Wow, day ten!! After today this will be the longest I’ve ever gone on juices. I woke up feeling just awful, headache, a bit of nausea and exhaustion so ended up calling in sick for the day. After lots of rest, juice and the usual protocol I’m actually feeling pretty great! I’m sucking down the last of my juice today (pineapple/orange, omg) and loving it. Also, no pesky cravings which was nice.
A couple of things I learned while taking it easy today:
1. Boiling orange peels with cinnamon sticks and cloves an then letting it simmer makes our apartment smell amazing. A nice use for all those orange peels I would be throwing away!
2. I need to stick with basic juices I know I like more often than not. I think I’d generally be happy sticking with a couple basic green juices and a couple orange juices. They always satisfy me which is more than I can say for some of the more “creative” combos.
Lots and lots of juice:
24 oz celery/romaine/cucumber/lemon juice
32 oz pineapple/orange juice
8 oz coconut water/romaine juice
probiotics (sample from the natural foods store)
32 oz celery/romaine/orange/green onion/tomato juice blended w 1 Tbsp raw honey
40 oz pineapple/orange juice
plenty of spring water
