A 3 day Juice Feast

My little one took this picture, while watching me make my juice for lunch. At this rate he is going to be selling work as a photographer at age 3 :)
I am attempting a 3 day juice fast, with the support and inspiration from fellow bloggers. To see more information about our 3 day juice feast here is a link to Joanna's blog that encouraged/challenged us all.

Here are some of my favorite juices from today. I made about 5 different types just to see what I really liked, and what I would get more juice from. I'll share my top three :)

Morning Juice

"Green Morning Sunrise"
1 pineapple
1 head of romaine
A bunch of Kale
Juice it!
This makes about 2 cups/half a quart of juice. It tasted pretty yummy, I juiced the pineapple first and then stopped to pull out all the excess fiber that was separated. I put it in a container to make a pineapple sauce for my guy's lunch later. Don't waste a thing I say, especially delicious pineapple!

Afternoon Juice

"Carrot-Apple Lemonade"
6 Carrots
2 Apples
1 Lemon
Juice it!
This again makes about 2 cups/half a quart of juice, which is just enough for me to drink in one sitting. I ended up making more of this recipe because my lil guy loved the taste of this and drank about half of cup of my juice! This tastes surprisingly sweet, and the lemon counters the sweetness to make a really yummy juice.

Evening Juice
"Green Lemonade Love"
1 head of Romaine
1 bunch of Swiss Chard
1 Lemon (I use only 1/2 a lemon)
2 Apples
This is a recipe I use daily because its my favorite green juice. I can always drink 2 glasses/4 cups of this juice no problem. It makes about 2 cups/half a quart of juice. I credit this recipe to Happy Foody.

I'm feeling pretty good today. The only issue I've noticed is that my sinuses feel like they are either about to get plugged with a sinus infection or cold. Hopefully it doesn't get too bad, well I'm off to rest and cuddle my boys :)
Enjoy some juicing!

For Easter plans? ummm so far I was thinking about making cupcakes with some fondant if i have time to make it or just icing. But yeah Mathew can come over and help especially if i chose to make fondant its like shaping play dough in away but edible.Just have to tell him not to eat it! lol.
