Tomorrow is the big day.
THE BIG DAY!
Yes, I am getting a juicer! Someone is graciously blessing me with a juicer. I am so grateful for this special person and her generosity. I have been avidly researching juice recipes. Making my grocery list of vegetables and fruits. I am told juicing is quite pricy, so my plan is to start off by doing only two juices a day. I plan to eat salads and fruit while juicing.
Ever since I watched “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”, I have been more aware about what I eat and what I feed my family. I started off wanting to juice to lose weight, (don’t get me wrong, I still am expecting to lose weight) but now it’s more than that. Now I want to do it so I’ll sleep better, have more energy and a healthier digestive tract…I know TMI, but we all deal with it, don’t we?
So what’s my grocery list look like? Everything green!
1 bunch of Broccoli
1 Romaine lettuce
1 Swiss chard
4 bags of Carrots
Ginger (a good size one since its used in lot’s of my juices)
7-10 Green apples (whatever the special is)
Red delicious apples (I won’t get to many of these since they are high in sugar)
Lemons (depends on the special)
I have a feeling my grocery list will be adjusted between now and tomorrow, depending on the recipes I find.
I would like to make a note… Apples and strawberries are the two fruits that are recommended to buy organic. They are highly sprayed with pesticides. Because I am on a tight budget, I don’t plan to buy all my produce organic, however, apples I will try to strictly buy organic.
Since I am aiming to lose weight, I will be posting weekly updates on pounds lost along with an occasional photo or two. I also plan to give daily updates on my juicing experience. I’ll share my thoughts, recommendations, struggles, fears and tears throughout my journey.
Until next time,
