JUICE FEAST? yes, you heard me right. I say feasting because I plan on drinking lots of yummy juice (I’m not trying to limit consumption for some quick weight-loss scheme). Next week, my husband and I (I don’t know how I convinced him to do it with me) will be feasting for 4 days on fresh pressed fruit and vegetable juice (organic, of course).
I have been feeling rundown lately. I’m tired, my head is foggy, and I’m not my usually cheerful self. I feel like I have constantly been reaching for the treats and my meals haven’t been living up to my high health standards. I need to clean-up, recharge, and get the taste of sugar off my tongue.
According to Sarah at my new roots, ” [Spring] is a good time of year to go on a juice diet because the weather is warming up so our bodies can take more raw foods, fruits and veggies are coming into season, and as the seasons make their transition outside, it feels so right to make one inside.”
I have done a cleanse once before. I ordered my juice from Blue Print Cleanse and it was great, but this time, I am going to save myself some serious $$ and have some fun by doing my own juicing. Do you have any recipes I MUST try?
It is good to prepare your body before so the the juice diet isn’t too much of a shock. You are more successful and it feels better if you “prime” your system a bit. What is the best way to get ready? Eat 100% GREEN: animal-free and sugar-free. Also, try to limit salt, oils, and wheat as much as you can the few days leading up. A green smoothie or two a day for about a week before and after the cleanse great.
I’m off to go plan my juicing…Pin It
