My juicing diary! I am starting a months juicing program, following a Reboot Juice plan by Jo Cross, author of ‘Fat Sick and nearly Dead’.

Day #8

So since I last blogged, I’ve gone all juice – exciting!

I start my day with a hot water and lemon and/or ginger, then a juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with additional mid morning and afternoon juice snacks. Luckily for me, some of the recipes make more than one serving, otherwise it would feel like I spend most of my time juicing and cleaning the juicer.

So far so good!

Day #3

It’s been a bit disjointed today, I had to go out to buy some ingredients for my breakfast shake, by the time I got back it was almost lunch time – I’m not sure what has happened with my day today. So, I’m not really on schedule properly with my meal/snack/meal/snack regime.

I feel okay though. When I was making my juice this afternoon, I kept biting off bits of apple  – almost anticpating the lack of chewing coming in a few days time, I really ought to get over that! The only tricky bit at the moment is sharing a meal with my boyfriend, it feels very unsociable commiting to this juicing program.

Day #2

So the first day passed yesterday quietly without any drama’s.. As I’m in the early part of the program at the moment I’m mixing a few juices with solid foods, so I am enjoying ‘the chew’ whilst I still can. I think I start exclusively juicing on day 6.. I better make the most of solid foods whilst I can!
My afternoon snack today, lovely frothy juice; celery, cucumber and apple..

Juice Diary Day #1

May Bank Holiday Monday. I am committing myself to this blog, as I juice myself to better health and vitality.  Last summer I did the same Reboot 15 day juice plan (following Joe Cross’ amazing simple plans on www.rebootwithjoe.com) and whilst I found it  hard at the start, I felt amazing. So, I’m doing it again, though I hope that once the 15 days is up, I will continue a variation of the juicing for a further 2 weeks.

The Reebot Plan is a structured juicing plan that is free to download from Joe’s website.  There is a detailed timetable of meals, smoothies and juices with shopping lists too, which are all great for me as it means I really don’t have to think about it too much; except for where I might find enough Kale to sustain me!

Why am I juicing? As the plan suggests, this is my reboot. It is very easy to slip into unhealthy eating habits, and as a lifetime vegetarian and with a good knowledge of healthy eating and nutrition through my work as a Kinesiologist, I still am no different to anybody else out there. I love to comfort eat  – when I am [...]
