Monday: Sunset Blend Juice. Brent and I have decided we are going to do a 10 day juice cleanse starting Friday! We are super excited to get started. We will be following the juice regimen from here, which is where you can find the recipe for this juice. Since I am writing this after having finished my juice, I can tell you it is good, but I double the recipe, making far too much for Brent and I. The juice was very earthy, although that was to be expected with all those root vegetables. I think next time I will add some more orange or apple, to sweeten it up a bit. And the beets stained my hands.
Tuesday: Pasta with Fresh Tomato Sauce. Since we are doing the juice cleanse this weekend, we need to eat up some things we have, and pasta I have!
Wednesday: Grilled cheese sandwiches and asparagus on my homemade bread.
Thursday: Dinner out for date night!! We are going to see The Postal Service play for our anniversary so we are going to make a whole night of it. Well, until we have to pick up Clara from her Yaya's (Grandpa) house.
Friday: Day 1 of the 10 day cleanse! Wish us luck!
This week I decided to try someplace new for my produce. I heard from a friend on Facebook about a local market that sells cheap produce. It's not locally grown or organic, so that was two strikes against a local market, but I decided to try it out anyway. The prices were amazing! Four cartons of strawberries for $1. Three bunches of celery for $1. Peppers for $1/lb. It was well worth the trip, which was only a little farther than I usually travel for my groceries.
I bought everything except the carrots and spinach at the new place, Superstition Ranch Market. My total grocery bill for all this produce was $45. $45!!! I got loads of produce, including:
and loads more I can't even remember.
I also ordered my bountiful basket today, just a friendly reminder to do so if you haven't yet.
So tell me. Have any of you every tried a juicing cleanse? Thoughts? Recipes?
