This is Day 3 and this juice fast is HARD!! We made a yummy juice this morning – carrot, apple, orange, lime, blackberry and blended it with banana. I (Laura) had saved some for a mid-morning snack. Then we had to make dinner for our children. One of our favorite chicken dishes with oven-fried potatoes and steamed green beans, fresh from the garden. It was painful!!! Seeing them eat this yummy (and healthy) food while we sipped our green juice – kale, spinach, celery, beet, ginger, carrot. Hard I tell you!!! I (Laura) had about 20 ounces, but by 3pm I was HUNGRY! and wondering if this is worth it. Then we thought back to all of the other hard things in life – natural childbirth, completing a marathon, homeschooling, etc., made a pick-me-up juice – carrot, plum, kiwi, apple, and watermelon and decided to persevere!
Ran across a recent interview with Phil (from “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead”) and he said stick it out to at least day 4. Past this day most of the toxins have gotten out your body and you start to feel so much better you feel like you could juice forever.
Where would we be without the promise of Philippians 4:13, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” We are going to need to it!!!
