3-Day Juice Cleanse – Day 2

20130623-222728.jpg

Day 2 of my juice cleanse was considerably more difficult. I was hungry and wanted to eat solid food. I made it all the way until dinner time then caved. I had homemade baked meatballs and a baked potato. I also had two cups of coffee in the morning and a chai latte in the afternoon, so I guess it doesn’t really count as “real” juice day.

Will I try it again? Probably. I would like to see if I can do it for 3 straight days. Part of what made it so difficult was that my seasonal allergies are pretty bad right now. I just craved beverages and food that would soothe my throat. Maybe it’s best to do this when NOT feeling under the weather.

My recipe for today’s smoothie:

2 apples
2 beets
1 bunch celery
3 carrots
Fresh ginger, about an inch
6-8 strawberries
Half a lemon

To me, this juice tasted like rhubarb. Not bad, but a little too tart for my taste. Guess I just wanted to balance out all the green juice from the day before.
