I definitely jinxed myself last night- I started to detox right after I closed the laptop for the evening. I never ever ever get headaches and got a pretty bad one; so bad that I thought I was going to throw up. At first I thought maybe I was hungry, but nope, definitely not hungry. Solution: I drank a whole lotta water and I was in bed before nine o’clock.
Although I didn’t sleep the whole night through, again, I did wake up feeling much better than the previous night. I started my day off with one little pot of green tea (2 whopping glasses) and juice. I should have stuck to a recipe that included cucumber, but no, I thought that because I was on a roll, this morning would be no different. The result: a cucumber sour intolerable yuckiness!
The reason as to why I was so adamant about the cucumber was because I woke up twice in the middle of the night with a bad leg cramp. I see this as a lack of potassium and cucumbers = potassium. Long story short, I could barely drink up all my juice and had a sour look on my face with each sip.
Lunch was a repeat– Beet the Blues— and was just as good as last evening’s supper. But as I sat at my computer this afternoon, I looked up some juice recipes that were a little more, what word would I use to describe my craving, savory? I combined a couple recipes and got… Mexico Monday! I love love love spicy food and I did pretty darn good getting this just right on the first try.
The verdict: the good! 4 or 5 plum tomatoes (what was fresh at the co-op; can’t wait to have them from our garden), 1 red pepper, 2 medium carrots, 3 scallions, 1 jalapeno, and one clove of garlic from last year’s garden. Juice and enjoy! I put it into a bowl because it reminded me of soup, squirted 1/2 a lime on top and put some chunks of lime in the actual “soup.” So. Stinkin’. Good! I don’t think I’m going to be able to wait until next Monday to whip this up again.
Stayed tuned for tomorrow’s post… I have a BIG announcement to make about my personal life. And it’s a good one!
