REALLY good! Are you taking vitamin supplements or drinking any kind of protein water? I just wonder if I tried to do something like this, how my body would react, because your body usually needs some type of protein. We can either discuss here or you can shoot me an email, but I am very intrigued! How much is your usual serving (one of those bottles in the picture?). How's Leo feel about this... has he tried any of the juices?

  2. I love your blog! I'm keeping up with this whole thing so keep posting because I'm now emotionally invested in your fast! =P

    I like the pictures! Can you take one of you juicing too?

  3. Hey Lynette it's Jess. I have been reading. I definitely like the pictures.

    It would be cool to know how much fruit / veggies go into the juicer to make how many ounces of a drink. Are you using sample recipes to base any of this on? I am also still wondering where you are getting the protein as well, I know that there is protein in some veggies, but are you getting enough?

    Keep up the good work! :)

  4. More than protein I was wondering where your getting your Amino Acids, They are absolutely essential and you can find the 12 essential ones in Hemp seed or Flax seed, the other 8 are not as big a concern within 60 days. I also don't know your knowledge on Biology, or Chemistry so check out this link http://www.biology.arizona.edu/biochemistry/problem_sets/aa/aa.html or Google some Scholarly papers on the subject. =D
