After a brief respite from my recent fast (complete with my new encounters with vegetable sushi and Chinese Five Spice chicken), I am ready to do another juice fast. So, I thought to myself that “there’s not time like the present” so, I’m getting back on one starting today. This time around, I plan on making it for just three days.
It’s funny. When I broke my fast, I thought it would be weeks or months until I was willing to try my next one but, the last few days allowed me to reflect on my fast and I realized that a lot of good things came from it. First of all, I g0t a lot more nutrients on the fast than I do in my normal diet. It must be all that kale which, until fasting, I had never consumed, in juice form or otherwise. Then, there’s the weight-control benefit. It’s great to find a way to cut down on the calories without sacrificing the intake of vital nutrients. Finally, it’s the general sense of well-being I got from knowing that I was doing something healthy for myself that was not hard. It was just a matter for juicing a few fruits and vegetables, over the course of a few minutes and drinking it down. Sure, it wasn’t steak and potatoes but, it also wasn’t terrible to the taste, either.
Like I’ve stated previously, I wanted to continue to make this fast a part of my repertoire so, I’m doing it again. So, fire up the juicer and let’s get back on this wagon!
