It’s been a while. Lots has happened since I last posted: Two bouts of conjunctivitis (kids), one bout of flu (me) and another round of shingles (again, me). It’s felt like a non-stop party of ill health chez-nous. Come on over!

Just kidding, course, but it’s made me realise that I need to take far better care of myself and my little brood.

So, as the title of this post suggests I’m attempting a juice fast. I’ve had quite a lot on my plate recently and found that I had a few bad reactions to certain foods, garlic being the main culprit. This, coupled with my recent spate of illness has made me realise that I need to give my immune system a bit more support.

1/3 cucumber

2 sticks of celery

1/2 apple

1/3 pineapple

It was refreshing and zingy and haven’t yet fantasised about eating cake, so maybe I’ll make it through this alive!
