And it begins.
Have you ever felt inspired to take on some crazy goals? Well, today is Day 1 of a crazy juice cleanse my boyfriend and I have decided to do over the course of who knows how long … until we can’t do it any longer. This is also part of the last leg of a candida cleanse from The Whole Journey. If you are interested, you can learn more about the candida cleanse here —> Candida Cleanse I’m adding it myself to get things flowing for me as I take on 2014.
There really is no rhyme or reason to our juice cleanse, but here’s what the first day looked like for me (it’s not perfect!).
Upon Waking – 16 oz of warm lemon water (I used 1 lemon). If you can do one thing a day to support the bodies natural detoxification process, this is it.
9AM – Wheat Grass shot – this was pretty gnarly, not sure how I stomached it. I guess you aren’t supposed to eat 1 hour after wheatgrass but I caved and made an avocado coconut cream smoothie with cinnamon & stevia.
This AM I hit up the farmer’s market for more greens. I find their selection is a lot better than the store & a lot more reasonable than the neighborhood Whole Foods. I picked up: Dandelion Greens, Cilantro, Parsley, Beets & Kobucha Squash (for snacks – see, not a perfect juice detox).
At this point of the day I’m surviving off of mineralized water.
2PM – 1 part greens, 1 part carrots, 1 part apple juice in a 16 oz glass & some Teecino. I needed something warm.
4PM – raw almonds, about 1 Cup – I over did it! Realization, I LOVE to snack. These almonds were sweetened with stevia, seasoned with cinnamon & salt.
6PM – chicken bone broth with 1 T of gelatin. Very soothing & delicious. Then another Juice.
We juiced all of the dandelion greens, beets & then made an apple, parsley, spinach, cilantro, lemon juice to be prepared for tomorrow.
The day went well. Not sure how this will go over when work starts up again on Monday, but there’s only one way to find out. Until then I’m going to keep on keeping on!
