Raw Juice Guru Blogger Challenge – Post 2

I’m on juice #5 of the day and it’s 2:45pm so my usual “go get another tea” time. Overall I’m feeling pretty good. I have had to pee fairly often because I’m drinking juice and lots of water. I just got the first twinge of a headache, so hopefully it doesn’t turn into a full blown headache. I am craving a big, juicy, veggie burger and maybe some chocolate and almonds…

This is real juice though, no sugar added and you can literally taste all of the fruits & veggies it was made with. The taste was not at all what I expected, coming from drinking the “Fruit Smoothies” you get a the grocery store. I keep expecting a sweet, fruity drink but it’s very healthy tasting – not gross at all, just fresh and good for you 🙂

Here’s what I’ve had so far today:

Juice 1
Spinach, parsley, kale, lemon cucumber, apple, celery
Juice 2
Lemon, filtered water, cayenne pepper, raw coconut nectar
Juice 3
Wheatgrass, pineapple
Juice 4
Celery, carrot, lemon, ginger, beet, pear
Juice 5
Watermelon celery, lemon

Raw Juice Guru Blogger Challenge – Post 1

RawJuiceImageI was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the 7 Bloggers to participate in the Raw Juice Guru Blogger Challenge and this morning my first batch of Raw, Cold Pressed Juice from the Raw Juice Guru arrived. I’ve always wanted to do a cleanse of some sort, but have heard horror stories and watched friends go through awful, homemade lemon juice-maple syrup-cayenne pepper cleanses, so steered clear. I was really excited to be chosen as part of the 7 Bloggers doing the Raw Juice Cleanse and looking forward to the results.

So for the next 3 days I’m doing a “long weekend detox” which I’ve decided is the start of a healthier me! So follow along for my insights (good, bad and maybe some ugly) and I’ll make sure to overshare 🙂

Juice #1
Spinach, parsley, kale, lemon cucumber, apple, celery

I drank this while gettting ready for work.
An ok tasting juice. Very green and leafy and less sweet than other “green juices” I’ve tried.
I felt a little off in my stomach on the ride in and when I got in to work I was really hot and a bit sweaty. Not sure if it was just hot or me.
Felt good once I settled in and am ready to drink Juice 2
