Okay, so I felt I needed a change and I decided to start juicing this week. I don’t agree to excessive juicing or surviving only on veggie and fruit juice as this can actually put too much fruit sugar in your system at once. But a glass or two a day could only benefit me, especially on the days I am too busy or lazy to eat my fruit.
Today I was reading this detox book and since I had most of the ingredients mentioned there I decided to put them in the blender. I used beetroot, two small pears, an apple and half a banana. I added ginger juice(kindly provided by a good friend), wheat grass powder, spirulina powder, half a teaspoon of my immuno-build green powder(it contains stevia and I find adding more than half a teaspoon sickening) and a handful of fresh basil leaves. Hey, pronto, the result was an energising, tangy and refreshing drink I drowned in the blink of an eye!
Well, this is day 24 of my 40 day healthy living challenge, have a great week and take my dare to try at least one new food this week! Talk tomorrow.
