Don't Quit. Day 10.

Saturday, December 28, 2013





While I have been doing pretty well on the juice fast, I have been weakening a bit. Yesterday I ate a bean taco made from hubby's chili. This morning I had one gluten free jalapeno pepper biscuit with an egg. While it's not too bad of a slip, nothing unhealthy - it has it's consequences. The weight loss stalled. My energy crashed again. emoticon Food just makes my energy and strength crash big time. It makes me feel crappy, like I have major food intolerances. The good thing is with so much juicing I am bouncing back better. The fluctuations are less intense.







This morning we went to the grocery store to pick up some more vegetables. The cashier asked if we cleaned them out of produce and if we were juicers. He mentioned he and his wife juice once a day. It's nice to meet like minded people.

I needed a juice to strengthen my Willpower and give me strength to make it through the day, so I created a new recipe to help. It's a sweet/tart blend of flavors with a splash of ginger to energize. There is nothing like a new recipe to help keep one on track.






Today I submitted a juice recipe to the Reboot with Joe Cross website. While I don't know if they will accept it and post it, I really LOVE the juice. I called it Don't Quit juice because the flavors are so tasty that you won't want to stop juicing. Yet at the same time it's so packed full of nutrition that it's amazing.







Don't QUIT Juice

1 bag of Cranberries
1 bag of Red Grapes
1 small piece of ginger or add to taste.
You can stop here for a pink fruity delight. emoticon

If your a beginner juicer add in:
3 Kale leaves.

If your more experienced add in the bunch of Kale. The juice was so flavorful I was able to add in a whole bunch of kale without noticing the flavor of it. The juice is very green. I can't think of any time I have ever been able to drink a whole bunch of kale in one sitting. emoticon








My other juice is an energizing juice.

1 bag of mung bean sprouts. Makes 1 cup of juice.
Pour into a quart mason jar.
Juice enough Granny Smith Apples or Pink Lady Apples to fill the Mason Jar.

Screw on lid and shake well to mix. Pink Lady Apples are my favorite apples to juice.






Raising and juicing sprouts makes me feel kind of hippie-like. emoticon







Juice On.

    I'm glad you listen to your body and are getting great results with mega nutrients from veggies and fruit juicing. But what is your significant source of complete proteins? I would think with your MS, that you would need a high quality protein for muscle mass nerve health and energy.

    I used roughly 6 cups of bean sprouts. I am estimating. There are 3 grams of protein in one cup of sprouts so multiply that by 6. That means there are about 18 grams of protein in a cup of mung bean juice.

    I'm always getting ideas of things to add to my juices when I read your blogs. I've never thought of adding cranberries. Thanks!

    I really love the sound of this juice! I don't have a juicer, just a hand mixer. I wonder if that would work?

  Wow, those recipes sound delicious! You should try a Green Lemonade, it's 10 leaves of kale, 15 leaves of lettuce, 2 lemons, and a green apple, it's really energizing and delicious. It always makes me think of summer. Lol. Keep up the great work and great job for getting back up and keeping at it!
