On a recent trip to Florida for a Drum Circle Facilitation Workshop, I fell in love with Good Vibes Juice Co. Each morning I would wake up and head to the juice bar where I would pick out one or two raw organic juices and sit in the sunshine outside the shop, and soak up both nutrients and sun-rays.
One of my favorite juices is, “Shark Bite”, a combination of carrot, beet, pineapple and ginger, an earthy grounding blend. Another favorite was “Riptide”, a mix of coconut water, lime juice and blue majik (freshwater algae). One of the most potent shots I had was, “Ginger XL”, a powerful double dose of ginger and cayenne pepper. Strong enough to blow your head off!
Sadly after a few days, I had to leave the sunshine state and head back to the dreary midwest winter. I decided that juicing was going to be a part of my new life, along with drumming. I knew that the raw juices were good for my body, and that drumming was good for my soul. A perfect blend of health and happiness.
I brought back a couple of empty Good Vibes juice bottles and now I am making my own mixes. The first juice I made was a combination of turmeric, apple cider vinegar, orange juice and chia seeds. Although not the same as Good Vibes Juice Co., it was satisfying, and fulfilled my need to keep up with a healthy daily routine and reminding me of my mornings in the sun.
A little bit of juicing and a little bit of drumming, a perfect start to any day.
