Along with being active I've also been trying to eat healthier. I've been juicing in an effort to get more veggies into my diet. I have done the 3 day cleanse and I've followed the reboot but more recently I've been replacing breakfast with a juice. Below are some recipes that I've tried. Here's what I've learned along the way.
My energy level was good.
Most juices tasted better than I thought they would.
Some, I have to be honest, were disgusting!
It's easier to do than I planned
I had to try different combinations to see what I liked so it is a bit of an experiment and you learn as you go.
***Remember to peel all citrus fruit. I also peeled my beets.
This one was 3 carrots, 2 oranges and 1 beet. I also added ginger root to this one and I really liked this a lot. It made a little more than this cup.
This contained 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 cucumber, 2 handfuls of spinach. I liked this one too. I found adding cucumber to the juices makes them taste lighter and more refreshing...at least for me. But the first was still my favorite of the bunch.
Since this is about pushing my limits the thing that I have done that impressed me the most so far was Warrior Dash This is an awesome obstacle course mud run that raises money for St Jude's. I felt so proud of myself at the finish line right after I jumped over the fire. That's right, I said fire :) I'm already signed up for the 2013 race.
So now I'm wondering what will my next adventure be? Any ideas?
