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. 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. 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. Who would ever have thought that you could juice a parsnip? I sipped my lime water while I chopped and juiced. 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. 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. 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.
I will juice tomorrow morning and then have a large salad for lunch – that’s the plan anyway.
