21 Day Juice Fast Journey - Day 1

Happy Spring!!

1957 was a good year and 57 is a great birthday to celebrate. Join me in my countdown to my 57th birthday as I spring clean with a 21 day juice fast journey. All of my juice during week one will come from my favorite spot for lentil soup, La Pita Cafe (696 & Greenfield - Southfield, MI).

DAY 1 (March 29th)

A breezy Saturday morning - water, 5 mile walk and CARROT APPLE juice for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lots of water and lots of rest.

Carrot juice is extremely rich in vitamins and minerals. These minerals include sodium, iron, potassium, calcium, manganese and sulfur (the third most abundant mineral in your body after calcium). Carrots contain Thiamin, Niacin, Vitamin B6 (aka folate), Vitamin C, vitamin E, Vitamin K and Vitamin A, which is good for your eyes. They also are high in dietary fiber and contain beta-carotene which is great for weight loss!

Apples are high in fiber (especially the peelings). Apples are also good sources of electrolytes for fluid balance and also minerals (Potassium, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium).
Where's the protein? You might ask because everything in life needs protein to live and all vegetables contain some protein, which means eating a variety of vegetable can be a great and adequate source of protein!
Yours in health,
