Juicing...Day 1

Well guys, here goes nothing!  I have officially completed one day on a juice fast.  A little over a month ago hubby and I were flipping through Netflix when we settled on a documentary called Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead.  It shows two men, Joe Cross & Phil as they both undertake 60 day juice fasts.  They have all their meals from a glass- set up with a juicer and a ton of fruits & vegetables they make all their own meals!

Now, the sixty days seems pretty insane, but it was very impressive what the men were able to do with their health and bodies.  It's pretty crazy to think that it could be healthy to go for 60 days without anything but fruits and vegetables, but when I think of how many days I go without any fresh fruits or vegs, I realize that my nutritional intake is definitely lacking. 

Now, I'm not saying that I'm going to make it an entire 60 days, but I am going to use my time juicing to kick my old eating habits and find new, better recipes to try after I'm done!  If you'd like more info, feel free to visit the website- Join the Reboot!

Here's how my juicing has been going so far...
The juicer finally got here!  Originally my plan was to wait until Thursday to start the Reboot, but I was impatient so I started Tuesday night instead.

More fruits & veges than I've ever bought at one time before- I wonder how long these'll last for?

 I'm only one day in so far, but I can tell you that already my energy level is up.  It does wane a bit during the day, but I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that I have a desk job, so I tend to be sitting a lot.  Again I'm grateful for my walk to & from work and home for lunch! 

I have some goals in my head, and I also have "before" pictures/stats, but I think I'll save those until I see the "after" :)

In the recent months it has become evident that things go into store bought juices that we should not be drinking and that has led to many people looking for more natural ways to get juice. Of course you can go out and purchase a juice that says it is all natural, but you will not know whether or not that statement is true. You could wind up paying more for a juice that is not even actually a natural juice. commercial cold press juicer
