I recently attended the second PDX food swap hosted by Sustainable Food for Thought and Abby’s Table. It was a lovely evening spent quickly wheeling and dealing trades for my own 8 delicious bottles of almond milk. After scoping out the goods and signing up for the items you wish for, it was a fast process and nearly all items were traded away within moments of the start.
My take-home bounty included:
comfrey fennel salve
pickled sea vegetables
6-pack of Black Lab IPA
raw beet saurkraut
1 puff pastry
Raw vegetables with raw ranch dip
Amazing. If only I could do this every week, I’d be set and well fed.

Pure Simple Juice joins Market Q. We’ll have our very tasty juices and nut milks at the market starting June 11th. Come and visit but before then visit the market because it starts tomorrow–Saturday, May 7th!
You can now purchase your very own Pure Simple Juice Cleanse!
First cleanse will begin Sunday, May 22nd. This will include all of the beverages, broth, and herbal tea you need to get through 72 hours of a liquid fast. And I will be having a one-hour introductory session with myself, the dietitian pre-cleanse to learn about the basics of fast, benefits and answer questions.
So sign yourself up and your friends!
Inspiring story of people taking control of their health through guess what? Juice of course.
Round two, freshly pressed, ready-to-go, box and all this time. Pure Simple Juice’s, second round of juice testers is beginning the weekday cleanse tomorrow. As for the weekend group, they are still fasting, a bit hungry but consensus is juices are really tasty.
Some of you may be asking so why would you do such a thing to yourself? I certainly have my own reasons as the dietitian, founder and deliverer of the cleanse, for my answer you can check out the web site www.puresimplejuice.com. Instead I’ll share with you thoughts from those that I asked prior to the cleanse. These reasons included: Seeing what it’s like to go without eating, trying a fast because they’ve never done one before, athletic performance adjustments, personalizing the seasonal changes currently taking place, helping to relieve allergies both from the seasonal change as well as to gauge how their body reacts to certain foods after “clearing the palette” so to speak, longevity and lifestyle/eating habit changes for better health.
All great and very different reasons to participate in an activity that is designed to challenge your everyday routine, as well as allow you to reflect and understand more concretely, how your body uses the sustenance we require.
