My Review:
 I have been hearing a lot lately about juicing and its benefits from weight loss to just plain old feeling better physically and mentally. I came across Cheryl Long and her blog Treasures from a Shoebox because we are both homeschooling moms. First, I would have to say Cheryl is a very brave woman to forgo eating solid food for 60 days is no easy feat. So first off I would like to commend her on accomplishing this insurmountable goal. I am sure it was not easy. I have been contemplating doing this myself and still have not had the guts to do it. But I am putting in a spinach bed and hope to get started on it real soon.
 I myself can relate to some of what Cheryl has been through. I myself during and after having my 4 babies really can not or my body refuses (not sure which) to allow me to get back to even close the weight I was before it all went down hill. Cheryl's tell all journey is a really good look into what it is like, the up's the down's. Relying on the Lord, Cheryl and her family were able to gain a better sense of mental and physical health. Showing us all that if we try to look deep within ourselves we can have the same resolve.
