Day That I Stopped Juicing

Three days of juicing. Victory!

Wait, what? You didn’t make it to the 10 days! How can you consider that a victory, you ask? Simple! During those three days I only drank juice and while I felt like my brain was in a fog when I stopped I continued with clean eating (salads and such). There were chocolates (and the good kind too!) in the kitchen, the conference room and a stash at my own desk. I had none. Yesterday someone offered me Grimaldi’s pizza. Zip. Today there were donuts in the kitchen. Pass.

For goodness sake! I went to happy hour today and had vegetarian tacitos (-itos because they were so mini and instead of tortilla they used jicama). And not a drop of liquor.

Victory!

Will it last? Probably not. But that’s ok. As Joe Cross of Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead says “good on you for trying.”

And, I’m still juicing now for breakfast. Sometimes lunch.

Who knows, I may try juicing again and go longer than three days.

Don’t know what all the hype is about? Check out the trailer for Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead:

And if you try juicing, good on you.

Day 3 of Juicing. Variety is Key. I think.

Yesterday my cubemates enjoyed the sound of my retching-like noises as I tried I powered through my veggie juice (with beets) and then slurp happily as I enjoyed my fruit juice.

Today my strategy is variety.

Vegetables and Fruit, pre-juiced
The before shot of all the veggies and fruits, pre-juiced.
The greens needed to make Power Punch juice
That's a lot of vegetables!

Power Punch

• 2 cups kale
• 2 cups parsley
• 1 cup spinach
• 1 medium apple
• 3 celery stalks
• 1/2 green bell pepper

My modifications: no kale (ran out already?), never had any parsley and everything else is a go. Delish when served chilled!

Red Zinger | Not Pictured

My modifications: 1/4 of a beet, 1 lemon and 1 lime and sliver of ginger.

All the fruits I want! HOORAY FOR FRUITS!

The Juice

All the juice
All the juice from all those veggies and fruits. Wow!

That’s it? That was probably your reaction too. Funny thing is I still have two more juices to go. Oh, and yea, 8 more days to go. WOOHOOO!
