Last night wasn't super easy. I kept smelling the kids' dinner and thinking it sounded amazing, but I refrained from partaking! I had a big glass of almond-cashew milk instead. It was a harder 1st day than last time, I think.
Today, though, woke up refreshed and energetic. Made some juice for Tara, and realized I had enough for myself for the day, so I left it at that. I made a green juice with broccoli and carrot for her today (instead of wheat grass), and then I got an idea for a tropical fruit juice and it was TASTY!!
2 small mangoes
2 pink apples (I used Gala)
5 handfuls black seedless grapes
It was bright and cheerful, and really flavorful. This is one I really wish I'd had time to strain off a second time... a lot of pulp got through and I was picking bits out of my teeth as I went. But it was so good, I picked up more mangoes! :) Going to try and copy the Mighty Mango Naked Juice either tomorrow or Friday! That one has:
3 1/2 Apple
2 1/2 Mango
Lemon (just a bit)
I know, TECHNICALLY I'm not supposed to have the banana, because it's added in the blender instead of the juicer... but I might just make an exception for this one. ;)
So! Today is going better... but I still really want to munch on something. I have scones sitting here, and veggie straws, granola bars and cracker sandwiches. I also really want a cup of cocoa! But most of that is just a carb craving going on, and I will get past it.
This kinda sucks a bit, but I can do it. I will do it. I will not give up. I will prevail! Okay, feeling a little better now. *nod* Dinner for the kids? I can resist munching. ;)
