Juice Feasting Postponed

I've decided to postpone my juice feasting on the advice of other raw foodists and raw mamas. As long as I am breastfeeding my child, it's best to wait until I stop so the baby is not exposed to any toxins. It's important that I don't deplete my body of nutrition so Santiago gets the best milk possible. I'm a little disappointed not to be starting right away but my baby is priority. I breastfed my first son for 18 months. It'll be at least that long before I do the juice feast. Oh well. It's not a competition and there is no rush. In the meantime, I continue to eat a raw diet.

Hey! Thanks for stopping by my blog! Yours is so cool, I love that picture. I am currently on day 64 of my juice feast and I know that you would no be deprived of any nutrition, it the most nutrient dense way of eating I have had so far, however there is detox and it is wiser to avoid that while breastfeeding. Personally I postponed trying to get prengant until I finish the juiciness, for the same reason.
It is true, there is no reason to rush! Your priorities rule! your baby is so beautiful!!!
