I am starting my juice fast again after a 6 day hiatus. I have got to. I enjoy the good feelings I get from juicing. Last night I couldn't sleep and had night sweats. When I juice, I sleep really well. I also don't have the energy as I do when I juice.
This time my husband said he would join me in a 3 day juice, but he will not give up his coffee. He does 2 pots a day of coffee, so going without it wouldn't be pleasant. At least he is willing to juice. He has given me the challenge of "make it taste good". He has taken a sip of what I normally drink and turned a sour face. It is going to be a challenge. I will have to put more fruit in his juice.
I don't know how my juice could be so nasty to him... after all, he is Norwegian, have you ever eaten lutefisk? It is the most horrible thing you can imagine. I got by the smell once and actually tasted it. I had such a hard time trying not to be rude and put on a good face in front of my MIL and family. If you don't know what lutefisk is, it is raw fish that you leave in lye for like forever until it smells and turns to yuck. Sorry if you are Norwegian and like lutefisk. Just keep in mind that I am mostly Danish and we are known for our pastries. They are a lot tastier. I have their song they sing at the family reunions going through my head now... "lutefisk and lefsa, lutefisk and lefsa, we're Norwegian, you betja." They are such a hoot.
Here is a link to another song about lutefisk that I have sung at one my husband's family reunion... well, I didn't get very far in singing it before I was booed into stopping. I even was threatened with being pelted with a lutefisk, but they didn't want to waste it. http://scotthove.typepad.com/l
So I am drinking even now my veggie juice on day 1 again? or day 14 (if I consider the 6 days eating a juice vacation). I still am dealing with the loss of my brother, but I am anxious to start up again.
