Day 1 -15 Day Juice Reboot

Day 1 Complete -Of Our15 Day Juicing Reboot.
Update from this morning.
As I approached today (yesterday) I found myself feeling anxious. Knowing I would NOT be able to eat other foods (like meat/fish/chicken...) for 15 days...
Well just like quitting smoking, I have to push past it and think to myself, how very silly it is. That food has such a grip on me. But I can CHANGE THAT ! 

.Felt great today really, The pre-planning a week before I think made a big difference.  Had Super C in the morning and Green Juice in the afternoon and water in-between.  I went shopping after work and it was interesting how all the smells coming from the bakery were very intense!  Also, since I only go to the vegetable department, I was very aware of all the processed food on the corner isles as you walk to the cashier (I never noticed this before).  

Came home and made a salad with Spinach, Cucumbers, Celery, Cauliflower, Ginger, Mushrooms,Green Onion, Tomatoes and a few raisins on top.  For the Dressing used the Mustard Vinaigrette recipe from  which is: 1/3 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar, 1 1/2 Tbsp. Grain Mustard, 2/3 cup of Cold Pressed Olive Oil, Sea Sale & fresh ground Pepper.  The salad was great, actually I was stuffed!.

After Dinner, I cleaned all the Vegetables, then made a big batch of Green Juice for tomorrow-
In order to get 64 oz it took 1/2 bunch Kale (at $1.69/bunch so about $0.80 ), 1 head of celery $1.69, 1 Package of Spinach $1.69, 3 Cucumbers @.50/ea, 6 Apples at $0.99/Lb?, 1 Lemon at $0.45, 3" ginger (pennies) - I bought the juice containers at K-Mart for $1.69 (I couldn't find good glass containers)

I am spending more time in the kitchen - preparing and cleaning up,  I don't put the pieces of the juicer in the dishwasher, I wash them all so it's ready for the next use.  So good planning ahead seems to be a key element of this.

I hope tomorrow goes this well -   Hey folks at the Sales Meeting Tomorrow, I'm NOT Stopping To Buy Donuts!  Ha Ha  

Day #2 on it's way!
