juice fast journal: day 7

I made it!! This is the last day of my seven day, Tyler Tolman online juice fast – I can’t really believe it! Firstly, I need to send out a huge thank you to the 1,100-odd members of the Facebook community that provided overwhelming…

pineapple-grapefruit juice

This juice was a bit of an evolutionary process. I had a grapefruit I needed to use and was running low on fresh produce so I started adding in things a little randomly. I had added all the ingredients below except the pineapple and…

juice fast journal: day 6

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,…

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…

juice fast journal: day 2

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

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…
