    Hi everyone here. I am new to this group. Ended my reboot yesterday after 22 days of juicing. I posted much of my posts during my reboot on my profile if anyone is curious.



    I drink juice morning and lunch and make a light meal for supper. First day I had the tomatosoup w. baked tomatos and garlic from the recipe section on this site. Uhm I so loved to have baked garlic. Today I made a indian dish with quino (instead of rice), split mung beans and vegetables. Both suppers were very good and have been tolerated fine by my body.



    I am eating only ½ a serving, then my body had had enough and I am able to listen! That is a big win for me to stop when full. Also I chew my food a lot better than before my reboot.



    Looking foreward to being a part of this group and learn from your experiences for past rebooting.



    love, Dorthe

    tastes so good it HAS to be fattening ..



    my daughter taught me this trick; i call it banana ice cream because if you get it right, it is remarkably reminiscent of banana ice cream in taste, temperature, and texture ...



    take VERY ripe bananas, peel, put in some sort of bowl or container and put in freezer. cut away any discoloured portions if you have any picky eaters in the house.



    remove desired quantity of frozen bananas from freezer and thaw for about 10 minutes...this is the crucial part, if you don't wait long enough they are too hard and you wait too long they are mushy ... you could set a timer and make note so that you can fine-tune the timing, but 10 minutes seems to be about right for me.



    healthy and delicious, you can serve this to your kids with no worry about added sugar, hydrolyzed whatsit or polysorbate whatever !



    p.s. ... although i haven't tried this, it occurs to me that you could mash or blenderize this to give it a more authentic ice-cream look !



    p.p.s ... sprinkle with cinnamon ... nuts ... cocoa powder ... ???

    My toddler loves bananas anyway. I will definately do this for him. Especially with the upcoming hot months. Thx!

    Joe, you inspired me to look into diary free/sugar free ice cream recipes. I found a good resource:

    Now summer just needs to get here....

    I agree with Holly, I would be so more into icecream if it wasn't still 20*F outside. Spring where are you?

    Sounds very yummy! Will def. try! Also a nice treat, healthy and low in calories: chia-pudding. As I'm slowly introducing food back into my diet, I at this point only replace the afternoon snack. This has about 200 calories with coconut flakes. My stomack likes it and chia seeds are very healthy anyway. In a small bowl combine 2tbsp chia seeds, a lil less than 1 cup almond milk (Ilike mine slightly sweetend) and tbsp coconut flakes. Place in fridge for the night. The next day you have the perfect pudding. Add some fruits if you like.

    So what did everyone make this weekend? I am finding that weekends are big cooking time for me if I'm going to be able to eat well during the week. I made a big Costco trip and bought a bunch of fruits and veggies and some tofu. I walked out feeling very good about myself. I do this "big trip" about once a week. Last week my boyfriend came with me and he was like, "Your eyes are too big for your stomach. We don't need all this. It's going to go bad." Well, he was wrong and I bought more stuff this week. I go to a big box store every week, am able to buy fresh food at low prices, and actually consume it all! I finally caved and bought protein powder because after a month of eating mostly fruits and veggies and working out a lot...I was starting to get tired in the middle of the day which is not acceptable.



    This weekend was my friend's annual St Patty's day part with corn beef and cabbage featured. I brought a potato leek soup for myself. It was amazing! All my friends enjoyed it too. It made a perfect potato gravy for the beef. While all my friends enjoyed a chocolate Guinness cake for dessert, I had an apple pie juice. Everyone raved about the cake but almost no one finished a whole slice.



    Sunday, we made another zucchini lasagna with tofu ricotta because I realized that we only used half the tomato sauce we made last week and we had all the ingredients to make another one. We also took my boyfriend's nephews (they are 3 and 4) to the science center. So much work having kids! We were so tired by the time we got home. My boyfriend and I figured out we are spending about an hour per day in the kitchen cooking/juicing in order to be healthy and I am also spending about that much time at the gym. It's no wonder it's so hard to be working, have kids, and be healthy. It's almost like a person can only pick 2 out of 3 because they are all very demanding on your time (and rewarding.)

    Hi guys great group I started a similar group a while back when I was finishing my reboot. After heaps of research I decided to start my own site. There is heaps of information about what to do after a reboot and ideas about making the transformation. check it out www.juiceandfeast.com

    Hello. I'm still juicing (day8), but I can't help but to start thinking what will be next. I'm afraid of the yo-yo effect. I would love to hear your thoughts. Is there anyone post reboot for a longer period of time already?

  • smokeless joe

    i would also love to hear from those with longer post-reboot experience. i have been on solid food for almost 3 weeks and have gained back about 6 lbs. of the 40lbs. that i lost.

    since a 5lb. rebound is pretty common i am not too worried. my biggest concern is that, even though i eat VERY healthy (with just a few exceptions) i have slipped back into my old habit of late night eating when not really hungry, just bored.

  • YpsCologne

    For how long did you do the juice fast? 40lbs is a lot. Late night eating is one of my old habits too. I do hope it ain't coming back. I guess it will be an everyday struggle.

