Juice Cleanse Day 1
It has begun.
The first day of my 30 day juice cleanse is underway as I drink smoothie numero uno as I type this post.
I was supposed to have started on the 2nd but had a mishap that didn't allow that so instead of rushing I committed to start before the 10th, so here we are Jan 8th, officially Day 1.
I'm "eating" a little late, so even though its noon its officially breakfast. I really don't like to eat until I've had 2 bottles of water and my ginger tea...so since I got a late start on that everything was pushed back. I'll do better tomorrow, promise :-)
In the fridge is a big 'ole carton of spinach and not much else. I have apples, but since I don't have a juicer yet that won't do any good in the blender. I did also find a few blackberries, a kiwi and some banana's which I used to make my smoothie today. A big improvisation that paid off, because this smoothie is delish!
Kiwi-Banana-Blackberry and Spinanch Smoothie
-Half a banana cut
-2-3 handfuls of spinach
-5 ice cubes
Blend until there are no chucks but just a smoothie puree. The coldness of the ice really adds a nice umpf to it. This made one glass, about 6 oz so if you want more be sure to use more fruit and spinach.
I may just have a straight green smoothie for lunch and I'll head to the store later for more fruit. I am excited and looking forward to this adventure!
