Juice Diary : Day 1

So it is a new week and the sun has found its way back to the south of Germany but that isn’t the only thing happening this week because this is also my first day of my 5 (alternatively 10) days juice reboot! I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am about this, I just hope that I will be able to do it as well. From what I have read the first 3-4 days are horrible and I can believe it, but after you have managed to push through the first days everything should be rather smooth sailing. I just hope that I will make it past the first day or well honestly, I dread tomorrow the most because I think that day two will be the day when my body truly will start to protest and be like “hey what a minute…where’s the food eh?” and as much as I would love to believe that it wont be a problem whatsoever I am pretty convinced it will be opposite. Anyway, everyone is different and I will simply have to wait and see in what manner my body will react, there is not much else I can do. Exciting though, is it not?

I started my day with an “orange” juice (orange in this case does not mean that there are actual oranges in it, its simply referring to its colour!) containing two applesone lemon and three carrots – depending on the size of the fruit/vegetable you will of course get more or less juice, I try to go for somewhere between 450 ml – 600 ml per serving. My glass in the picture is about 500 ml, which I think is a decent amount of juice in one sitting.

Since the green juice is recommended two times per day, I decided to make for both lunch and dinner at once – I quite like that since it will save me time and cleaning (the juicer does not take very long to clean, but if you have to do it 4-6 times a day it can easily become a bit tedious) and it is perfect to tap it up and keep in the fridge. I actually bought this carafe from the brand Viva Scandinavia and I really like it since its narrow enough to fit nicely in the side of the fridge without taking up too much space. What I didn’t realise when I bought it is that the brand also have a carafe that says “juice” instead of “water” which of course would be even more fitting so I just might invest in a some of those too! Maybe it’s just me, but I love the fact that the lid also come in different colours so I can colour coordinate the juices – very cute in my opinion!

This green juice is a bit smoother and not so sharp since it doesn’t have any lemon in it, in this greenie I have put fresh spinach leaves (about two handfuls), three cucumbers, two medium sized apples, three small pears and some parsley. As I have mentioned before I am quite the novice when it comes to everything kitchen and cooking related so this is definitely something new and exciting. I suppose juicing cannot really count as cooking per se but it truly is a wonderful way to get a lot of fruit and vegetables in your body in a quick and easy manner. I must also admit that I am still a bit amazed by the amount of juice that you get from only a couple of veggies and fruit, it’s great!
