Day 7, Cucumber-Chia Heaven

Day 7 has been another fantabulous day of this 30-day juice fasting journey. How awesome is that?! It’s evidence to me that I was absolutely right about hearing the call–I’m just so glad I took action and start this juice fast right away! :-)

I have felt energetic, focused, and positive. Can’t ask for more than that!

Breakfast

Once again, warm lemon water started my day off in a soothing way! I then had a glass of water with organic apple cider vinegar. For my breakfast juice, I went with strawberry-blueberry juice with an extra oomph ingredient: Navitas Naturals Certified Organic (RAW) Chia Seeds.

The kind folks at Navitas Naturals have graciously sent me this bag to sample. (A review–and CONTEST–for this rawsome product is coming in the near future!! Yay!!!) :-)

Ch-ch-ch-ch Chia!

Lunch

I was sooooooooo excited yesterday when my neighbor gave me some cucumbers to juice (from his garden). Eeeek!! Mine aren’t ready yet so I was super happy! :-)

My Mom sliced one and shared it with the family.

Cucumbers, dirt and all!

So I ended up with SEVEN for juicing–and this is day SEVEN of the juice fast!! Isn’t that crazy??!! Juicing seven cucumbers on day seven? LOL

I didn’t take photos of the juicing process this time. But I ended up with 40 ounces of juice, which I diluted 50% with water (I normally dilute juices while I’m on longer juice fasts–it seems like it’s easier on my system) and that made 80 ounces of cucumber juice. I drank some right away (in my Amazing Grass cup!) and shared 3 glasses with family and the rest went into the fridge for today and tomorrow.

Cool as a cucumber!

This cucumber juice was soooooooooooooo refreshing on a hot summer day!! LOVED it! (Thank you, neighbor!!!) :-)

I also had my daily shot (aka tablespoon) of E3 Live.

Dinner

(I’m publishing this post early today.)

For dinner, I think I’ll have one of my brown juices (if you’re just tuning in, it’s only brown because of the beets mixing with the greens). You can rest assured I’ve also got in plenty of water and also had some herbal tea.

That’s it for day 7!

    • Oh, I LOVE juicing! You don’t have to juice FAST to enjoy raw juices–you can add them to your meals. :-) You could have pineapple, orange, or strawberry-kiwi juice with your breakfast, for instance.

      I’m not sure how much they go for where you are. You can pay anywhere from under $100 to several hundred dollars. It all depends. I am thinking about the Green Star or the Omega 8003. I’ve heard really great things about them! They’re more expensive (in the $200-$500 range) but handle the wear and tear better (from what I’ve heard). You can start out with a less expensive juicer, though, and then save for a more expensive one (that’s what I’m doing!). :-)
