The Worlds Biggest Juice Detox - Day 7

Well we're at the end of Day 7 so that means I'm officially finished :) - Here's how my last day went :)

What I Drank Today

I started the day with some lime in hot water, the same as yesterday and yet again I enjoyed. It was warming which is exactly what you need in this weather (brrrr), but refreshing and revitalising at the same time.

My first / juice smoothie of the day was the Juice Master's Super Juice. This has been me one of the most frequently reoccurring juices on the plan. I had two servings of this one today and I have to admit I struggled again. I'm really starting to think that it's the wheatgrass and all the green juices, my body just seems to be rebelling against them at the moment :(

The next juice on the plan is a smoothie in the truest sense of the word and one of my favourites, the Passion 4 Juice Master. This is filling, tasty and good for you, and definitely something I'll be making again ;). You can find the recipe for this one on the Juice Master website.

The next juice on the plan today was a new one, Juice Master's Home Made Sherbet Lemonade. You can see the full recipe here but it just a combo of lemon, golden delicious apples, and ice. It really tastes like sherbet lemon sweets. This is a yummy juice and one I will definitely make this one again especially since it's full of vitamins and minerals

The last juice on the plan today was the Juice Master's Boost Juice, and I'm going to be honest and say I left this one out, I don't like it and to be honest I wasn't that hungry.

I ended the day with another fresh mint tea infusion and lots of water x

Ingredients Of The Day 

As I missed this section out yesterday I'm going to make it up to you by giving you two ingredients of the day. First up a supplement that appeared in just one of the juices - the Juice Master's Super Juice - acidophilus. Also known as friendly bacteria or probiotics it occurs naturally in our stomachs and helps with digestion, sometime though food stuffs, ill health and so on can decrease the levels, so it doesn't do any harm to put some friendly bacteria back in there. You can pick this up quite easily in yogurts and drinks, but it's important to remember that the pots and bottles are necessarily that fresh so the bacteria will gradually be diminishing over time. If you want the product at it's strongest and most effective though then you can buy a range of capsules and tablets from most health food shops and online. I used to have regular acupuncture sessions and my acupuncturist recommended several supplements that she thought would help me and one of the acidophilus - I took if for a year and to be honest I can't remember why I stopped taking it.

I remember taking fruit flavoured chewable tablets. For the 7 day juice detox I received gelatin capsules, all you do is just cut the capsule in half and add the contents to your juice or smoothie, they don't have any real taste thankfully, so I'm going to continue using them this way rather than consuming the actual none veggie outer capsule.

My next ingredient of the day is something that didn't actually appear in any of today's juices but it's something that I love - Ginger. Ginger appears in two juices on the plan, the Juice Master's Lemon / Ginger Zinger and the Juice Master's Super Chute Juice. I love the warmth of ginger whether it be in biscuit or a cake, or in a curry or a stir fry - it's really versatile. It's excellent for nausea, and it also has anti-viral, and anti-inflammatory properties making it a real essential for when you have a cold or hay fever. It's also fab for ladies problems - my mum always used to make me warm milk with sugar and a just a sprinkling of ground ginger yummy! You don't need very much in any of the juices to give a real good ginger hit, and I found it really useful for helping with juices I didn't particularly like. A fab ingredient in all it's guises be it fresh or dried and ground, or even in syrup with ice cream yum :)

How Am I Feeling?

Well I'm not going to say too much in this post but I am pretty pleased that this is over with to be honest. I'm going to do a post tomorrow with the big reveal letting you now how much (if any argh!) weight that I've lost, and I'll also be letting you know about my thoughts and conclusions on the plan. Thanks for all your support and don't forget to check out the Juice Master website to find a little bit about what I've been doing for the last week xx
