So I've been juicing for two days now (though I have had a bit of other food during that time), and it's actually been kind of fun - finding new flavors and going through the prep work of juicing for every meal. Amanda and I did a lot of work together today - hit the farmers market for some produce that we can purchase from local farmers, then to Whole Foods for the rest, washing and cutting up fruits and veggies, and making a blended soup for lunches for the next few days. It was really nice to do that together. We'd gotten out of the habit of making meals together over the last month or so, and I'm looking forward to juicing together.
Side note - every time I say or type juicing, I can't help but think of steroids....I assure everyone we are not doing 'roids. :)
Last night I went to hang out with some friends, and I went the whole night with just one container of Naked juice, a couple bottles of water, and a handful of raw veggies. They were eating steak and grilled corn and drinking wine, but I completely abstained and felt good about it! Though I won't lie, that steak looked delicious! :)
Here are a couple photos of the drinks I've had so far:
Tomorrow morning I'll be making our breakfast while Amanda is on her way home from her overnight 12 hr shift. I think I'll make something with plums, nectarines, grapes, apples, and probably a celery thrown in for good measure. Then soup for lunch while at work and another juice for dinner!
Finishing up my herbal laxative tea now (TMI? too bad), and settling in to bed with an episode of Eureka and Warehouse 13. I might make it through one of them before dozing off...
