Juice Fast #2 - DAY THREE

Today was Meili's first Halloween, which is a post in itself, but unfortunately I can't write about it because getting four kids ready for trick-or-treating (by myself since Jon was busy) proved to be quite an undertaking. The house was left in total chaos with food particles, random costume pieces and homework papers strewn all over the place. Only JUST now (11:02PM) did I manage to get everything back to a semi-organized status. I'm just going to give a quick update for those of you who are following this juice fast.

Amazingly, we both felt great again today. We are just totally surprised at how hungry we haven't been. Not even a single tummy growl! Tonight I smelled chili at church and it was really the first time I actually had a thought about wanting to eat something, but it was short lived and went away as quickly as it came. We both went non-stop all day today from about 6:20 this morning and had more than enough energy to make it through.

Breakfast was Parsley Energy:
1 bunch of parsley
5 carrots
1 apple
2 sticks of celery

It was a nasty greenish-brown color, but tasted fabulous. Anything with parsley in it is usually good.

We were both at work during lunch so right at 4:00 we had Sweet Broccoli:
2 heads of broccoli
2 stalks of celery
2 apples

Broccoli juice is amazingly sweet and refreshing, so this was almost a treat. The rest of the night we were too busy with our munchkins to drink anything so we really didn't meet our quota for today at all. Hopefully tomorrow will be better. I also didn't drink near enough water today, so I need to up my H2O consumption tomorrow too. Water really helps flush out the toxins as your body moves into detox mode.

Anyone ready to jump on the bandwagon with us yet?? ;)


  1. Virginia, what type of juicer do you have?

    1. We have an Omega 8006. I added a little blurb about it on today's post since several people have asked about it :)
