Today I started my juice fast. The idea came at the urging of my son. He saw a film on Netflix's and encouraged me to watch as well. It is called Sick, Fat and Nearly Dead, more information on the film can be found here: http://www.fatsickandnearlydead.com/
I purchased a Breville juicer as recommended in the film, it is wonderful, easy to clean. It arrived just before Dave came home for his two week visit from China. I didn't want to start the diet with Dave home and all the wedding activities as I thought it would be a recipe for failure. So, first thing this morning, Liz and I were busy selecting what would go in our juice this morning. Our recipe is as follows, 2 apples, two oranges, 1 grapefruit, a handful of strawberries and 2 bananas. While I juiced the fruit, Liz crushed the ice in our handy Ninja blender. The results is a wonderful very refreshing juice! Liz took a GNC shaker cup off to school with her as well as another dose for her lunch. I am currently enjoying a refreshing glass of juice as I write this entry. I was surprised at how quick and easy it was to clean up the juicer. Further, I was amazed at how dry the leftovers were. If all the juices taste this yummy I am excited!
