|This is me now. 5' 4", 220 lbs.|
I have migraine headaches and am on a panalopy of different medications to treat bipolar disorder. Can a juice fast help cure me of some of my afflictions? I don't know, but I am willing to try.
I will be documenting my progress with the fast on this blog, both for my own record, and as a way to hold myself accountable. I don't expect this to be an easy process!
|My beautiful new juicer and lots of produce!|
I have spent $93.00(!) in produce to get me going this week. This includes:
2 bags green apples (granny smith)
1 bag fuji apples
1 bag oranges
1 bag red grapefruit
1 bag lemons
2 bags carrots
2 stalks celery
1 bag spinach, kale and other greens
3 sweet potatoes
1 carton strawberries
I ideally I would add to that ginger root, avocados, and beets, but I'm making do with what I found for now.
Laurelei and Iron have both decided to attempt the juice fast with me for 10 days. I see this not just as a way to jump-start our road to health, but as a cleansing process for the spiritual debris of the past few years.
Here is the juice recipe from Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. It is going to be my staple juice (but I need to get some ginger root)
Mean Green Original Recipe
6 kale leaves
4 celery stalks
2 green apples
1 piece of ginger
Ready, set, GO!
