I have decided to juice... Why you ask?
My friend went on a juicing fast for 7 days and lost 8 pounds! Nothing but juice..So I just had to try.
I really don't know why.. I am weak when it comes to food.. I love it..
Today I took my dad with me to the local farmers market to pick up my stash. I bought tons of beets, grapes, half apple half pear, cilantro and my favorite purchase of the bunch...
I can't believe how cheap! I could have bought a large plant that keeps growing for only $7.50! It was huge!! But this time I opted for the pre cut in a bag for $5 just to see how much I will use. It's a lot.
My kids LOVE the juices I have been making! This morning I didn't have much but made a concoction
of Green Grapes, Spinach and Broccoli. They wanted more and they didn't know what was in it! For an after school snack juice I made the kids another juice with an ApplePear, Wheat Grass, & Red Grapes. Of Coarse they loved it! It's so healthy!
I honestly think now I need a bigger juicer. One that makes in bulk. The one I purchased does single cups. Which is great for starting out! I didn't want to spend tons on a juicer than end up not liking it.
I have been doing good so far. today was supposed to be my starting day but when I was a the farmers market the guy wanted me to try a hummus sample. As soon as I popped that little sucker in my mouth in knew I #Failed.. Then my good friend made pumpkin bread.. I had some... another #Fail.
But I am not going to be hard on myself.. I think I might just replace two meals with juice and have a light dinner, like Salmon.. Will see, Maybe not.. With the fast you're supposed to drink a juice about 4-5 times a day and drink tons of water in between. So I will start... Tomorrow..
Do you juice? What is your success story or good recipes?
