Day 20 - Easy Does It

Today was super easy, perhaps because I only used the Vitamix and nutmilk bag for two of my four juices. Although I've gotten that down to a neat little system, I sometimes don't have enough interest to go through it. I used my citrus juicer to make a nice orange/grapefruit, and also threw chunks of watermelon into a nutmilk bag to squeeze out that pretty red juice.

I ate my bee pollen first thing this morning, though from what I understand it's not really necessary until some time after the 30 day mark. I've been working out a lot, so I figure I may need that little extra protein. The experts at Juice Feasting say it can slow down the cleansing, so I'll probably take small amounts as an ocassional supplement until I pass 30 days.

Speaking of time-frames, I'm still not sure how long I'll continue on my juice feast. I set a minimum intention of 31 days, but I'm taking a wait-and-see approach to deciding whether or not I'll continue after that.

Today's Juice:
apple/kale/ginger lemon (Made this one waaaaay too strong. Easy does it on the kale next time.)
