I had done some research in the past on juicing. It intrigued me but I wasn't ready to start all that. I wasn't ready to add something else to my ever busy life. I was catching up on Sydney at the Daybook and she had a post recently about juicing. She said something about eating cold cereal as dinner often, and that's so me. Now that school is on break I'm taking the plunge! I'm super excited! I made a trip to the store to stock up on fresh fruits and veggies. I am so a beginner at this so I'm not sure how long the food will last for me. I'm hoping 5 days. I went off of a recipe i found on Williams Sonoma's website and let that guide how many ingredients I bought. It took me a while to find a few things...I've never eaten Kale or Beets... In my life! So I'm excited to shock my body.
This is my plan:
Drink Juice only for 3-5 days for full detox (again, not sure how this is going to go, so the time may vary)
After I feel all detoxified, eat a whole food for 1 meal for 2 weeks.
After that, supplement one juice a day while eating balanced meals.
Cheat here and there...Seriously, I can't be a full on juicer..let's be realistic!
