Valentines day 2012 was the year I gave my heart to juicing and committed to at least a day once a month and have a three-days cleanse once in a while especially when I feel very sickly or when the migraine starts to trigger.
Ever since I went serious and got hit by the juice bug by the juju nazi of jujucleanse, juicing has become a staple in my lifestyle to the extent that I have already ditched my usual Caramel Macchiato to a matcha green tea or brewed tea; prefer a day at San Benito Farm when the budget permits and for the pescetarian that I am, I have been eating more greens than fish (although, I really have to learn how to wee myself from rice)
Since I am committing on putting myself on a reboot towards a better lifestyle, I’m learning more from the raw experts and certainly being motivated by yoga practice.
It sure helps — a lot.
I’m cleaning my diet and jotting down every meal or drink I take in. Here are the delectable I certainly have to turn my back off for a while:
Sugar treats (including the occasional ice cream)
Transition off from Dairy (Milk tea, I’m sorry.)
- Bid farewell from the Espresso
The habit of hydrating my body more than 8 glasses has been a huge success since the start of the year; I have found that the most effective tool on hydrating is to actually carry a water bottle next to you at all times; have a spare bottle in your car and within the proximity of your desk.
Since I am transitioning to nourish my body more than how I get to, I’ll be juicing not just for a day but rather put a conscious effort to at least juice a glass every single day.
Here’s the game plan:
- JUICE: A Liter of lemon grass, few greens, watermelon, wild honey, and apple all together.
- DESSERT: Vanilla Chia Seeds Pudding
- NIGHT CAP: Tea
I will monitor myself for a week or two just in time for my monthly entire day juicing and transition to a full three days juicing feast.
If you’re wondering about my vanilla chia seeds dessert recipe, it’s the easiest thing! Here’s the recipe:
- 2 cups of soy milk
- 1/4 cup of honey or B-Grade maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup chia seeds
Mix them all together and refrigerate for at least 4-5 hours or up until it’s hardened enough like a jello. You can add fruits on top of this scrumptious pudding like how you eat your yogurt!
This calls for a trip to Healthy Options!
