Tonight, I made my healthy banana bran muffins.
Tomorrow morning, this will be my breakfast:
The local company who wanted me to try out their juice cleanse doesn’t use organic vegetables and fruit, so I declined their offer.
It takes pounds of fruit and veggies to make enough juice for a cleanse, and since non-organic fruit and veggies are full of pesticides and most likely GMO, I’d be drinking quarts of pesticide-laden juice. That’s not my idea of being more healthy.
I’d rather make my own organic juice at home and know what’s in there. After some research, I bought a more powerful juicer yesterday, the Breville JE98XL Juice Fountain Plus, on sale for $144. It’s a 850-watt, professional juice extractor that takes whole apples.
Don is way ahead of me. He’s been “eating” nothing but freshly squeezed organic fruit and vegetable juice for seven days. He’s pretty tired of it, and I don’t blame him. He’s not feeling well on only juice.
He lost 9+ pounds, which is amazing. I don’t think I would lose that much after seven days. He’s also been working out — I’m not sure I can work out on just juice.
So let the juice cleanse begin. Our fridge is overflowing with kale, spinach, celery, carrots, cucumbers, ginger, apples, oranges, kiwis, and blueberries.
My goal is to only have juice for three days. I’m motivated and curious how I will feel. I think the hardest part will be not having coffee, and I’m bracing myself for headaches.
Come on back to see how I’m doing. I plan to blog about my juice fast every day.
Have you ever done a juice cleanse? How did it go? What was the hardest part for you?
