Day 1

Yesterday was day one of our juice fast. We did great! Our energy levels were  low by the end of the day. The last thing I remember was that it was 7:30 pm and the girls were asleep in bed, then I was waking up on the couch with Charles and it was midnight. We both went to bed and decided to post in the morning. I have been adding ice to my juice and it is nice to have it colder. We had a yummy green juice yesterday that was:
4 Handfuls of baby spinach
4 Carrots
1 Tomato
¼ Cucumber
1 Stalk of celery
1 Granny smith apple
1 Small chunk of ginger
We had my grandparents over yesterday and they thought it tasted terrible! I guess we are just used to the green juices now. Charles really struggled with no solids yesterday. He stayed away from all the food preparations. Today we are ready for day two of juicing, thanks for your support!


  1. Hi Team Ruley, I hope Day 2 gets easier for you both! My wife and I just picked up our juicer and some supplies and had our first juice today. We needed to seriously adjust the recipe as it was

    2 Large Granny Smith apples
    3 Radishes
    1 Cucumber

    I have to admit that I had to plug my nose to get it down. Unfortunately though, it didn't want to stay down; this earthy stuff is going to take some getting used to.

    We are in it and committed though; this is our T - week where we are adjusting our habits and bodies. The next juice we have, we will have to ensure we follow a real recipe though.

    Hang in there and keep us posted!

    1. Every person has a different taste preference. I would recommend just playing around with your recipes! Thanks for sharing this journey with us.

  2. Hi! Just found your blog, so great to know you are going through with this life-changing experience! I can't wait to see your progress, and feel free to contact me any time with questions! :-)
