It’s almost been a full week since I started the Juice Cleanse! I’ve had the weirdest craving to eat a whole tub of peanut butter and a whole tube of Sour Cream and Onion Pringles, it’s strange because I don’t even like Pringles! I had the hardest time falling asleep last night because of this. I Googled “Food Cravings and what they mean” but all I could find is that I need to eat more fish, nuts, and calorie rich foods. I can definitely understand the calorie rich food. I’m having a really tough time with my Juice Fast. I try to drink as much as juice as I can, but sometimes I don’t have the energy to make one. In the mean time my head is dizzy, and sometimes I see black dots. That’s my warning sign to shape up, and make a juice! As I mentioned in my post yesterday, when I drink a juice with a high fruit percentage I have a spike of energy, during this spike I’ll either try to exercise or my house is falling into chaos, so I try to clean as much as possible. Then I just want to sleep. I sit now way more than I did before, and I lounge because I have no energy. It gets overwhelming and frustrating sometimes worrying that you’re not getting the nutrients you need, and seeing that your house is a mess but all you can do is stare at it with a blank stare.
For breakfast this morning, I made an Orange and Mango juice, which was fantastic!
- three oranges (peeled)
- three mangoes (peeled, pit removed)
When I made this this morning, I only used one of each, and it hardly made anything, so I’ll use three of each when I make it again. Mister and I also juiced a grapefruit + two red apples. We added unflavored seltzer water to the juice, and it was a little bitter, but refreshing. I just learned that seltzer water is nothing more than carbonized water. I have always figured it was full of terrible ingredients for you, similar to soda pop.
For lunch I made the Green Lemonade found on rebootwithjoe.com, but don’t be fooled, it doesn’t taste like lemonade whatsoever. >.< Just because something has half a lemon in it, that does not make it lemonade. It’s still just a green juice through and through, much to my disappointment. lol
