The Juicing Adventure: Day Two.

21 Jan

I am pretty hungry. Hungry in the way that I fantasize about chicken, bagels, eggs, and whatever else I could get in your mouth given the option. The funny thing about it is I don’t feel like I am starving, like I am deprived of vitamins or nutrients. My energy level is actually great. However, this empty feeling in my stomach is controlling all my thoughts and it is quite distracting.

So for Day Two I am ingesting this blend of green leafy vegetables including Kale and I added ginger, lemon, and green apple to sweeten the taste. The lemon definitely helps but I think the rather large portion of ginger is making this juice entirely too spicy. I also have the Peach Detox tea ready and a bottle of water. Let’s see if I can’t make myself less “hungry”.

The Juicing Adventure: Day One.

20 Jan

My boss, Cari, who is a wonderful treasure box of knowledge of foods and ingredients to infuse your body to become super-duper healthy, is taking me on a fasting adventure. For the next three days, I will be detoxifying my body of all the fast food, coffee and bagels, and miscellaneous dangerous New York City food that has poisoned my body. I am excited, I am nervous, but overall hopeful that this experience will be a positive one, with positive results.

So for Day One, since I have already ingested an egg and sausage breakfast, I will be pre-fasting on a diet of humungous amounts of water, detox tea, and a large juice of beets, kale, ginger, celery and lemon juice. I think my brain is convincing me I am hungry out of the nervous idea of not eating, but the juice tastes and smells absolutely fantastic, and I am instructed to sip it slowly to get used to it. 20 minutes to ingest the entire juice. For the evening, I will be drinking a tea for regularity from Yogi Tea.

I am told that as my body detoxifies I may experience some aches and pains, breakouts, and other weird bodily effects as it attempts to clear itself out. Here I go! Stay tuned for more.
