Juicing Lunch

yummy juice

A mix of fruits & veggies ready to go into the juicer

Today we are continuing with juicing our lunch. I have been doing this for about 10 weeks. So far I have been enjoying this new habit. I have not noticed this improve my Rheumatoid Arthritis, but I have not found it giving me any issues either.  The first benefit I have found with replacing lunch with around 16 to 19 ounces of juice instead has been weight loss. Since I started juicing I have lost 12 pounds. I have done nothing different and have not changed any medication recently. I have gone up a pill of the Methotrexate just recently and I think the one before that was around three months ago. So I believe the weight loss is from the juicing.

The second thing I  have noticed after juicing for a couple months, I really miss it if I skip it. I have a craving for it like I have for chocolate. I also noticed the days I can not do fresh juice and even when I do a Naked Juice from the store, I wake up hungry in the middle of the night.  I still had a meal for lunch some of those days and dinner, but still woke up in the middle of the night hungry like I missed something.

Today we had a combo of celery, red apple, Asian pear, apricot, ginger, spinach, cabbage, broccoli, blueberries, cucumber, Roma tomato, garlic and a carrot. It was pretty yummy!

Do you have a healthy habit you are starting this year?

Biotinidase Deficiency Not RA

Diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis in Dec 2003 because of joint pain and fatigue. Found out on July 19, 2013 that I really was profoundly low on Vitamin B7 because of a rare disease called Biotinidase Deficiency. When I found out I was very weak, hardly could get out of bed, could not turn my head without getting light headed, dragging my feet when I tried to walk, struggled to breath daily for years and was having many many other issues. From the first 24 hours of taking Biotin my symptoms started to disappear and my body started getting stronger again.
