juice fast journal: day 6

Drew Canole Juice Recipes from Fitlife

Well, it’s 7:30am on day 7 but I don’t want to skip any days  in my juice fast journal, so here goes…

Yesterday (Saturday) started off fantastically – I had a bit of a sleep in, did my oil pulling, had my lemon water, and created a new Pineapple-Grapefruit juice recipe. I had lots of energy and got a lot done around the house… as much as I should have gone for a run!

Strawberry Greens Juice

I’m trying very hard to mix up my vegetables on my seven day juice fast – I could have three liters of juice with 6lbs of carrots a day if I’m not careful… I don’t want to turn orange : )

Day 5 Juice Haul

Eeek! I was in a bit of a funk today, which was a little extra depressing given the last four days have been so wonderful. However, it’s reassuring to know that the juice fast wasn’t giving me any crazy kind of superpowers that resulted in all that energy I had : )

beet juice


If you read my Day 3 juice fast journal, you’ll know that my beet juice caused quite the bathroom commotion, but despite that, I really did like the concoction – sweet but not overwhelming, and damn full of goodness for your body… and who doesn’t love goodness for their body?!

juice fast journal: day 4

Day 4 River Run

Well, it’s official… I made it through day 4! My longest juice fast ever. Actually, I think I achieved that last night but tonight it feels more definite. So much happened today I’m not sure where to start, so perhaps in typical journal style, I’ll start at the beginning…

Beet + Stem Juice

Well… you really don’t want a photo of my experience today. Let’s just say that I hit the ‘cleanse’ part of this little juice fast and it wasn’t (isn’t) pretty; however healthy it may be. The funny thing is that it caught me totally by surprise. Colon cleanses come with instructions to ‘stay at home on day 4’ but the juice fast didn’t come with such instruction. I hadn’t had so much success with previous juice fasts as to experience this before but guess I should be happy I’m getting it (quite literally) “out of the way” early on : S

Day 2 Pond Run

Usually by day 2 of a juice fast  (yes, only day 2), I really struggle with cravings for FOOD! Not this time though, I was entirely content with my juice all day – I’m so excited : )

virgin mary juice

Virgin Mary_2

I have always hated tomato juice, despite being a bartender for more years and making more bloody mary’s than I care to remember… all with good reviews. Well, always, until March this year when my boyfriend made me a bloody mary on our trip to Puerto Rico. I fell in love!

TT Online Juice Fast August 2013

Tyler Tolman’s online juice fast started on August 1 and I’m totally hooked! As mentioned in my c.a.s.s. juice post last week, I had a day of juice on the official first day but took Friday through Sunday off to go to Osheaga music festival in Montreal… and while I missed my juice, it was totally worth it! A fab three days with great music, great company, and luckily for me, great gluten-free vegan Thai food : )

CASS Juice_2

T minus 3… first day of Tyler Tolman’s online juice fast!  It’s T-3 as I’m starting today but taking Friday – Sunday off because I’m going away for the weekend and music festivals are hardly conducive to juice fasting… they barely let you bring water in with you : )

‘bucha baby!

First Batch of 'Buch! 1

I have been so excited…  three weeks after hiding my first batch of kombucha in a dark cupboard I can finally unveil it!  In addition to excited, I was very. very nervous. What if I messed up the preparation? What if I didn’t steep the tea for long enough? What if it tasted awful? What if it got contaminated? What if it fell off the shelf… all by itself?!?