  • smokeless joe

    hi, yps ... i did 2 separate juice-only fasts ... 1st one was 23 days, 2nd was 22 days, with 10 days between them of (mostly) healthy eating. plus a lead-in of 2 or 3 days before the first one.

    it has now been 18 days since i ended my last juice-fast and i have gained back about 6 lbs. tomorrow i am starting 10 days of juicing and eating only fresh, raw fruits/veg. no salt, no oil.

    the late night eating is a problem but also i have really slacked off on having at least 1 juice a day and drinking adequate water. i need to really focus on those two things.

    But ther must be a way to handle the weight after the reboot. Don't you think? As much as I love all the yummy juices I can't imagine to go on and off juice fasting. I hope sport will do the trick. I'm not doing any sports right now during the rebbot (I only walk home every day 2.5miles from work). After the reboot I plan on doing lot's of sports. Also during my reboot I do something that's not in the rules, but I'm still loosing weight. Every day I replace my afternnoon juice with a poached egg or half a small avocado. (egg or avocado squidged to a mash and spiced with turmeric powder and black pepper) I do hope that although it means it takes longer to loose weight it will help me afterwards. I lost 8lbs in my 11days which I think is not bad considering I was 150lbs before I started. Also I once in a while eat some peanuts. I don't have any cravings and it's even fine with me to sit beside people eating a full meal.

    i am with you ... i don't intend to go on and off juice-fasting every time i gain some weight. my plan is to NOT regain the weight in the first place, but rather to get to what i think is my correct weight and keep within 5 lbs. or so either way (christmas/thanksgiving/birthdays are a fact of life).

    i really believe that not drinking enough water and not having 1 juice everyday was a mistake. also, while my late night eating has been entirely healthy food, i had simply been doing too much of it. old habits die hard. i am learning though, and knowledge is power.

    as for doing stuff that is not strictly 'within the rules', i think that everyone has to find what works for them. my own juice-fasts weren't 100% correct (i was close though) but it worked, the weight came off pretty rapidly and i have no regrets about it. your eggs, avocados and nuts are high-calorie foods but they are also very nutrient rich. your consumption of them will slow weight loss somewhat, but 8lbs. in 11 days is not bad at all and if it keeps you moving forward then you are on the right track.

    Day 3 of my transition back to real food. I made some granola bars and had one today, it was the first "sweet" food I had since juicing, they were very tasty!! I'm still juicing 2 times a day - nothing beats the Mean Green Juice - I just love it, so fresh, light and delicious!

  • smokeless joe

    i am a mean green fan too. i thought it looked like poison the first time i made it, but was pleasantly surprised by the taste, and it has remained of of my top 3 juices. welcome back to the world of eating !

    Hi everyone! I completed a 30 day juice fast yesterday (lost 20 pounds) and today I had my first meal. I was craving pizza so much my last week of juicing so I went and had a small salad with ranch dressing and a mini pizza with olives for lunch today. It all tasted divine but about 4 hours later I was in the bathroom hating life lol I plan on continuing to juice 2 to 3 times a day and eating a meal of mostly WFPB. I hope my stomach will be able to hand the daily meal I plan on eating. Anyone else have problems with their meal after juicing?

    Hubby is fine as long as he sticks to WFPB but as soon as he has a 'cheat meal' he pays for it the next day. His IBS acts up and he spends twice as much time in the bathroom.

    30 days- congratulations!! Work your way back in slowly, your digestive tract needs to get use to doing its job. Hope you are feeling better

  • smokeless joe

    i have read so many times about people needing to take it easy when transitioning back to solid food. not me, i could have digested a pine tree ... i have always had a cast iron stomach.

    big congrats on completing your 30 day juice fast !

    I craved pizza too and my husband and I were traveling I had planned to juice but a car problem caused us to arrive late and so we stopped for pizza. It smelled wonderful but didn't taste as good as i expected it too!

    nini ... i found it somewhere on the internet, but no idea where. going from memory its ...



    1 tbsp honey



    1 tbsp oil



    2 tbsp dijon mustard.



    from there you can add just about anything you like, or nothing at all. i go a little lighter on the oil because of the calories. if i am not adding anything else i just soften the honey in microwave and mix with a spoon, but usually i add some red onion and garlic and just do the whole thing in the blender. enjoy .

    Well, we went out to dinner tonight and I had a lovely Citrus salad. It was made with romaine lettuce, spinach and topped with diced pears, strawberries, apples and melon. the dressing was a citrus vinaigrette which I had on the side. Though the salad was not large I still could not finish it. This would be easy to recreate at home! Oh I drank Pellegrini going to make my tea now!

    been trying some new stuff in the kitchen ... the lemon herb green beans turned out quite good; definitely becoming a part of my kitchen repertoire. same with sweet potato "fries". also been trying homemade salad dressings, my favourite so far is a honey/mustard concoction which can be easily customized with garlic, minced onion, or whatever strikes your fancy ... these consistently turn out way better than store-bought and have way less oil and salt !

    Hi, where did you find the recipe for the honey mustard dressing? I'd like to try it.
