There ain’t no dang way I can shovel all this food into my stomachs.

…not unless I juice it in my brand new Breville Juicer instead!!!

veggiesThe entire cornucopia of goodness would not fit in the pic, but what I juiced today was:

  • 6 apples
  • 6 celery ribs
  • 2 cups grapes
  • 3 cups spinach
  • 2 small handfuls cilantro
  • 10 carrots

Can you imagine gnawing all this off a plate so your body can suck in the nutrients? There ain’t no way. But juicing is the answer!

I set the final results up against a 1/2 gallon carton so you can get a good idea of how much all of this yielded. I made extra today as a means of doing a pseudo juice fast.

  • Until Noon: hot tea only, blending Oolong & Mate teas from Teavana
  • Early Afternoon: juice slurping
  • Late Afternoon: Cajun-Baked Tilapia with green peppers & onions
  • Snack: more juice slurping
  • Dinner: Curry chicken with broccoli, carrots & onions

No sugar. No carbs. No dairy. Not today.

With my current focus on leaning out and muscle building, I can’t deny myself the protein my body needs, which is why this isn’t a strict juice/veggie fast.

My new juicer is freaking wonderful. OMG, why did I wait so long to buy it!? It’s the same exact brand & model the guy used in the Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead movie. Besides that being a huge selling point for me, I took the time to read countless reviews, comparing different brands and models. I’m very happy with my purchase.

Juicing is not only delicious, but it can be an empowering aspect of your diet to combat excess greediness being in control. My birthday is coming soon (February 17th!) so there’s an appropriate time coming up for me to revel in the delicious of sweets. It’s just not today. Because I’m juicing, baby.

If you have any questions about juicing, if you’ve considered juicing, or simply want to share some great juicing ideas, please leave a comment! Enjoy your day.

    Mmm…I don’t use my juicer nearly enough (it is a pain to clean). My fave is apple carrot beet juice. Mmmm….perhaps I will dig mine out an concoct a new juice.

    • yumyucky says:

      you totally should. The more you use it, the less of a pain it will feel like to clean. It’ll just become habit & routine. Sho-nuff.

    That’s it, I need to buy that juicer! I saw that movie too, and I even got Mr C on board with juicing! Okay, February, I got some budgeting to do to land that juicer!

      Budget way, Kalley! My hubs was on the juicing bandwagon after seeing the movie, too. But then he fell back off. So I left him there & kept riding. This juicing wagon don’t make no stops. LOL!

    I’m sipping on a smoothie as I type this! I just use my blender right now but I could totally justify buying a juicer so I can add some veggies other then spinach and kale. Love it!

    Carrots? Why carrots? I don’t like any of the orange vegetables and if you had ever seen what my mother can do to squash and carrots you would know why. What can I substitute for carrots? Broccoli? Beats?
    I binged on Ginger Snap cookies yesterday so my tummy really could use a refresh!!!

  7. Inspiring! I need to invest in a juicer. I keep spending crazy amounts on beet, apple, celery, carrot & ginger juices a couple of times a week.

    I wish I would have figured this sooner, it would have saved me years of avoiding lots of vegetables at the very least, not to mention the amazing health benefits!
    Juicers are really like these godsent majestic machines that help vegetable hating people stay healthy, haha. I’m very big on fasting, and I just couldn’t have done it without a juicer.
    Congrats on the great blog and thank you for being so inspiring to me (and certainly to many other people). Stay strong and keep blogging!

    How did your juicing day go, YY??

    We have been juicing for the past few weeks as well, but haven’t really had any plan to how we are doing it, or what meals we are replacing.

    I do know that I typically feel amazing and energetic for the past few hours after drinking a big green glass of juicy goodness.
