Juicing for breakfast and lunch: Recipe day 2

Carrot, apple, pineapple juice.
Day 1 went well, it went really well. I had green juice for breakfast, a plain earl grey tea, and green juice again for lunch, with tons of water in-between. By the time I got home and felt like I was starving, I sat down for a pretty reasonable dinner. It felt like my stomach had kind of shrunk during the day, so I really wasn't able to over stuff myself like I tend to (love to) do. 

Whether it was from the nutrients in the juice, or the water that I was finally drinking enough of, I felt really energetic and productive all day.

Day 2 is starting great. For once I woke up and just got up. To be fair I don't really think that had a lot to do with juicing, I think it had more to do with the fact that I drank a coffee at like 7PM and I'm a complete child when it comes to caffeine after 1. Either way it feels good. And it's Friday. The real challenge will be if I can continue to have just juice for breakfast and lunch over the weekend. Social pressure is a bitch.

Day 2 Juice Recipe:
  • 8 organic carrots
  • 1 large organic apple
  • 1/3 fresh cut pineapple
Do you know how to tell if a pineapple is going to be sweet? Pick the pineapple that has the most yellow or gold skin and smell the bottom - a ripe pineapple will smell really sweet!

Coffee's good anytime though :)

No. 7PM. My husband was very sweet and surprised me with a latte on the counter when I got home from work. It tasted great, but kicked in around 2AM, and seemed to take full effect around 5AM somehow.

Anything that makes you feel energetic and productive all day has to be a good thing.
