We thoroughly enjoyed our Super Bowl Sunday this year…was our last feast before our veggie fast.  Every combination of homemade guacamole you could think of, chicken wings, chicken nuggets (yes…straight from Mickey D’s- thanks Danie!), meatballs, chips of all kinds, chili served on corn waffles and of course freshly juiced Bloody Mary’s for all :0) … this was Mark’s treat!

5 full days of juicing is our goal!

What inspired us was the documentary “Fat, sick and nearly dead” — so the next day we went out and bought a Jack LaLanne juicer from Macy’s (they just happened to be having a HUGE sale on all their Juicers).  Last week we dabble with different combination- Mark and I had our usual competition- and now we are on day 2 of juicing.

Due to our morning schedules, it is hard to put aside time to juice for the entire day for two people so I have been juicing in the evening.  Last night, I made:

Green Juice

  • 2 cucumbers
  • 1 handfull of parsley
  • 3 handfulls of fresh spinach
  • 1 lemon
  • 3 celery sticks
  • 1″ piece of ginger root
  • 2 green apples
Green Juice, Orange Glow Juice, Red Juice

Green Juice, Orange Glow Juice, Red Juice

Orange Glow Juice

  • 7 carrots
  • 2 oranges (peeled)
  • 1/2 grapefruit (peeled)
  • 12 strawberries
  • 1″ piece of ginger root

Red Juice

  • 1 beet
  • 1/2 grapefruit (peeled)
  • 1 orange (Peeled)
  • 3 carrots
  • 1″ piece of ginger root

Bottoms up!  Will keep you posted on our progress…and if anyone sees Mark eating a PB&J sandwich at lunch, feel free to tattle :0)
