Juicing Day 1, Part 2
So… let me preface this with letting you all know, that my schedule is far from normal.
FAR. far. FAR.
i work nights… 7:30 pm to 8 am (at least) and i normally get there at 7 pm… i get up with my husband every morning (that i’m home) at 4:30 and i make him breakfast and lunch and send him off to work at 5:30… i usually go back to bed, preferrably immediately, but sometimes I’m not so lucky… and i get up around 9 or earlier… sometimes if i work that night i’ll try to sleep later, but it just doesn’t usually work…
i work weird days also… i work monday & tuesday… and then friday saturday and sunday, and then the next week i’ll work wedneday and thursday… so it’s a 2 week rotation, but it’s crazy sometimes…
this odd schedule has me wondering about how often i should be consuming my juices… lovely vegan girl and i discussed tonight that probably every 3 hours or so i should drink either some tea, lemon water, or a juice…
so, today so far (at 10 pm) i have had my Orange for breakfast,
i had a Green for lunch around 3 pm: –
Handful of kale
– 1 cucumber
– handful spinach
– half handful parsley
1 inch ginger
-3 handfuls kale
|– 1 cucumber|
|– 4 stalks celery|
|– 2 green apples|
|– 1/2 lemon|
|1 inch ginger|
((forgive the formatting issue, i copied & pasted wrong and now it won’t go away))
i say “OR” because i ended up having to mix the two of them b/c the one recipe created more than i anticipated, but not quite enough for two servings… so i’m not sure which one i had first… but as scared as i was b/c of the cucumber and celery – it was pretty good. 🙂
and i had a Red for a mid-afternoon snack at 5:45 pm:
3 stalks celery
1/2 lemon (peeled)
1 orange (peeled)
1 handful basil leaves
that one wasn’t so good… my beets are huge, so i think i ended up putting the equivalent of 4 beets in it… granted they were peeled, so it wasn’t as dirty tasting as it could have been, but… it was very beet-y…
so, right now… i’m pretty damn hungry. i’m about to go drink the other green (see above recipes) but i did just have a green tea, as well as some lemon water…
and… a negative — HOLY CRAP i’ve had to pee 20 times since i got to work at 7… ugh!!!
so i opened the other green juice just now, and it’s not as tasty as the other one… so i’m guessing this is the one i added the celery to.. but it’s still palatable… and i hope it solves my hunger for now!!!
it’s very tangy…
