Juice Cleanse: Day 3; feeling great

Posted by on February 24, 2014 at 8:50 am.

I’m currently going into day 3 of my juice cleanse and I feel great.

This morning, I was up at around 1:30 a.m. I couldn’t sleep and so I drank one of my potent dark green juices. What was in this blend? Obviously, it has dark leafy greens, but I also included ginger, head of garlic and a habañero pepper. The juice is very potent. I’ll post the exact recipe and accompanying picture hopefully later today. I’ll warn you, if you don’t like hot, you won’t be liking this juice. It’s not for the spicy lightweight. One of my former coworkers used to call it, ‘Opals Vegan Alcohol’.

After drinking my green juice (that has a powerful kick) I lay back down and was finally able to go back to sleep. I awoke around 4:30 a.m., ready to take on the world with tons of energy! Warm ginger tea was the first thing I drank, since it’s a great to get the digestive system moving which makes having bowel movements a bit easier. In addition, I added a teaspoon of turmeric, to my ginger tea. Why? Turmeric is great for the liver. It makes sense to help the liver out since your liver is working a bit harder  while you’re  on a juice cleanse, right?

Am I feeling hungry the third day of my juice cleanse?

I can honestly say that I’m not feeling any hunger. My body is gathering all the nutrients that it can in a highly concentrated form. Because I’m juicing, the nutrients are assimilated by my body much easier than drinking smoothies or eating solid foods.


Day 3 of my juice cleanse, How am I feeling?

I feel amazing!  In fact, I feel like running around in a wide open field, just like Julie Andrews! My nasal passages are clearer than they normally are and my energy levels are even higher. My energy levels are high already, but juicing always kicks it up a few more notches.

    @Jennifer, Two additional people, they contacted me on Facebook. As you know, recently I’ve been posting more articles related to health. I can’t tell you the exact reason, only that I’ve felt led to do that. Does that make sense? I will say, that the responses I’ve been receiving occasionally on the post, but mainly by FB mail has been impressive!

    And you are the BEST at being supportive and encouraging others! You’re wonderful!

    Oh you’re too kind. I try to be helpful if/when I can. I will say, if I know someone fairly well I will tease them about a variety of things.
