Green Juice Mondays

What a weekend! Lots of friends and lots of food, it was a good one but today I’m feeling not so fresh.

Rather than beat myself up about what I did or didn’t eat, I’ll take the day to clean up with a 24 hour juice fast. Fasting can be very healing, it gives your digestive system a rest, clears out some unwanted junk, and provides a rich boost of nutrients.

The longest I’ve fasted on juice is five days, it’s intense and not something I recommend anyone do their first time without experienced support and guidance.  I have friends who have gone as long as 90 days, for the purpose of healing. It has profound effects on all aspects of self: mind, body and spirit.

If you’re curious check out Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, a great doc which chronicles an extensive juice fast and it’s transformative results.

Here are instructions for making a days worth of juice, you can add some extra veggies if you like or check out what celeb Jen Aniston drinks one day a week.

Give it a try, it’s empowering to take control of your “hunger”.
