Paula and I agree that 3 days was the perfect length for a gentle seasonal cleanse, resting of the digestive system, and overall bodily rejuvenation. Richard was along for the ride and just enjoying the process (he loves Raw Milk Fasting and does periodic one day raw milk fasts all year long anyway) , so he probably would have joined in no matter how long Paula and I fasted!

Paula: This is my 3rd year doing the raw milk fast. The first year I went 12 days and last year 10. Sarah & I (at least I think I speak for her as well) are at the point where we feel 3 days will be sufficient. Neither of us are looking to lose weight or solve a health issue so a gentle seasonal cleanse is all that is in order.
I am following most of the standard Milk Cure “rules” for maximum rest and rejuvenation which by the way I agree with. By ‘most’, I mean I am doing a few things differently this go round. . .
In March 2011, my friend Paula Jager, owner of Crossfit Jaguar in Tampa FL and Fitness Editor for this blog, wrote a series of riveting posts about her 15 day raw milk fast.
This series on The Milk Cure sparked much interest from readers from around the world who became interested in reviving this age old remedy for improving vitality, bodily cleansing and even reversal of serious illness as practiced in the early 1900′s by the Mayo Foundation, a forerunner of the famed Mayo Clinic in Rochester Minnesota.
At the end of Paula’s raw milk fast last year, she said that she was so pleased with the results (she had the best bloodwork of her life at the conclusion of the fast) that she vowed to do a raw milk fast every year around the beginning of Spring.
Last year, my husband Richard and I joined Paula for Raw Milk Fast 2012. You can read all about our 10 day adventure by clicking here.
The correct way to break a fast after eating no solid food whatsoever for 10 days is gently and slowly with foods that are very easy to digest like homemade soup or perhaps eggs and fruit and maybe a slice or two of bacon as shown in the picture above.
So what do Paula and I do after completion of The Milk Cure 2012?
We throw caution to the wind and get us some Boss Hog, that’s what!
