32 oz. orange juice w/ 1/2 TBS MSM

10 oz. pear/apple juice
20 oz. green leaf lettuce/apple juice
Yikes, definitely didn’t get my 1 gallon in today… part of the issue is that my juicer really isn’t that great – its leaving my pulp super wet and so I’m not getting much juice out of my produce. I have a new appreciation for my Vitamix. I just don’t think you can really beat the vitamix-nut mylk bag scenario for making juice. If you are traveling somewhere on your juice feast, either make sure you have a large, super good blender where you’re going or you have a really really good juicer!
Thought I’d put the three pictures thus far next to eachother for comparison (Day 1, Day 27 and Day 50). Blogger doesn’t seem to be cooperating with me to post the pictures side by side, but the bottom picture is Day 1, the top left is Day 27, and the top right was this last wednesday, Day 50. It even amazes me how different I look because I just don’t experience it in a drastic way…
A question from a reader:
You INSPIRE me! may i ask if you have a good book about juice feasting for health , and what are some other protein sources besides bee pollen that you take? also besides odwalla juice, is there any other options for on the go emergency use? like small packet ones thanks! Nat
Nat, there isn’t really a full blown book out there on Juice Feasting YET, but as I’ve mentioned before, keep an eye out for David Rainoshek’s new book on Juice Feasting!
You can read more about it by going to his website, http://www.juicefeasting.com/
Our most favorite subject of all
Well, the main sources of protein on the Juice Feast are your leafy green juices, green superfood powders, algaes and your bee pollen. If you’re juicing your two pounds of leafy greens per day, having a few tablespoons of green superfood powder (Vitamineral Green, Nature’s First Food, Pure Synergy), algae (spirulina, chlorella, E3 Live) and eating about a tablespoon of bee pollen per day, you’re going to get all the protein you need. In fact, you are likely getting more protein than you ever have before in your life
. Bee pollen, as an example, contains an estimated 5-7 times more protein than meat, eggs or cheese, gram for gram.
I don’t know of any other good measures for on the go juice aside from when you have to do the Odwalla. Sometimes I’ll use that time of day when I don’t have access to fresh juice to eat my bee pollen (although, as you can see, its been a while since I had any), and you can also use this time to simply combine your green powders with water and drink that mix straight. Most importantly, just keep hydrated – if you can’t drink juice, drink a lot of water. Just FYI, Odwalla seems to be the best in regards to pasteurized juices.
In deep appreciation for all of your support,
