Juicing Adventure: Day 1
Today went pretty well. I started the day with a detox recipe that isn't the greatest tasting but not too bad. I'm not a picky eater/juicer at all, but this stuff tastes a little GREEN-ish. Haha. I think it also has to do with I am new with the Vitamix so I am still figuring out blending technique.
I started out the day sipping on my green smoothie while doing some paperwork. Before I left my house I blended up another full blender of juice and put it in a thermos because I knew there was a good chance I would not be home for lunch. I left the thermos in my car all day and when I got out of a meeting at 1:00 (starving) I took a gulp and it had thickened up quite a bit...ucky...but when your starving you fight through it! I took a few gulps and finished my errands. When I got home I mixed it with some ice and coconut water and all was GOOD :)
I poured my water into a cup with a straw and put some blueberries and chia seeds in it to sip on all day. The detox I am doing recommended chia seeds, psyllium husk or some kind of fiber supplement to take during the juicing to make sure you have enough fiber.
I just read it said something about adding pink himalayan salt to your water as well---will have to look more into that. I know it has a high mineral count, just not sure where to get it or if it has to be online.
So the afternoon went pretty well too, I actually felt very energized. I have ALOT of work to do so that could be a part of staying energized too because as soon as 7:00PM came, I hit a WALL! I was starving by about 6:00PM today then was busy so it went away. When I got home about 7:30PM I contemplated just going to bed because I was exhausted but I made my juice--this time a little different recipe--BEETS, yay! Overall it was a good day and looking forward to BED :)
Here are the recipes I used in my first two meals:
3 celery stalks
1/2 inch of ginger root
2 handfuls spinach
1/2 lemon (squeezed in after blended)
1 cup ice
The last juice:
2 celery stalks
1/2 inch ginger root
1 cup spinach
