So, we are coming to the close of Day 3 on our Nutri-Blast Feast. This evening we did break our fast to eat a meal of salad and a grilled chicken breast. We plan to continue 2+ Nutri-Blasts per day to replace the same number of meals/snacks. The reason for breaking the Feast tonight really was simply that we hadn't experienced a ton of detox symptoms (like we thought we would by day 3) so we decided that our choice in a dinner that was healthy wouldn't hurt us.
I chose to go on the Feast in the first place as a detox and cleanse. I definitely felt the effects of the juicing quickly: fogginess, fatigue, minor headaches, and a couple of other things. I didn't however experience any intestinal or other digestive issues, for which I am thankful.
We tried various types of combinations for our Nutri-Blasts, including spinach (my favorite dark leafy green for a juice/smoothie), kale, collard greens, celery, carrot, tomato, lemon, orange, strawberries, grapes, apples, pears, bananas, almonds, almond milk, cashews, etc. Most of the combinations were delicious and well-received by everyone. I had one epic fail...an attempt at a Homemade V8...yuck, it went down the drain. Sorry. :(
Anyway, for now that's the progress. We'll weigh in and check in again at the beginning of next week.
