5 lbs In 5 Days – Day 5

I found yesterday’s juice fast quite easy so decided to do it again today rather than my original plan of juicing for 2 meals a day and eating for one.

According to Jason Vale’s 5 lbs in 5 days detox plan, today was day 5.  I woke up early and made the 4 juices in one go.  I took three to work and left one at home in the fridge for ‘supper’.

These are the ingredients for 2 servings of Sweet Beet Smoothie. sweet beet smoothie raw food I chop everything up ready to feed in to my juicer before I start.  I should have taken a photo of the finished result as it was a lovely dark purple colour.  It tasted pleasant and was very easy to drink.  I love blackberries but am not a huge fan of raw beetroot but they kind of equalled each other out and it was drinkable but I didn’t love it.Sweet Beet Smoothie in bowl This little lot however made the most fantastic juice.  These are the ingredients for Pear ‘n’ Parsnip; mint, pears, parsnip, apple and lime.  It was fantastic.pear n parsnip raw food Who would ever have thought that you could juice a parsnip?pear and parsnip ingredients I sipped my lime water while I chopped and juiced.lime water I took the fresh mint to work to have in boiling water and I also took some tea bags.  Tea is not part of this programme but I did have two cups today with the mint and no milk.  It was very refreshing actually and I didn’t miss the milk at all.mint and tea There’s me ready for the day; 2 portions of pear ‘n’ parsnip, one portion of sweet beet smoothie and some fresh mint.  The only thing I didn’t have from the Jason Vale programme was the ginger shot.Daily juice I was very hungry in the evening so as well as my sweet beet smoothie I had one of my SOS allowables; a ripe avocado with lime juice and black pepper.  A quick and simple supper which I really enjoyed.Avocado and smoothie

I will juice tomorrow morning and then have a large salad for lunch – that’s the plan anyway.

About Lose Weight and Gain Health

Hi! My name is Zoe and I live in Hastings, East Sussex, with my son Harvey and dog, Milton. I have been fighting the fat for years but this time I am serious. I want to lose weight and gain health. This blog is about how I am changing my lifestyle so I can lose weight but not by just "being on a diet" but by making small changes to our lives so that as I lose weight, I gain health. I want my family to be healthy too and never have to struggle with their weight like I have. In common with many large people, I have gained and lost weight many times over the years. This time, I want to lose it and maintain a healthy low weight. I am interested in eating food that is nutrient dense and delicious and that appeals to children and adults. I do not eat animal products so follow a vegan diet. I try to use locally produced food supplemented with what I can grow myself. I support and try to use local farmers markets and farm shops. Another objective is to add more exercise to our days. It sounds so simple when I write it down :-)
