I decided to do a juice day today just to see what I was getting myself into and to get some practice with the process.
I started the day juicing some cantaloupe and added some coconut water and a bit of lime juice. Pretty yummy.
From there it went downhill. I was in a bit of a hurry because I had to get to work, so I probably could have saved this next juice from yuckiness if I had had more time to play with it. I juiced some Romaine, cilantro, pears, celery and cucumber. It definitely needed help. I drank it cause I'm not too fussy, but I'm putting it in the Loss column.
I'm in the middle of my third batch right now, and it's really good. I did a bunch of carrots, a beet, some pineapple and some more coconut water.
I made all these juices using my Vitamix and then straining the mixture through a nut milk bag. It was fun. Kinda like milking a cow! My hands turn interesting colors too.
One thing I'll have to work on is making sure I get enough calories in. I'll really have to work to do that today. I may just call it a wash and live and learn. As Skinny said in her recent blog. Some things work, some don't.
It also seemed that I drank less water than usual today. I usually drink quite a bit, so I don't think cutting back some will hurt.
I'm surprisingly not hungry!
