Earlier in the week I attempted a juice fast, and failed miserably within 24 hours. I don’t know what it is, but whenever I place restrictions on myself my inner child rebels. On Monday (day one of my fast) all I wanted was food I could chew. By dinner time my plate was loaded with mashed potatoes, salad, and green beans. The only good thing about my 3-days of fasting failure was that when I did chew food it was healthy. See some of my eats!
Arugula, cherry tomatoes, carrots, purple cabbage, string beans, and a homemade dressing of olive oil, fig vinegar, amino acids, Dijon mustard and honey. Mmm…potatoes!! The gravy is literally golden mushroom soups cooked with onions! Mango, watermelon, pineapple juice, and a little flax seed oil =
A very refreshing breakfast juice! Blackberries, mango, pineapple juice and flax seed also works![/caption] [caption id=”attachment_1380” align=”aligncenter” width=”500”] This wasn’t my favorite, as far as smoothies/juices go, but like I said…it works.
Even though my juice cleanse sucked I’m not giving up my whole cleansing obsession. My skin looks better, but I really want a full flush. If you’re from Ritual Cleanse or another reputable cleansing company, please contact me!
