The Juicing Has Begun!

So Day 1, morning. I've made my very first juice combo, a creation of my very own! I am not going to be mixing up my own veggie juices (making my own recipes), but I thought fruit should be fairly simple to do myself. So here is this morning's creation:

1 red apple
2 peaches
2 kiwis
10 oz cantaloupe
2 key limes (squeezed into the drink - not juiced)

LOL! I made that name up, too. ;-) It's delicious! I'm drinking it now, actually.

I went grocery shopping yesterday at Sprouts and bought all of my veggies and fruit. I'm not sure how long they'll all last me, and I bought a shitload. I'm fairly confident that it will last me at least 2 weeks, but after juicing a couple of times, I'm not so sure. When you juice an apple, you get about 1/4 cup of juice out of it. My entire refrigerator is FULL. For the first time in YEARS, actually. It's pretty nice to open it up and have food in it. LOL! Especially fruits and veggies only. So I was expecting to spend probably about - at LEAST $100. When the cashier told me the total, it was $66! Sprouts it the BOMB, guys! Always cheap and delicious stuff. My friend & I were shocked! It's cheaper than anywhere else when it comes to fruits and veggies. Love this place.

Also, I bought some coconut water that I can put in my juices as well. It's not anything extra, it's simple coconut water only. Love it. When I was a kid, my dad used to buy coconuts and drill a hole in it and we would drink the water out of them.

I bought my juicer on Saturday, and it was about $49. I did my research before I actually bought one, but it I think I made a good choice for my price range.

It's incredibly easy to assemble, it's easy to clean, and it gets the job done. What more could I want! It's awesome. It sounds like a vacuum cleaner when I turn it on though. LOL! That was unexpected, let me tell you that. 

I play on vlogging the end of my days when I do this fast. I also plan on extending my fast to 15 days instead of just 10. We'll see how it goes. I'm excited, guys!


  1. I'm so excited. Your first juicing creation sounds delicious, I want some! So I'm going to get my juicer maybe today. But I was telling Darius about when I wanted to start and he thinks I should start after the wedding since the first few days will make you feel rather crappy. He doesn't want me to feel crappy this week lol. I do agree but I'm still ready to start! That juiced apple was the best apple juice I have ever tasted. Bottled apple juice will never be the same. So what made you want to do 15 days instead of 10?

    1. You know, he's probably right! You wanna be relaxed, chilled out this week! Start after, definitely! After your honeymoon! :-)
      I want to do the 15 days because I think that the longer I can do it, the more benefits I'll get. And there isn't much difference in 10 or 15 days, so I thought that I might as well do the 15 day one. And also, it's not unreasonably long, so I just decided to try it out.

  2. I need to watch the documentary asap. Im excited to try it out too!

    1. B, you can watch it on the website OR on Netflix. Pretty great!
