I have one week to go. I’m going to try to do this as well during the last week, and with as much enthusiasm, as I did the first. I’m still feeling a little wonky, on and off tummy trouble, weepy. But this morning my brain fog seems to be gone. In fact, the whole way through this, with a handful of execptions, I have had no brain fog. That is a major improvement for me. I am the queen of brain fog. Like that Caterpillar in Alice, “Whooooo are youuuuu?”
And I seem to recover/heal a lot faster since the juice fast. I slipped down the stairs yesterday – just a couple – but the effort to stop myself twisted me up like a pretzel and it hurt. Normally, I’d be aching for a day or two afterward. I felt good as new within an hour or so. Awesome!
A word of warning about the Freckle Face juice that I posted yesterday… It may make you pee. A lot. Like all day.
Here’s a new and fabulous recipe for you. AND you can have it as a juice, or finish it as a smoothie. Actually, you can do that with any of the juices, but this one is phenomenal either way.
Cool Granny Juice/Smoothie::
- 5 Granny Smith apples
- 4 stalks celery
- 1 large English cucumber
- equal parts water or seltzer (if you’re just doing juice)
- 1 c. plain yoghurt – regular or Greek (if you’re doing the smoothie)
Juice your apples and veggies. Add the water for juice, or put everything into a blender with yoghurt and give it a whiz for a smoothie.
