Juice Journey – Volume 1

the juicer.

May 5, 2014

We got a juicer about 2 weeks ago.  Hubby’s on a mission to drop a few pounds for summer and I want to be optimal for my OverFlow retreat.  so I’m chronicling the journey here.  It should be interesting given that I’m a lover (and maker) of great coffee and all things Puerto Rican when it comes to food.  Nevertheless I’m willing to sacrifice.

So we’ve been juicing consistently.  I didn’t keep good track but I think we juiced 5 days out of 7 last week.  Then on Saturday we watch a documentary called “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.”  It’s about a guy who decided to go on a 60 day juice fast to help himself heal from a chronic condition and morbid obesity.

That  movie was the game changer.  It motivated us to take this juice thing seriously, especially since I’ve had my share of health challenges.  My goal is clarity of mind, optimal health, overall well-being, healing in my kidneys, digestive system and a complete elimination of endometriosis.

 So Biggie went out and stockpiled a bunch of fresh fruits and veggies and we are off and running.  To date, our main recipe has been the following:

  • 3-4 pink lady apples
  • 7 carrots
  • a heaping hand full of spinach and chard.

Juice tastes great! We all want more.

Today I added kale to the mix and a little lemon.  The difference is noticeable.  It’s a heartier taste with a little zing thanks to the lemon…but it’s still yummy.

We started the day with our usual apple, carrot, kale and spinach juice.  I made 30 ounces so we all got a nice healthy quantity to jump start the day.

green juice.

For dinner, I made a green juice.

  • 1 cucumber (good for skin)
  • 2 celery stalks (good for blood pressure)
  • 1 ½ apples for sweetness
  • a handful of kale
  • 2 swiss chard leaves
  • a handful of spinach
  • 1 lemon.

Boy was this juice green!  It tasted grassy but I know my body appreciated the chlorophyll, nutrients and sun energy.  Next time I’ll add another apple just to knock off some of that earthy taste.

How do I feel?  Less bloated and the tummy is flattening (yay!)

Everyone seems to notice a little more energy, and we are all sleeping restfully.  More updates soon.

Do you juice?  Feel free to share a recipe or two below.
