What I Drank Today
I did it :) I started the day with something other than hot water and lemon, I had hot water and lime. I really enjoyed this combination too, it was just as zingy and just as refreshing -all in all a good start to the day :)
Next up was one of my favourite drinks on the programme - the Passion 4 Juice Master - this gorgeous combo of pineapple, apple, yoghurt and banana, is really indulgent, and enjoyable it's definitely something I will make again. You can find the recipe on how to make it yourself here. I had two portions of this one today and felt really full afterwards....
Hence I missed out the next juice on the plan the Pure Green Super Juice. This was the first and last time that this juice appeared on the plan but I just couldn't face it. It's a celery, cucumber, spinach and wheatgrass mix which you drink alongside a slice of orange to combat the taste. Sorry but my stomach wasn't going to play ball today.
To be honest I really wished I could have combated the taste of the next one - the Juice Master's Boost Juice. This was second new juice on today's plan but the first one that I managed to try. This juice contains pineapple, apple, watercress, parsley, kale, broccoli, and wheatgrass. Yeah it's very green in colour and in taste, despite all the pineaple and the apple in this juice you just can't taste it, all I could taste was parsley and I'm not a fan, so I found it incredibly hard to drink two servings of this one on today's plan - yes it's full of iron, and folic acid but I'm just not sure I'm going to be able to stomach another one of these tomorrow :( If your brave enough you can find the full recipe here. Oh and just to add it does contain alfalfa sprouts but they aren't that widely available so I haven't used them..
I finished the day with some fresh mint tea to settle my stomach and lots of water x
Ingredient Of The Day
Sorry guys, no ingredient of the day today but I promise I'll give you two tomorrow xx
How Am I Feeling?
Today started really well with some enjoyable drinks but it faded fast. The Passion 4 Juice Master is really filling and to be honest after 2 portions I felt pretty full, and a tiny bit bloated. I'm having trouble with the green juices at the moment so I'm not really regretting missing out the Pure Green Super Juice, and I am definitely regretting drinking two portions of the Juice Master Boost Juice. I love spinach, watercress, and broccoli but I'm not convinced I like them in a juice, in fact I know I don't. Not liking some of the juices and not feeling like drinking them has really made me feel a bit meh and fed up with the whole thing today.
Never mind I only have one day left to go, so I'm no doubt that I can finish the plan now x Thanks again for your good wishes and support x
