second day of juices and smoothies

Monday, June 10th, 2013

I got up at 6:30 this morning – don’t ask me why. I lingered in bed a bit, did my intentions and meditations for the day and then got up. There’s lots to do this morning!

This morning’s juice was huge – I’m still drinking it. It contained:

beets
carrots
a WHOLE lotta kale
green apple
oranges

I typically like the kitchen sink variety of juices – where I put in what I have and see what happens. I found a couple beets in the fridge and decided to put them in.

Now I’m full from juice. I am sure I will be peeing a lot again today. 🙂

I’m off to see about meeting a realtor, seeing what I can do to get this Vitamix order out and then I’m off to do a follow up with my ND for some blood tests I had done a couple weeks ago.

More to follow…

Afternoon time! Busy day thus far. Went to see the realtor and then went to a follow up DRs appt in town. Then drove back and helped at the tail end of getting boxes on palettes for Vitamix. Took a photo or two and will post that here.

Was HUNGRY at around 11 but was out and didn’t bring anything to munch. I made a smoothie today for lunch (a little more substantial)

banana
orange
an entire head of lettuce
blueberries
coconut kefir

It’s good and once again filling me up. OK, I’m off to do some orders. I’ll write more after dinner. OH YES! Here are the photos:

Evening! The dinner smoothie/juice was:

celery
radish greens
kale
carrots

and then I put it in the blender with an avocado, dulse and some dashes of hot sauce. It was good and I sucked it down pretty quickly.  I drank it outside – once again it was a beautiful evening out there.

Right now I’m going to do some journaling. Time to delve into something a little deeper within myself.

Have a lovely night.

day 4

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

I was a bit more hungry today than yesterday.

morning:

about 1 lb baby spinach (maybe a bit less)
2 carrots (to help the machine with the spinach)
5 oranges

delicious

lunch

3 oz sunflower sprouts
1/3 euro cuke
1 stalk celery
2 apples
3 oranges

dinner:
1/3 euro cuke
1 bunch red kale
3 stalks celery
4 plum tomatoes

again, I added 1/2 avocado, 1 TBSP dulse flakes, 1 rounded tsp miso and some dashes of hot sauce. Very tasty but not as spicy as last night’s juice. I liked it more spicy.

overall, a good day of juicing. I had 2 appts in town. There’s some stress in my life at present and I think I’m glad for this super nutrition here. I’m remembering to feel my feelings, let them be and be really gentle with myself…

day 3 juice fast

Monday, February 18th, 2013

day 3 of juice fast. still doing fine. here’s what I ate:

breakfast juice:

1 bunch kale
3 small carrots
1 celery stalk
4 oranges

lunch juice:

3 oz radish sprouts
1 bunch kale
3 green apples
2 oranges

dinner juice: (So happy for savory juices at night!)

2 stalks celery
4 huge bunches of baby spinach
4 oz radish sprouts
1 zucchini
5 plum tomatoes

I took the juice and put it in the vitamix, added 1/2 avocado, 1 TBSP dulse flakes, 1 TBSP miso and a few dashes of hot sauce. This was a YUMMY and SPICY green drink!

So far, so good.

day 1 of a juice fast

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

day 1 of a juice fast – doing this again. I was expecting to go to a spa-like place beginning tomorrow (3/17) and be taken care of and drink juices and eat sprouts for a couple/few weeks. Those plans didn’t pan out (dammit) so I decided to do a juice fast for a few days anyway. It won’t be the same, but it will be fine.

I woke up this morning and had a cup of tea. I decided to have smooth move tea for some dumbass reason.

My first juice was:
2 stalks celery
2 small beets
4 carrots
1 bunch kale

this made about 32 oz veggie juice. it wasn’t super sweet but it was good.

I had some water later in the afternoon.

somewhere around 3 I was hungry again so I made a big big juice of
pineapple
oranges
1 bunch kale
1 stalk celery

I kept the pineapple and oranges separate – the color was beautiful. the juicer that I use is more like a smoothie in a way – pulpy and yummy. It makes a lot of juice come out. I added some of the fruit juice with the greens and drank it down and then feasted on the pineapple and orange juice. SOOOOO yummy.

I read a bit and then took a nap with the dogs. Very sweet. It was cold in the house though so I was grateful for 2 warm dogs to curl up with.

Woke up, took the dogs out for a walk, fed them their dinner and then made myself a big juice. I liked that pineapple orange so much that I decided to have it for dinner. This time:
2 stalks celery
4-5 oz sunflower sprouts
pineapple
oranges

This time I put the whole thing together. It made about 40 oz of juice. DELICIOUS. Easy to drink.

So now the time is 8 pm and I’m loving feeling full but not stuffed and gross feeling. Day one was a good day. Let’s hope I have as much of a good day tomorrow. 🙂

all love,
Linda
