I haven’t posted for awhile. First the holidays, then…
My daughter, Audrie, called us and said that we need to go to Netflicks or Hulu and watch a movie, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. So we did.
The movie inspired all of us to go on a juicing fast, as recommended in the movie. And the benefits have been great. I feel much better, my mental acuity is greatly improved, my energy is better, I’m no longer sneezing every day from allergies – I’ve only sneezed once since we started the fast – I haven’t had a headache in the last two weeks (several headaches during the first few days, however) – and I’ve lost 18 pounds in 16 days!
For sixteen days I have only been drinking juice. I have not been hungry at all and – I was worried about this – my compulsive eating habit is gone. I was always eating something and now I don’t even think about it.
There is a lot of variety – you can juice a lot of different things – though I have been using mostly the Mean Green (recipe below), but the carrot-apple-ginger is an absolutely delicious dessert juice! You can find a lot of information and great juicing recipes at http://www.rebootwithjoe.com/
Mean Green Juice (tastes good!)
4 celery stalks
6-8 leaves kale
1 tbsp ginger
Wash all produce well
Peel the lemon
Put them all through a juicer
