I managed to complete seven days of green juicing and got too tired of it. It is really a lot of work and the amount of compost created was astonishing. I was producing two ice buckets full of waste a day! Anyway, yesterday I had to eat a salad instead of drinking it. It was very good. Then for dinner I ate a piece of chicken wrapped in a tortilla with lettuce, tomato, and hummus. Still sensible choices, just not juice. I actually feel mentally better (not so deprived). I guess the juice fast ends and the sensible eating begins. I think my body appreciated the fast and will do it again in a couple of months. I will also continue to drink juice a couple times a week to get the boost of veggies in my diet. This morning I made the family a huge breakfast of pancakes, bacon, and strawberries (I had green tea and strawberries). Doing good so far. Now I just need to get my butt moving more.
