Juicing!

We started juicing on Saturday. Never one to eat my vegetables, I was extremely skeptical. Drinking only juice for 3 days seemed not only tough, but impossible to me, since I have derby practice for 2 hours most nights of the week.

The first day wasn’t too bad – we drank hot water with lemon in the morning and drank about 5 different juices throughout the day.

The next day was awful. I swear I was hallucinating at some point. All I could think about was food. I tried to focus on the health benefits, but it was really not helping much at all.

Later that night, I had derby practice, and knew I wasn’t going to be able to skate without some energy to help me. I was afraid I would pass out on the rink, so I stopped for some chicken nuggets on the way there. After that, I felt awesome. I mean, who doesn’t feel awesome after eating chicken nuggets?

On the third day, I went back to juicing, but was extremely hungry again by the evening. All in all, it wasn’t a bad idea, but just not very doable for an active lifestyle. We now try to juice at least 1x a day in order to get the extra nutrients that don’t fit into our daily meals.

As an added bonus, we get extra compost to use for the garden this year!
