Juice Fast

That's right, I'm doing a juice fast. I re-watched Fat, Sick, and Dying and I decided to try it.

My CSA came on Sunday, and this past evening I went to the grocery and picked up some goodies for the juice machine. I'm looking for a re-boot. Get some change in my life. I need it.

My CSA: $40

My grocery splurge: $56

I don't mind paying so much for a crap load of produce. Being re-inspired on the juicing, I'm going to venture out of my comfort zone and get creative.

Here are some of my recent creations.

Day One:

Cucumber, heirloom melon, and granny smith apple.

Cheery tomatoes, apple, and beet.

chard, radish leaves, red onion, red leaf lettuce, and tomato. 

Day Two:

Apple, tomatoes, lettuce, and pear. 
Lunch was celery, lettuce, chard, and radish.

Lettuce, apple, carrot, beet, and grapefruit.

Soooo much juice. I did have a cup of soy milk the first day, but not today. I'm just looking for a cleaning out from this, not so much weight loss. I'm also taking a fiber tablet in the morning to hopefully help with the flood of sugar from the fruit.

It's a shame I started this juice fast this week. I just roasted some yummy veggies so I had to put them in the freezer so I could do this. Ha!

I'll have more juice later in the week.


  1. Wow! I found you through searching google "whole foods using Food Stamps" ! You have truly inspired me. My blog is to eat better and to document it. I currently receive food stamps for a family of 6 (in PA) and if you can do it then I can. :)

  2. Hi!

    Cool! I'm glad you like my meager blog! Thanks!
