Last week I joined a friend and went on a “Spring Clean” juicing week. For 7 days I did it! The first few were hard. The best way to describe how I felt was blue. I wasn’t really hungry, and I didn’t really have horrible cravings, I just wanted to eat. I had lost a favorite thing, and I missed it. Eventually that went away, and I felt great! Fantastic is a good word to describe it. James kept looking at me and commenting on how I was glowing:) He’s just a nice guy, but really my skin did look so pretty. To be honest I didn’t loose any weight, but I would do it again in a heartbeat for how it felt. You felt clean, and I was still able to keep running and do everything I usually do. Thanks to my friend Kristie for challenging me, and many others. Here’s a link to her website. (She actually just started a 30 day RAW challenge if you’re interested.)
Every morning I started with this Lemonade. Actually I still make it most mornings because I love it! If you google benefits of Lemon Water there are a ton. I’m no expert, so I won’t tout any great benefits other than it’s such a nice way to start the day. Don’t worry if you don’t have a juicer. Just do your best to squeeze all the love out of that lemon and orange and you’ll be just fine. I like to use warm water when I make this, but ice cold would be great too.
