Today’s mission was a juice fast. Just juice. That was all I aimed to consume today. I did have several herbal teas too and glasses of water to make sure I stayed hydrated.
One of my vegetable beds is a disaster. Whatever I try, I am defeated by slugs. The Purple Sprouting Broccoli and Brussels have been munched to bare stalks and they are now working their way through the cauliflower. They started munching the cabbage and before they finished it, it has started bolting.
So I picked one of the cabbages and dug up a parsnip to add to my first juice of the day.
The first juice of the day was made with cabbage, parsnip, celery, apple and pear. It was a lovely bright green colour and tasted rather pleasant. I would definitely make this one again. Juice number 2: half a pineapple, half a lemon, celery, red pepper and cucumber. Not as good as juice number 1 but OK. Juice 2 made 2 large glasses. I drank one immediately and put the other in a thermos flask with some ice as we were out for the afternoon and early evening. Juices are best drunk immediately but I took one along so I didn’t give in and have something else.
One very happy boy. James and I endured 2 hours sitting in the cold noisy cavernous space that is one of the little fellas favourite places in the world.Revolution Skatepark
We didn’t get back until 9pm so I had a small juice for “supper” made with a blood orange, kiwi, carrot and celery. I added half a tsp of Spirulina too for extra nutrition.
I feel OK after my juice fast. I am quite tired and cold but that will be resolved by an early night. I do feel very pleased with myself for sticking to the juice fast.
