So last Tuesday was an exciting day. My juicer was delivered to work.
On my way home I stopped to buy a fresh and bountiful supply of fruit and vegetables. I got home, washed all the produce and put it all away. I have bought a combination of organic and non organic vegetables. I use an organic fruit and vegetable wash to help rid the produce of pesticides, bacteria and general germs.
Now, to the exciting part – unpacking the juicer. It was really easy to set up and go through the instructions to understand how to use it. Now what to make? I made an Apple, Orange and Watermelon combination that was absolutely to die for. I shared some with my daughter and she loved it.
Over the last few days I’ve been making lots of different juices. I’ve been trying to stick to juices of 80% Vegetables and 20% Juice, though have had to add a little extra fruit to the green juices. I expect that over time my taste buds will get used to having the vegetable juices and won’t need to add as much fruit. I find it most convenient to juice each night and refrigerate for the next day in jars. I have an ice pack and cooler to transport my juice to work.
I’ve discovered a lot of information at Joe’s website and downloaded his 15 day reboot plan. This plan contains a plan for a 5 day preparation programme, followed by a 10 day reboot. I plan to follow this and do the 10 day reboot, though I would like to keep going to 30 or even 60 days.
I have also joined the most fantastic and supportive Facebook Group. This is something I would absolutely recommend. Align yourself with others who are on a similar journey to yours. The wealth of knowledge and support you gain is priceless.
On Friday I consumed my last coffee – and yes I enjoyed it. I gave myself the weekend to have one last little splurge, though didn’t overdo it. I continued to have my daily juice.
I went through the reboot plan again on Sunday to familiarize myself for the upcoming week. I also organised my breakfast, lunch and juices for the following day so they’d be all ready to go.
I went to bed happy.
