Ok, party people. I've decided that we need to do some major juicing in our lives and we're joining Lacy in her juice cleanse this weekend. Here's a picture of all the goodies I snagged at the farmers' market yesterday in Daly City! Quail eggs and Afghani food will be consumed after the cleanse ;)
We've added a lot of other fruits and veggies than Lacy's recipes calls for. They're on her site, but I can't link to that post :(
In our green we're using kale, spinach, sunflower sprouts, cucumber, apple, pear, celery, ginger, and maybe other stuff, too. What do you love in your green juice?
If you're wondering why I'm doing a 3 day cleanse, it's simple: to detox my body. We already eat pretty well, but we're having trouble staying pregnant. After 4 unsuccessful pregnancies in less than 2 years, I'm ready to get down to business... spend a few quiet days drinking juice, reading, relaxing, drinking more juice, and hanging out with my son. Luckily, my husband is along for the ride!
This morning I met some awesome mom friends at the park and they brought some picnic food from the local market. I was fine with seeing them eat all that delicious food until they busted out chocolate. I'm pretty sure my mouth started watering and I'm not usually a chocolate person! That makes me a little nervous because it's only day 1.
Have you ever done a juice cleanse?? Or another kind of detox diet? Which one did you choose? Or did you create your own?
Update... it's afternoon on day 1... feeling pretty good. A little hungry, but not nearly as hungry as I thought I'd be! The juices we've been making have been have been awesome!
