CLEANSE! 3 days, Juice only?! 

I did it!!

Why?!
1. Give the digestive tract a break. A vacation from fiber. 3 days off!!
2. I want to try everything once 😉

How:
A friend gave me their Jack Lalanne juicer they no longer used!
I took to the Internet in search of recipes and a 3 day juice cleansing plan. Compared. Contrasted. Looked at my schedule and what would be most feasible. Boom 💥. I was ready!

Juicing Plan:
8am Green Juice
10am Pineapple Apple Mint.
12pm Green Juice
2pm. Lemon water cayenne. (Sometimes referred to as The Master Cleanser)
5pm. Beet Carrot Ginger Apple
7pm Almond Milk!

Time commitment? YES
Outcome? I wanted to see how my body would react to no fiber!
Full write up at the bottom!!

OUTCOME!!

This was so much fun. On day 2 my scenes of scent was super sighted I could smell each different tree as I walked down my block to the train!

Challenges: I was building a website for a client and needed to sit at a computer for an extended period of time and my go to is usually to mindlessly snack on nuts or popped corn.. so, I had a min panic attack, went on a walk and took some deep breaths standing in the sun light between the buildings in midtown. Then remembered it was time for my Spicy Lemonade!! It totally lit a fire inside me to get to work!

Yes it was time consuming, and yes I peed and pooped red beet juice for a good 5 days, BUT I felt super clear headed!! I got a lot deep meditations in and wrote a lot. thought about things from my past that had not come up in many years!!

Overall: Super cleansing, physically (bye mindless eating and binge eating), and mentally (out with the old stories and welcome space for the new ever evolving me.

Bring on the warming right heavy root vegetables of autumn and winter!

I love talking about this stuff, email me, send questions or feedback!
