Mike and I did a 6 day juice fast a month or so ago and felt AMAZING. Like SUPER amazing. We've juiced but had never done an actual juice CLEANSE. The first 3 days were hard. Not gonna lie. However, by day 6 it was a cakewalk and could have gone longer however we learned that breaking your fast is equally as important as the cleanse itself. That being said, we couldn't go out and eat a burger and fries, or even sushi for that matter (we did dream it though:). The cleanse is giving your body a rest and time to recover from the demands of consuming solid foods. We broke our fast on a SMALL bowl of kimchi and watermelon. Exciting I know. It actually was super YUMMY :)
Wash and prepare all your veggies/fruits. keep in a ziploc or large tupperware. This way, when you're ready to juice, it's easy breezy.
Another tip, place a grocery bag in your chute. This way, all the pulp catches in it and you simply toss it (unless you garden, makes for a great mulch) and is one less thing to rinse out.
Mike and I did the juice cleanse for health reasons, although, losing some poundage was a positive :)
We've kept at it juicing daily however am anxious to do a small 3 day cleanse. It does something great for my body and mind so why not!?
My favorite is 3 tomatoes, 1 carrot, 1/2 yellow squash, 2 celery sticks (adds natural salt flavor), 1/2 sweet bell pepper, 2 garlic cloves, parsley and cilantro. Squeeze fresh lime juice, add couple dashes of cayenne pepper and black pepper. Tastes like a V-8 or bloody mary, minus the vodka :)
It's like a tasty meal for me, minus the chewing! mmm mmmm mmmmm :)))
So! My question is, do you juice?
Do you have any awesome tips or juice recipes?
Please share! :)
