Off to the store today to find some beets and other foods to try. I've read in a couple places that you really need to vary your fruits and veggies to make sure you're getting enough of all your nutrients. I'm also tracking down some Spirulina, as it's a fantastic source of protein, as well as so many vitamins and minerals.
The blog will get updated throughout the day, so keep coming back to check my progress!
Lunch was late today due to clients in the office. The juicer sounds like a jet engine on takeoff... not the most relaxing sound in the world! Lunch was a straight veggie mix, since I need to get used to less sweet flavors:
1 cucumber (peeled)
6 mini sweet peppers
3 stalks of celery
1 lime (it really brightens up a juice!)
I started getting light headed mid afternoon, which surprised me. I was very busy today, more so than I expected to be, and I may not have gotten in enough calories. Dinner I tried adding beet... Will have to add that in smaller amounts next time. Beets taste like grass to me. I also realized at some point today that I hadn't been drinking any water with my juice and wonder if that may also be the cause for some of the light headedness.
