So I am day 2 of the Juice Cleanse! Yesterdays post was all over the place, much like my head I think. I felt like I was in the clouds most of the day.
Morning Report: That foggy head feeling isn’t quite as intense today, but I certainly do not have normal focus and energy. I do however feel lighter and not bloated at all (sorry for using that word, for some reason I think it’s the worst). My skin also feels super hydrated!
Midday Report: Similar to morning, less foggy head though. Not hungry whatsoever. I actually haven’t been hungry this whole time. I am just craving something to chew and something salty 😉
Night Report: Feeling tired, but spending two hours gardening might have contributed to that. I feel more alert, way less foggy that earlier. My body still feels light and not puffy at all. I was a little concerned I would be retaining water but I don’t think that is the case. I have only had 4 juices so far. I am a little too tired to make the last one. I am just going to pop over to Mothers Market and buy a fresh pressed juice there. This might be the hardest part because I LOVE that place. Seriously, and the juice bar is next to the kitchen. Waaaa, only one more day though!!
Here’s today juices, and again, the recipes are mostly derived from The Power of Juicing…
Juice 1: “Satin Skin” – 4 carrots, 1 apple, 1/2 knob of ginger root, handful of spinach
Juice 2: “Body Cleanser” – 2 carrots, 1/2 cucumber, 1/2 beet, lemon (peeled)
Juice 3: “Liver Mover” – 1/2 beet, 2 apples, 1/2 knob of ginger, 1/4 cucumber, lemon (peeled)
Juice 4: “Champ” – 3 carrots, 2 apples, 4 large kale leaves
I’ll be back tomorrow with the final update…EXCITED!!! I’m already thinking up recipes for Friday! And by already I mean I have been since yesterday, hmm.
*Side note – I don’t say it but try to buy all fruits and vegetables should organic, especially for juicing
