Three Weeks on Blood Orange Juice ♥

It has been my very great pleasure to have done three weeks on mono Blood Orange juice.
The Blood Orange season is about complete, and I have my last few Beautiful Blood Oranges.
I am just so glad that I had the priviledge of three weeks on this amazing fruit.
It has been a very special time ♥
I have felt wonderful; clear and clean in mind and body, have played and worked with Beautiful Blood Orange energy, felt flexible and free, and felt a loving connection with the Wonderful World around me.
I found this time priceless, the season was so short and I was able to gain so much from it. I also felt very much in-tune with the time of year just because of the seasonability of this special fruit ♥
I guess on average I was juicing 24–26 Oranges per day, although this varied a bit due to their varying size.
I am very thankful and this time will stay with me always.
Much Love and Peaches,

Day Sweet Sixteen Mono Blood Orange Juice ♥

I thought this photo of a Blood Orange looked like a map of the world!
I am on Day 16 of Mono Blood Orange juice.
I am pretty excited because I have never been on a Mono Blood Orange juice diet before. I mostly lived off Blood Oranges in March 1995, when I was in Malta, but I did have some other fruits a few times during the month.
The Bloods have been of superb quality; some big, some small, some with marbled skin, some with orange skin — but all delicious.
The season will not be on for much longer, so I am delighted that I have been able to make the most of the very seasonal Blood Oranges ♥
They have taken my Orange juice experience to a whole new level.
I am consuming about 1.5 litres of juice per day.
My energy is great, I am finding my morning workout easier and more fun to do.
I am sleeping very well.
My flexibility is improved.
Life is good ♥

So I am eternally grateful to the Australian Blood Orange trees, and also to the Australian Blood Orange farmers.

Thank you for reading ♥

♥ Day 8 Blood Orange Juice ♥

Day 8 on Mono Blood Orange juice.
I must say that I find Blood Oranges to be one of the most striking of all fruits.
They are sometimes beautifully gradiated with colour; starting from orangey-yellow, through red, to purple.
Here is one I juiced (in my mouth ) today.
I felt it was just so Beautiful ♥ that I had to capture its Tequila Sunrise colours on my camera.

Such a Beautiful Fruit with such a beautiful taste. I do think that fruit lovers are blessed with the most divine looking food ♥

I have been juicing between 16–20 Oranges each day, this feels like a good amount for me at the moment.
I have had good energy, and feel very satisfied with the quality and ripeness of the lovely Bloods.

Cappi, my son, and I went out with our trolley today to find some more of these Beauties. We combined food hunting with exersise, sunshine, and homeschooling as we did mental maths and spelling on our walk; so some great mulitasking and we got to bring home some delicious fruit.

I feel very blessed and happy today ♥

♥ 7 Days on Blood Orange Juice ♥

This is my seventh day on Blood Orange juice.
Blood Oranges are one of my favourites of all the fruits. There is something very special about their delicious, rich, Mulberry wine flavour, and they are not only beautiful to look at and a delight to eat, but they are full of goodness.
Bloods have up to twice the Vitamin C content of their more orangey cousins.
Their Australian season is short but deliciously sweet.
Blood Oranges can be a little hard to track down; supermarkets rarely stock them, it is usually fruit shops that are home to these litttle purple juice balls.

Blood Oranges make an excellent juice, just using a simple hand-juicer you can get so much juice out of them.

Bloods originated in Sicily, hundreds of years ago, and in 1995, I was fortunate to be in Malta in Sicilian Blood Orange season. Malta is a beautiful island and due too her proximity to Sicily there were bags of Sicilian Blood Oranges in every small grocery store.

I found out that the colour of the Blood Orange is caused by the colour pigment and antioxidant anthocyanin. Anthocyanins are also found in Mulberries and Raspberries, and that may be why, to me,  the Blood Orange has flavours of  Raspberries and Mulberries in it.

In contrast the colour pigment of the Cara Cara Navel Orange is not due to anthocyanin but to the antioxidant lycopene.

I usually eat mostly local fruit, but I make an exception for the Bloods, which come from the Southern part of Australia.
To get that really deep and tasty pigmentation, Bloods need to experience the cooler and drier nights. So whilst they will grow in Queensland, they will not develop the purply-red colour and taste.

So I give much thanks and gratitude to the trees and farmers of  Southern Australia for providing me with the truly delightful Blood Orange ♥ ♥ ♥

♥The End of The Juice Diet.♥

So, I broke the Orange juice diet today on four fresh ripe Dates spread out over about one hour - and they tasted delicious.
I am still doing some deep level elimination which is quite an experience in itself. And despite eliminating from my eyes, the whites of my eyes have never looked whiter. Also my skin is totally clear.
So I have at least two nice side-effects from all the elimination.
Later in the day I had about 50gms/1.76oz of Organic Watermelon.
I am trying to take the re-introduction of other fruit gently.
I also drank lots of water today, to help to flush my body out.

And I just wanted to say  Thank You again to everyone who has followed my blog and given me support whilst I was on my Juice Diet.♥
I an eternally grateful that I was able to carry it out in such a wonderful way ♥
I think I will still post here if I find out some amazing Orange facts, and I certainly will the next time that I go on an Orange juice diet.

So Many Thanks for all your wonderful support and great comments.
Wishing you Beautiful Days ♥
Love and Peaches,

♥ Day 84 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 84 ♥
Because I was going through some elimination: mucus from the nose and eyes, feeling very tired, and having a headache, I had no desire to take any food today, so I water fasted for 42 hours.
I was fortunate to be able to rest today, Cappi was wonderful and let me spend time relaxing, so I really appreciate his consideration.
So I will take Orange juice tomorrow morning, and depending on how I feel, either have another Orange juice day, or break the Orange juice diet.
This tiredness is very unusual to me and it does make me appreciate my normal high energy levels.
I do have faith in my body though, and I feel that it is really removing some deep stored toxins .

Have Beautiful Days ♥

♥ Day 83 Mono Orange Juice ♥

Day 83 ♥
Today, was interesting, I seemed to go into some deeper stage of elimination, I felt weak for the first time in ages, and I had some elimination in the corner of my eyes, and a little mucus from my nose.
So I will see how I feel tomorrow, and maybe it is time to finish the juice diet.
As an added incentive, the box of Fresh Barhi Dates arrived today, and they look very good, and are just a a few days off ripening.
My father and his friend are also flying out from England to spend time with us next week, and so it will not be best time in my life for taking  rest if I need to, as we will be travelling around the Sunshine Coast. It will be wonderful to spend time with him ♥
So I will water fast tomorrow to help things along their way, and then make a decision maybe the day after.

I have had the most wonderful experience on my juice diet, and before today, had no real feeling of when it may end.
I feel very blessed to have had the opportunity to undertake such a wonderful juice diet.
And I am so grateful to all The Organic Orange Trees, and The Organic Growers, The Organic Fruit Pickers, and The Organic Distributers that have combined in their sweet efforts to bring the Oranges to my door.

Morning - 16 Syrup Balls, juiced with a spoon
