A little over a month since I started juicing and I can't imagine ever giving it up! I love experimenting with different veggies and fruits. a couple of really good successes, but still a stinker or two (Just threw out 2 jars of cabbage based juice that took nasty to a whole new level!) Most day I am doing juice until supper which is vegetables and a protein. My 13 hour days at work have not been a problem and replacing the coffee in my travel mug with green juice has actually given me more stamina. More rewarding is that a couple of others nurses and a CNA are also bringing juices now. Juice on!
Day # 9 of my 5 day juice reboot. I guess I will keep adding days and see where this goes.Mostly sort of following recipes, tried adding collards greens to Mean Green and ended up more bitter. Will hopefully come up with more, but there are already so many established recipes to try, these were spur of the moment.
PIZZA JUICE is savory: 1 pound tomatoes, 2 stalks celery, 2 carrots, 1/4 onion, 2 cloves garlic, handful of basil and 6 sprigs oregano.
PEAS SOUP juice is light, sweet, and tastes of spring: 1/2 pound snap peas, small head of romaine (cos) lettuce, 2 pears, 1 lemon and 8-10 mint leaves.
Thought for the day (#8): We are all human and life is a journey of acquiring knowledge. Change is possible, but we did not get to the point we are by being perfect. All we can do is try. I didn't get to my day 1 state overnight. It is going to take me a while to get where I am going, but every juice I drink, every healthy choice I make is another step forward on the path to where I want to be. If I take a step off the path, it is OK, because I know my way back now.

Anyone that is just starting up. We can trade tips, tricks, gripes. We can complain to each other about how hungry we are and then motivate each other to keep going.
