Day three, and all is well in my juicing world. I was bit tired today, so my wake up time was bit later than usual and I took a short nap in the afternoon, but I think it is just my body adjusting to the juicing. On the positive side, I wasn’t hungry today. No hunger pains, just a tiny bit of a tummy grumble just before my meal time, but that was about it. Looks like my body and mind made peace with the juicing programme and are embracing it.
Surprisingly, when I prepared my juicer and started juicing, that is when I realised that I am quite hungry. It was just a sudden realisation and was shortly satisfied by the prepared juice, so no harm. But apart from that, all is hunky dory 😉
As you can imagine, my full body is aching after the yesterday’s tumble but I just keep stretching and doing everything I would normally do, just slowly so I don’t strain my muscles more than I have to.
Now, for my morning and mid morning juice I had four small pears with good size ginger, two apples, three smallish parsnips and few carrots. It was lovely, but the pears were kind of lost in it, so will need to try something that will give their flavour more of a room.
Today was a first day I didn’t have s smoothie! Just juice all the way 😉 But I had such an appetite for avocado! As avocado is a very soft fruit, I saw no harm in actually normally eating it (you can’t really juice it…). So I put a tiny bit of salt and pepper and chilli on each half and indulged the treat. It was divine, however, next time half of avocado would suffice.
For my lunch and dinner I was pulling all stops and went totally veggie. I juiced whole cucumber, very small head of broccoli, two peppers, two shallots (for a great kick), one small scotch bonnet pepper, four tomatoes, four radishes and three carrots. I also added two handfuls of spinach, but I prepped it in different way. I don’t think my juicer would be able to deal with spinach, I put it in a blender with about 150ml of coconut water. Blitzed the life out of it and then poured it through the blender. That gave me nice green juice. Overall, nice juice with a kick from the shallots, the scotch bonnet pepper kind of got lost in it. I will either have to blitz her with the spinach or take much bigger one. I just didn’t want the juice burn through me, so I was quite cautious with it.
That’s all for now. Stay strong and keep juicing.
