21 DayJuice Fast Journey - Day 2

Sunshine ushered in day 2 of my 21 day juice fast journey. All of my juices da 1 - 7 will come from my favorite spot for lentil soup, La Pita Cafe (696 & Greenfield - Southfield, MI). You will find carrots in every juice I drink this week!
Carrots are loaded with minerals that include: sodium, iron, potassium, calcium, manganese and sulfur (the third most abundant mineral in your body after calcium).
Carrots are loaded with minerals that include: 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!

Breakfast and dinner juice was CARROT-CELERY-SPNACH-PARSLEY

Raw celery has Vitamin A, Calcium, Iron and Vitamin C. Celery also has carbohydrates, fiber and sugar. In ancient Rome, Celery was considered a powerful aphrodisiac
Spinach contains anti-oxidants and anti-cancer causing agents. This vegetable is a great source of vitamin K, folate, magnesium and Betaine (which is used to cleanse the blood system and relax the mind).

Parsley is vitamins and mineral rich, containing vitamin A, vitamin C, calcium , thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, zinc , potassium, and iron . The boron and fluorine in parsley give strength to the bones.

Lunch was CARROT BEET juice

Carrots have the highest content of Vitamin A out of all vegetables
Beets are a highly nutritious root, good for heart and colon health
Beets, are high in complex carbohydrates and loaded with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and phytochemicals Beet root are an excellent source of folate, manganese, vitamin C (which improves absorption of iron from plant sources), potassium, iron, magnesium (needed for the formation of protein and bone, making new cells, activating B vitamins and blood clotting) and thiamin (a water-soluble B vitamin, that the body requires to break down carbohydrates, fat and protein. It’s also required for the proper functioning of the nerve cells). Beets are rich in anthocyanins (responsible for the repair and protection of DNA in the body).
