21 DAY JUICE AND RAW FOOD CHALLENGE: JANUARY 1-21

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Hi everyone! So my friend and I will be doing a 21 day juice and raw foods challenge starting January 1st. We will be juicing the majority of our calories and consuming whole raw foods throughout the 21 days.

I wanted to post this challenge here to motivate you to join us!

Choose one of the following options:

*juice with raw foods for 21 days
*juice only and drink water for 21 days
*eat only raw foods (no dairy, meat, cooked foods) for 21 days

CAN HAVE'S:
*consume between 80 and 130oz of juice every day (the majority of which must be more greens then fruit) consuming strictly fruit juices causes your blood sugar to spike and this is not healthy. Keep your drinks balanced with much veggies and use fruit only to sweeten,

*1 serving of nuts or seeds. These must be raw and unsalted. Don't over do it on the nuts and seeds. 1-2 servings is more than enough. Measure your serving in individual baggies so you don't eat way more than you should!

*you can eat any raw whole foods you desire. Lettuce, cucumbers, celery, raw peanut butter (let's count that toward the serving of nuts tho!), etc.

*salad dressings must be homemade. Or using something like Annie's Salad Dressings that are made with clean ingredients. Olive oil, vinegar, white wine, and mustard with other seasonings are allowed. There are also many "cream dressings" made with avocadosor cashews. These are allowed but count toward your serving of nuts and seeds. 1 tablespoon of dressings for 2+ cups of salad. (Measure everything!)

*there are many raw, vegan dishes out there (I have many on Pinterest under (Raw/Reboot) that I use during this challenge.

*stevia and raw unfiltered honey is allowed

*water water water water

DO NOT EAT:
*nothing cooked past 118 degrees. Food that is cooked past 118 degrees is no longer considered raw.

*no caffeine. None. You may drink green tea the first week to help with headaches and detox from the caffeine but try to keep it to one cup a day.

*no sugar or artificial sweeteners. None

*no flours (since you can't cook anything I don't thing this will be a problem)

*no dairy

Focus on the "have's" not the "have not's"!

*ADD A COMMENT IF YOU ACCEPT THIS CHALLENGE
*TO PARTICIPATE YOU MUST KEEP TRACK OF YOUR FOOD AND MEASUREMENTS AND WEIGHT HERE ON SPARKPEOPLE.
*YOU WILL WEIGH AND MEASURE THE 1ST AND THE 21ST DAY ONLY.
*YOU MUST CHECK IN ON A REGULAR BASIS, CHEER FOR OTHERS, AND HOLD EACH OTHER ACCOUNTABLE!

    Hi SCOJEN, I want in on your Challenge. I have been juicing for the last 5 days. I over did it on Christmas Day and felt awful that night and the next day. I bought a omega juicer and for the last 5 days have been making Joe Cross's "Mean Green Juice" (a Dr Fuhrman's recipe) I want to become a Nutratarian. To stop putting non nutritious food into my body. Corporate America has developed so many non nutrient processed foods that are making us sick. They are tasty and addicting. I hope to over come my addiction to these foods. Lose my unwanted pounds and be healthier in mind and body. I was so in inspired by Joe Cross's film "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" and even more amazed by his results. Making that kind of progress in just 60 days sounds so fantastic. I'm not on any medication or have an autoimmune disease. I am only 30 pounds over weight and I have been physically active for several years. So I hoping I can stick to this and make 2013 my year to finally reach my health goals. Here's to a Healthier, Happier New Year.

My Mantra for the New Year "Never trade what you want most for what you want at the moment."
