View Full Version : Flax crackers with juice pulp... and how long do they last?
I'm on a juice fast for a few days, but I don't want to waste the pulp. I'm soaking some flax seeds, and I figure I'll just whip up some recipe with those and the pulp. Is there any reason I shouldn't do this???
Also, flax crackers don't really fit into a juice fast (they're not, uh, juice)... so how long do they last??? We make them all the time, but they've never actually been around for more than a day. We eat 'em quick! ;)
Thanks in advance. :)

You could seal them in a plastic bag, fridge 'em, and they'll last weeks in my experience.
Ideally, I'd fast intermittently with some high fiber intake days to really clean out the colon.
You mean, like fast one day, green smoothies the next?? I'm thinking of doing the juice fast for 3 days (today is day 2), and then doing green smoothie for another few days or a week. I just felt like I needed an extra push for cleansing, but I'm totally new to this, so I would looooove if you have any other input. I keep hearing about colonics and other "crazy" stuff for when you're juicing, but it seems as though my intestines are pushing the goods through okay. Is that totally different from the actions of the colon?
Man, I'm really jacking my own thread like crazy, huh? ;)
And, by the way, thanks for the cracker info. I'm actually going to get them started right now!!!:)

HI Sweet Eva- I was reading about a clinic that deals holistically with cancer patients, but I can't remember which one it was. I think it was European. But anyway they switched to a system of having people fast for a couple of days and then eat raw foods for a few days, and back and forth. I juice fasted for ten days last summer and did several sessions of colonics and what came out of me was black and old and putrid. It was amazing, the whole experience. My friends, you know, normal SAD folks would criticize me for fasting, then get right up in my face and remark on how good I looked! Yeah, I think the key is target colon cleansing. Did you listen to Revvell's interview with.....oh, Brenda Cobb? She works with cancer patients. I'd like to get my hands on a quality enema bag and the wheat grass juice injector for some cleansing phases. I know if I start feeling lethargic and mentally foggy and irritable, that a session of colon hydrotherapy gets me back to feeling good, which tells me that my colon is shedding another layer of the mucoid plaque and contaminating my system. I guess some people manage to successfully do this with just high fiber in-take; mine must be really bad, as I start to detox unpleasantly.:rolleyes:
Hmmmm... Thanks for sharing all of that! It's interesting information to keep in mind. I'm sort of swaying toward not juicing for really long periods unless I really needed to. I think juicing is really good for healing purposes (makes sense re: cancer patients), but yeah, it also makes sense to do the green smoothies and to alternate. And really, this is just temporary anyways because I just felt I needed the extra cleansing. :) Raw already does a darn good job!
I'm not sure if I'm ready for a colonic or enema, though. I have NO problem with very regular bowel movements, so I'm crossing my fingers that I'm doing the right thing by staying away from them for now!...
As for the flax crackers, they're in the dehydrator right now! I'm a little concerned about how gooey they looked, so I hope it works out! :)
