Day 3 started with an early workout.
I faded hard the night before and had no desire to go all Julia Child. I left it for the morning. I made an arrangement with the Jack La Lane juicer. I will create smaller pieces to feed it and it will juice them quickly without my intervention. I wanted to make something red and with limited time, I decided nothing with leaves in the juicer. I made the following:
– One beet root
– One whole lime
– One cucumber
– Five carrots
– One cup red rasberries (didn’t produce much)
– One tbsp. Vega protieen powder
This was juiced, and produced the deep red I was going for. I thought since I was only using ingredients I hate, this would be a real test of my dedication. I was “manning up.” Surprise. It was the best one yet. But my expectations are not too high at this point.
– Three pineapple rings
– One green kale leaf
– One bannana
– Coconut milk
This blended, produced the light green concoction pictured. It wasn’t bad. Not as good as the juice. Throughout the day, I felt about the same as the previous day… without the night time fade. Surprisingly, my body has adjusted well. There’s no mischief going on in there.
Stay tuned for Day 4…
