Juice Fast, Day 5…

Five days in now… still going strong… Just got back from breakfast with some friends, and didn’t really have a problem with watching them down pancakes, eggs, bacon, and other stuff… Although I had a 12 oz glass of tomato juice and the same size glass of orange juice (the tomato had so much salt in it that I almost couldn’t drink it…) and my bill was actually higher than everyone else…

My daily routine is getting set now… I get up in the morning, drink a glass of “Mean Green” (recipe from the documentary…) and take a thermos to work of my own concoction… Then at night, I make a fruit smoothie, and make everything for the next day… Takes about 15-20 minutes to make everything and clean everything up, and that is for a whole day… And if I feel the need, I get a few bottled drinks from the local Turkey Hill that are all fruit and veggies and look like they are pretty decent… Maybe not optimal, but not bad…

The drinks that I am making now are:

Mean Green

2 granny smith apples

4 stalks of celery

1 cucumber

2 large handfuls of kale

1/2 lemon

bit of ginger

During the Day

1 cup low sodium tomato juice

2 large tomatoes

1/2 green pepper

1/2 cucumber

1 handful of kale

lots of pepper and hot sauce

Fruit Smoothie

3 oranges

3 apples

1 cup soy milk

1/2 lemon

(sometimes some pears or peaches…)

Seems to be working…
