21 Day Juice Fast Journey - Day 13

DAY 13

CARROT ORANGE APPLE BEET juice the first half of the day (Don't forget the water!)
 Spring has sprung! Just as when fall changes to winter, transition between season calls for extra vitamin C!

What is fasting and why should I do it?

Some fast for weight loss and/or detoxing purposes. Some call fasting a spiritual discipline. It is often connected with prayer, Bible study and meditation. Unger's Bible Dictionary explains that the word fast in the Bible is from the Hebrew word sum, meaning "to cover" the mouth, or from the Greek word nesteuo , meaning "to abstain." For spiritual purposes, it means to go without eating and drinking.  SOURCE:

Another favorite Detroit spot for not only raw juices but also great smoothies and delectable vegetarian and vegan meals if the Golden Gate Cafe (18700 Woodward Ave). DAY 13 dinner is the GREEN DRAGON smoothie (green apples, spirulina, blue green algae, spinach, green tea, pine bark extract, bananas and apple cider).

Spirulina is a blue-green algae used as a nutritional supplement. Blue-green algae, which are microscopic fresh-water organisms , derive their color from the green pigment of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is the compound in plants that converts the energy from the sun into food for the plants. Chlorophyll's chemical structure is similar to human blood; which is why consuming chlorophyll can boost hemoglobin levels, improve blood circulation and increase energy.SOURCE:
