3 Day Fast: Juicing Cleanse

I wrote a while back about trying juicing. I’ve been making a lot of my own juices lately tomato, carrot, apple and celery… it’s been fun. I was talking with a colleague about a 3 day juice fast she did that she said gave her a ton of energy! I decided to try it and placed my order for the 3 day cleanse called Blueprint. It includes 6 bottles of juice a day to drink. It arrived and I refrigerated it right away. Every day I’m gonna keep a log of how it’s going:

DAY 1: I woke up and had a bottle of hot water with lemon in it to clear my system. It’s what Blueprint recommends. About an hour later I tried Juice #1. It’s a green juice with romaine, celery, cucumber, apple, spinach, kale, parsley and lemon. If you are not use to a green juice.. the taste will raise a brow and tickle your tastebuds. It’s a little tart with a greeny after taste. I admit I downed it fast to get it over with. My friend Lauren says it will get better.. you get use to it.

I went to work out and found I still had enough energy. During the workout I drank Juice #2 a pineapple and apple concoction. It was good and got me through the session. Around 5pm I started to long some solids. I had my spicy lemonade which has cayenne pepper in it. HELLO. It’s unlike any lemonade I’ve had. It was good though. I liked the burn.

So the one thing Blueprint has is a card for cheaters. It lists the things you CAN cheat with if you find yourself famished. Some of the items include a couple slices of cucumber, 1/4 of an avocado and low sodium chicken broth. I had the avocado and chicken broth. If you’re gonna cheat they say at least cheat with good stuff.

Everyone says by the time you get to your final juice of the day… a cashew milk you will say it all was worth it. I’m on Juice #5 right now and can’t wait to 6 in an hour or so. You’re suppose to give at least 1 hour between juices. Getting me by in between today… water, hot green tea and hot water with lemon.

No headaches so far…
