Mike suggested I start simple with things I know I like... So we have apples and carrots here.
|I couldn't put the apples in whole - something about knowing part of the stem and seeds would /could be in what I was eating/drinking just wasn't right|
|Here's what I ended up with in the Juice side|
|Part of what ended up in the pulp side - pretty amazing how DRY the stuff was - the juicer did it's job!|
|And my "orange" juice... Wasn't too bad...|
Obviously when you are on to a new idea that might help you become healthier you/I go to the internet to learn more about it and understand the questions that are rattling around in my brain...
I found this article very informative of what happens when you juice fast and how it does good things for your body & how you can survive without eating the proteins we are accustomed to (tuna, chicken, protein powder, eggs and the like)
I also got out of it:
- It is about breaking food addictions and reestablishing healthy eating
- Clearing toxins from our systems
- Resetting our minds about sugars and other things
- This is about permanently changing your eating-paradigm and never going back. Never! There is a place for enjoying a treat here and there but you know as well as I do that was never the problem!
Here's another article on the same website that was very informative:
Stay tuned for more adventures from the juicer... Tomorrow I may go wild and add something GREEN to the juice...
