For this week I will also be taking part in the Big Juice Clean Detox by Jason Vale, however this week is based on the Juice Yourself Slim book. That means I will be enjoying some delicious home made soups and some yummy salads this week. What I really enjoyed when I did the juice detox back in January was that all foods seem to taste so much better and stronger afterwards. I really appreciated my foods a lot more and enjoyed them in a completely new way.
Last night I felt very tired but that was probably because we had done 2 hours 15 minutes of running earlier in the day in preparation for the New York Marathon in November this year. We had also included a circuit workout, because there was all this stations with cross trainers, arm strength and belly strength along the way. This morning I was a fair bit sore but I feel brilliant now. I made sure to give my body the rest it needed after yesterday's workout and had 9 hours of sleep! Wow that was so good and so much needed. I am very energetic today which is great for my exam preparation plus later on I might throw in another run outside to give my body some fresh air and well deserved movement after all the study today.
Today I got to enjoy 4 juices/smoothies and I wanted to share one of my new found favourites; the sweet veggie juice recipe.
To make this irresistable juice you will need the following:
- 3 apples
- 1 celery stick
- 1/4 zucchini
- 1/4 cucumber
- 1/4 yellow capsicum
- 1/4 lemon
- 1cm piece of ginger
What are your favourite veggie juices? What are you favourite veggie juice recipes? Have you recently completed a detox and how did you go?
Lots of love!
