Reboot Day 2

My big jug of juice for today:  spinach, carrots, 4 big beets, lemon, ginger, broccoli, and apples.  My hubby and I started out with a morning smoothie of organic berries, avocado, spinach, agave, cinnamon, and coconut milk.  The rest of today has been lemon water and this juice.

The beets give it a gorgeous color.  Well that is a matter of opinion, because the people younger than me eating out of my refrigerator think it looks SCARY.  The same people that will eat anything that color if it comes in a bear shape out of a candy package.  Choosing the veggie juicing diet over the Twinkies diet cuts way down on fighting over food in the kitchen.

It feels really good to have 2 successful days behind me.  I read this article written by Joe Cross (the man from the movie I blogged about), and he said he lost 100 pounds in 130 days.  He juiced the first 60 days and ate veggies, fruit, legumes, and nuts the next 70 days.  He not only lost weight but the healthy eating cured a skin disease he had.  It is an amazing story.  I hope each time I spend several weeks eating fruits and veggies it strengthens my healthy eating desires and habits, so that maybe someday I will eat well more than I eat poorly.
