Another successful day nearly over! Had three delicious juices today and admittedly feeling quite full just now after my dinner. Morning started in a somewhat rush as grating and juicing by hand takes significantly longer time than with a ย juicer, thus I had to be quick to get up and get ready for the day for I went to the local TEDx conference (which was amazing, by the way haha).

Breakfast:

2 beetroots
5 small carrots
2 lemons
3 oranges
bit of a ginger

It was so delicious I had to keep myself from drinking it all at once and save some for having on the go (but regardless finished with it with 30 minutes afterwards…). So a classic recipe forming here as I see ๐Ÿ˜›

Lunch:

Unfortunately I have no photo of it as I ran down to Bon Accord centre to get a juice from the Fuel juice bar there, but it was damn delicious that I drank it within two minutes or so, but can share the ingredients list with yous:

pineapple & apples juiced
strawberries, blueberries, raspberries and blackberries as well, I think – blended with the juice. I’m not sure how good a juice the berries would make so I was okay with them being blended in it, but I guess that would somewhat count as eating for it undeniably contained fibre. But it was indeed lovely to have a bit of a sweeter juice for a change! ๐Ÿ˜›

Dinner:

ImageAs you can see I shared this with my housemate ๐Ÿ˜› Because my new juicer arrived!!!!!!!!!! Happydanceeee! It’s quite big but seems like a bit longer-lasting than the previous one plus has a warranty so I should be safe, for now ๐Ÿ˜€ย 

1 lemon (with peel)
tons of spinach (I used 5-6 very thickly packed handfuls)
3 sticks of celery
2 pears
2 apples
2cm nob of ginger

I have to say that this juicer does let through quite a lot of the spinach pieces unlike the previous one, but man, that was DElicious! I am feeling quite full now ๐Ÿ˜› And the lemon with peel gives it very strong flavour so that I could not detect a piece of celery in it. And the amount made tons, we both had second helpings in the glasses you see on the photo ๐Ÿ˜›

So still – no solid food as such (except the berries and whatever residue escapes the juicer’s filter), feeling great, feeling amazing, feeling aliiiiive! Yesterday night at work was a bit tiring half-way through but in the end got my energy back again so I have not noticed any downsides of this juicing fast. ๐Ÿ™‚ Life’s gooooooood! x
