Day 5 of my juice feast... Today was an interesting day. I left my house to run some errands around 11:30 am and did not take any juice with me. I figured I would be home in a couple of hours.
Well, several hours later... I am thankful for the local organic grocery store's juice bar. I had to make 2 trips for my lunch and dinner. For lunch, I had a raw salad made with kale, onions, red peppers, and a special dressing. I usually have at least 2-3 romaine lettuce salads along with my juice throughout the day. It helps when I have the urge to chew. The nice thing is, it digest quickly and does not slow down my detox. The kale salad was a nice change.
For dinner, I had a wonderful green juice. It had collard greens, kale, cucumber, and a few other things that added up to a delicious drink.
As I am walking out the store enjoying my drink. I began to laugh. I thought when did I cross over to the world of juicing and raw food. I am a midwest meat and potatoes girl that likes vegetables, but never thought I would be walking to my car with my veggies hand delivered in a glass.
Wow, how things have changed. Luckily, an enjoyable change with beneficial and noticeable results. So far, I have lost 5lbs. in 5 days, my skin is glowing, I am sleeping through the night and waking up with more energy in the morning.
And the best part is my waist is getting smaller... : ) Definitely, a health benefit. I will post before and after pics once I am done.
