So I decided to begin 2020 with a juice fast.
I put on extra kilos last year & have been feeling tired & achy, even waking up tired!
I want to start 2020 with a clear mind & a clean body. I feel that this process needs a sense of mindfulness & slowing down. A wonderful way to begin this decade.
I have always known how wonderful juicing can be for your health & your mind. My sister has had a cold compress juicer for over 10 years & juices every morning. So, it has been on my radar.
Recently my beautiful best friend Laura bought a juicer, she is SO GOOD at doing research so I was a copy cat & bought the same one as her...thank you Laura!!
(By the way, neither Laura or I are affiliated with Kuvings or Julianne Dowse)
To prepare I started having a juice once a day about 2 weeks before day 1. One week before I upped it to 2 juices a day & had a light dinner (I am vegetarian) I also stopped having my morning coffee, replacing it with a herbal tea.
Day 1 was January 1st 2020.
I am following a juice plan by Julianne Dowse free from her website here https://www.afoodiesguide.com.au/
There is also a fabulous shopping list for the whole 7 days, makes it easy to shop
Today is day 2 & all the juices I have had so far are really yummy! Combining fresh fruits, herbs & vegies in great combinations.
I felt really good this morning, much better than I expected from all the reading I have done. Most say day 1-3 are challenging. Flu like symptoms, headaches etc.
I think perhaps my daily meditation practice of 45 minutes supports me well here to.
I have been for a great walk at St Andrews beach today with Brian which helped to clear my lungs warm my skin & feel so grateful to be alive!
Now I have a vague headache & feel a little tired....an early night for me I am sure!
I wanted to share some photos with you. One of the amazing colours produced from all the healthy yummy fruit & veg.
And beautiful St Andrews Beach all to ourselves!
I look forward to sharing more of my 7 day juice fast with you!
