M and I started day 1 of the Green Machine Juice Fast, inspired by the documentary Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.
We scored a Breville Juicer at half price and started juicing!
One day supply for 2 people. You need to drink 4 16-20oz glasses per day.
Breakfast: Day 1.
I wanted to write about our experience here because I feel like it will keep me more accountable to publicly state that I am doing this. We're setting out to do 10 days to start, possibly longer if we feel good on Day 10. I have to be honest, the juice isn't delicious, but it's drinkable and totally healthy. We've made it through Day 1, and as you read this are beginning Day 2. I'll keep you posted on how we are holding up.

Here is the recipe we are using for our Green Machine. This recipe makes one 16-20oz serving:
6 Kale Leaves
4 Celery Stalks
2 Green Apples
1/2 a Lemon
1 small piece of Ginger Root
Have you ever tried this fast? Have you watched the documentary? Do you think we're totally nuts-o?
