Day 12 with Sprouts on Top!

Hello, it’s day TWELVE!! Can you believe it?? I can’t! Time is just whizzing by like crazy! :-)

Details

I didn’t sleep all that great last night. I honestly think it was because I wrote a LOT yesterday to meet deadlines and I just overworked my brain. I couldn’t shut it off last night!! That’s a good thing and a bad thing all wrapped in one when you’re a writer/blogger. ;-)

I’m feeling okay today, though!

Breakfast

As soon as I got up this morning, I headed straight for my tea kettle. I heated some water and poured it over my half of a lemon to make my usual lemon water. Half an hour after that, I had my breakfast juice…

Since I didn’t sleep all that great, I was feeling just a little lazy so instead of being creative and making a fresh juice, I drank a cup of my defrosted pineapple-strawberry juice.

Pineapple-Strawberry Juice

(In my Amazing Grass shaker cup–LOVE this thing!!!!)

Snack

E3 Live (I’m LOVING this stuff!!!) and water with organic apple cider vinegar.

Lunch + Dinner

My plan for making my lunch juice was to double the ingredients so I’d end up with enough juice for lunch and dinner later. I’m going to an early July 4th celebration tonight so I didn’t want to be messing with produce, the juicer, and cleaning up later this afternoon.

Creative Chaos!

I ALMOST forgot to take a photo of my ingredients! Some of them had already gone into the juicer. LOL There was a big pile of sprouts on top and I grabbed a handful of stuff to juice, messing that up. Also, one beet is missing from the photo and some spinach. What? I wanted my lunch! ;-)

All piled onto a plate (so you can’t see it all):

4 carrots

3 small beets

2 stalks celery

big handful parsley

2 big handfuls spinach leaves

4 kale leaves

nob ginger (about an inch)

2 small-ish apples

chunk of Amish-grown cabbage (shown here)

+ about 2 ounces of Alfalfa sprouts on top! :-)

Raw Colors are Beautiful!!

Prepared!

A lot of folks who juice fast either freeze their juices or make up a little ahead of time (especially if you’re working outside the home) and fill jars up to the very top with the juice and then put the lids on tight. You may lose a little of the nutrients, but it’s waaaaaaaaaaayyy better than storebought juices that are filled with preservatives. :-)

I didn’t dilute the juice that went into my Amazing Grass shaker cup but I did dilute the juice that went into those two glass jars: 50% juice/50% water.

Amazing Grass All Shook Up!

This juice was so sweet and tasty I didn’t even taste the green Amazing Grass powder!! I sure felt the energy it gave me, though. These Amazing Grass powders are rockin’ my world–especially the wheat grass!! :-) Since it was juice, though, once I got near the bottom of the cup, there was some grainy action goin’ on. That was because I didn’t shake it well enough. It doesn’t bother me. I love to taste health!! I haven’t had the chance to try this powder in a smoothie yet (’cause I’m juice fasting) but I don’t think you’d notice the powder at all in a smoothie. :-)

I’ll probably drink both of those extra juices before the end of the day. I also always, always drink plenty of water and herbal tea. :-)

I just can’t believe tomorrow is day 13 already! It’s craziness. Today was another great day… Yay!!!

  3. I am so happy you show pics of the juices before stirring them up…it’s MY FAVORITE part of juicing. They are so pretty…Like rainbow sherbet!

    I think a carrot/apple/ginger and BEET should start off my dinner/juice fast….don’t you? :)
    Happy Monday

    • I know! That’s what I was thinking: rainbow sherbet!! :-)

      That would be a great juice, Cindy. It’s sooooooooooo delicious!! I saw your other question in another post as I’m moderating comments and the advice I have for you is just use your imagination and use lots of fruits and veggies that YOU love. Mix and match. Have fresh apple juice for breakfast or as a snack and include lots of greens in your juices, too. Drink a raw juice every time you’re feeling empty, weak, etc. and be sure to drink plenty of water. You can also drink herbal tea.

      Hope that helps!!
      :-)
      Michele
