Juicing to Improve My Health Days 1-3
This time I decided to try a different approach towards getting back on track with health improvement and weight loss. Juicing.
Joe Cross. The Juice Guy. He’s helped thousands of people to improve their diet by showing them how to make fresh juices from vegetables and fruits, and to increase the amount of plant based foods one eats daily. Plant based foods include vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and seeds. I am very impressed with his life changes. I juiced my way through cancer treatment years ago and loved fresh vegetable juices.
I decided to not wait any longer – not until I can afford it – not until I can get a ride – I started using what I have in the house, and today, day 3 I was given slews of fresh produce.
This is not organically grown produce for the most part.
So I don’t know how I will do as I have a long history of getting excited about things with poor follow through but I also have lots of experience of success in making life changes. I am curious to see where daily juices will take me.
Juice daily using mainly vegetables.
Eliminate sugars and wheat
Continue to eat several small meals a day without other restrictions.
Day 1 – what do I have in the house???? hmmmm…
4 Stalks Celery, 1 large McIntosh apple – yummy juice
Day 2 – don’t really wanna but I will –
4 stalks celery, 1 large Mac apple, wedge watermelon – yummy, glad I did.
Day 3 – exploring recipes and decide to add smoothies as an option
– Baby spinach, fresh pineapple, raspberries, banana
– 1/4 c. plain Greek yogurt, a bit of water to start ‘er off and ice cubes. – first 2 swallows yummy – then ewwww sour, a bit bitter and very acidic
– 1 individual serving size stevia, big improvement.
*** Learned – not to use 2 highly acidic fruits in same juice – puckery
****Also learned – these fresh juices set well and do not make me feel shaky, weak, nauseous, or any other blood sugar-thingy-going-on way – a wonderment!
