Day 1-Leggo!

So here we are at day one. Here is a pic of my big veggie shop from yesterday. I got sh*t that looks like BROOMS SON! Just seeing all the bright colors of the produce lifted my mood today.

I started the morning with a simple Carrot, Apple, Ginger Juice:
3 (organic) carrots
2 (organic) apples
1 small piece of ginger (about 1")
Ice and a big cup

Now, I don't want to get into the debate about organic vs. regular fruit and veg...I'm sure there are other blogs that can give you the skinny on all of that. Organic maybe more expensive...if you are in a restricted monetary situation, get to Food 4 Less or some other market and buy your veggies. I'm going to check out my local farmers markets and go downtown to the produce district and see if I can come up on some deals.

CAJ was super delicious, fresh, and hearty. I can seriously drink it everyday and be perfectly happy, but woman cannot survive on Carrots and Apples alone...

Mid-morning is all about the Mean Green:
1 Cucumber
4 Celery Stalks
2 Apples
6-8 Kale Leaves
1/2 lemon
1 tbsp. Ginger

Freshly. Cut. Grass. I really have no other words to describe the Mean Green. It's refreshing and just PURE tasting. The celery really shines here.

I ended up having a bunch of Mean Green-about 25 I sipped on all of it for a few hours. I felt like hell at about 2 o'clock and laid down for an hour. I got with it on the next juice as soon as I got up, because I was feeling headachy and discombobulated.

Lunch/Supper Gazpacho Juice:
4 Plum Tomatoes
1 large cucumber
2 stalks of celery
1 red bell pepper
1/4 small red onion
2 cups parsley, leaves and stems, roughly chopped and packed into the measuring cup
1 Lime

This one is my favorite after CAJ...Like drinking salsa juice or a nice cold GAZPACHO (no one likes hotzpatcho). I'm feeling loads better, headache is gone, and I no longer feel like shit. I think I found my new hangover cure...I might add some jalapeno too and kick it up a notch. BAM!

I had a video, but cant get it to convert from a Windows Live Movie Maker file to a .wmv file....I'll try to figure it out.


  1. I laughed at "hotzpacho" and I remember that headache when I was doing "Master Cleanse." Body is detoxing the 1st few days, so I'm glad you forged ahead. The morning mix sounded tasty!

    1. Thanks for the support cuzz. Come over some morning and i'll hook u up with some.
