Juice Diet: Day 2

Today is Day 2 of my juice diet journey! I am excited and feeling energized today. I prepared my breakfast juice last night since I had an early and busy morning today. If you’re someone who is on the go and doesn’t have time to make juice during the day, try to find sometime during the day (for example, for me towards the end of the day) that you can prepare your juice(s). I bought cheap, plastic drink containers from target so that I could store my juices overnight so they’re cold and ready to drink the next day when I need them!

BREAKFAST:

"Summertime" Juice

“Summertime Juice”

Today’s breakfast juice is my “Summertime” Juice. This juice was so good, I think I finished drinking it in less than a minute. This juice also made me feel refreshed and energized, which was exactly what I needed this morning! Since I had such a busy morning I wanted to make sure I had something solid in my tummy so that my stomach wouldn’t be growling by lunch time. So with breakfast I ate half of a whole wheat english muffin, toasted, with strawberry jam.

“Summertime Juice” Recipe:

  • 1 orange (peel oranges and cut into slices that will fit into your juicer)
  • Half of a peach
  • 2 whole carrots (the big carrots, not baby carrots!)
  • 1 cup of strawberries (cut the leaves off before putting them into your juicer)

LUNCH:

Ingredients for my "Lean And Green Juice"

Ingredients for my “Lean And Green Juice”

If you like Granny Smith apples and lemonade, then this is the drink for you! This drink is very sweet and filling. This is one of my favorite juices! The amount of ingredients I used for this juice comes out to be exactly 700 mL (about 23 ounces), so it’s a fairly big juice.

“Lean And Green Juice” Recipe:

  • 2 Granny Smith apples (cut out apple’s core and cut apple into slices/chunks that will fit into your juicer)
  • Half of an orange (peel and cut into slices that will fit into your juicer)
  • 2 sticks of celery
  • 1 lemon (peel and cut in half, depending on the size of your lemon)
  • Half of a cucumber

DINNER:

Chicken Stuffed Avocado

Chicken Stuffed Avocado

For dinner, I had chicken stuffed avocado, which I have previously posted the recipe on my blog here.

Healthy Living: Daily Greens Cold-Pressed Juice

I recently stumbled upon Daily Greens Cold-Pressed Juice while I was shopping in Central Market. I was immediately intrigued and decided to buy six of them…oops. I figured that I could drink two juices per day, just to try the cleanse out.

I have tried a juice cleanse before (search my blog for the ‘Juicing: My Experience’ blog post) and I really do like them. However, until now I haven’t tried cold-pressed juices.

Introducing, Daily Greens Cold-Pressed Juices, the most amazing juice ever!

This juice comes in delicious flavors (see picture below)! My personal favorite thing about Daily Greens juices is that they are extremely good for you! Each bottle contains SIX POUNDS of fresh, raw produce, NINE SERVINGS of fruits and vegetables!! That’s insane! Those numbers are what immediately convinced me that I needed these in my refrigerator, and in my tummy!

Not only are the Daily Greens juices healthy for you, it all got started from a very interesting woman. Shauna Martin, Daily Greens’ founder, discovered her passion for green juice and all of its life-giving benefits following her battle with breast cancer. You can read more about Shauna Martin’s story at the link below.

Another great thing about Daily Greens, according to their website, is that a portion of Daily Greens’ sales are donated to organizations that assist young women battling breast cancer. So every bottle you drink makes you and many others that much healthier!

If you can’t find a grocery store near you that sells Daily Greens juices, you can order online through their home delivery service!
