About four months ago, Denis and I decided to challenge our diets and take it one step further. We decided to fast and only eat, or drink in this case, liquids once a month on the full moon.
We noticed that around the full moon it was hard to deal with everyone’s energy. At work, on the road, online, on TV, at the beach, everyone is more stressed than usual.
A liquid fast entails only consuming liquids such as soups, smoothies, juices, water, puddings; basically anything that doesn’t require chewing.
I am a huge fan of soups and smoothies… always been! And preparing only liquid foods was very easy for me. I also had great help from several books with not only great raw vegan soup recipes but smoothies and juices.
We start our liquid fast about three days before the full moon and so far it has helped us deal with the “Full Moon” energy around us. I have set reminders in my calendars to let me know when the full moon starts so that we can start our fast.
Here are some of the recipes that I make during the liquid fast:
Happy Full Moon 2010!
