nowadays, people are more health conscious. marathons, triathlon, zumba, yoga and many more exercise and other activities are the fab. other than those tiresome exercises, detox or fruit juice diet is also in the trend today. there are already a few celebrities posting there experiences in drinking those fruit juices in instagram. it’s been awhile since two of our housemates have been trying the juice diet. me and one of my roommate kept telling that one of this days we would definitely try it too. so when one of our housemate bought a bunch of fruits and vegetables and extracted its juices, we decided that we will go to the market to buy some too. we spent more or less 33sgd all-in-all. it took us almost 2 hours to finish slicing and then extract the juice using our housemate’s juicer. it was a lot of fruits and vegetables, that in between the process, the juicer stopped working because it began to over-heat. hehehe. all-in-all, we got 7 bottles full of fruit and vegetable juices. that was our only food for the next day.
the next day, even though i was still sleepy, my roommate stormed inside the room telling me that i have to get up and drink the juice. so i forced myself to get up to drink the juice. i don’t want to get sick just because hunger has already passed me by. the first juice contains celery,spinach,romaine lettuce,lemon,orange,apple,cucumber,carrots. despite how many ingredients was on the juice, i can still taste and smell the celery. but it was still delicious. by 11am, we drank again and this time the juice contains, beet root,apple,carrot. that was my least favorite because, i can smell the beet root which is like the smell of roots. hehehe. but it was sweet so it was still okay. by 2pm, watermelon,lemon,orange,apple juice was next. this was one of my favorite. it was really refreshing and tasty. by the time 5pm came, before going to church, i drank the spinach,romaine,ginger,cucumber, celery,lemon,carrot,pineapple juice. i really don’t like any food that has ginger but surprisingly, i liked this one. the juice was a bit spicy and sour. the last juice that i drank was the papaya,grapes,apple,orange. it was like drinking a papaya shake. it was sweet. it was a nice way to end my fruit and vegetable juice diet.
even though i survived a 24 hours of not taking any solid food, my head was beginning to hurt by 9pm so i decided to eat some sandwiches. hehehe. but hey, it was a good start. i deserve a pat in the back and some applause. hopefully, the next time we do this, it won’t be too hard for me. i hope i won’t be thinking of food more often. hahaha.
below are the juice recipes. i ordered them based on my preference.
- celery,spinach,romaine lettuce,lemon,orange,apple,cucumber,carrots
- beet root,apple,carrot
