New resolution! Juicing Diet 101!

So my sister, Catherine, came in over the break and started talking about this "new diet phase" of juicing... I listened to her and just ignored most of it, but humored her anyway. After she left and I got on the scale, I realized I needed to do something to change how I was eating...I texted her and asked for the title of the documenatary she had been talking about, Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. My boyfriend, Price and I, sat and watched the whole documentary and proceeded to make our first purchase together....a Breville goes nothing.
We went to central market because I figured if all I was going to be able to do was drink juice, I was going to drink the best juice I could make from the freshest produce! $75 later, we returned home and I put the ingredients for each recipe in separate bags to make it easier.

Friday we got home from walking to find the juicer on the front porch......can you imagine the excitement??? (sarcasm implied)
We made our first drink, the Giant Green Berry Blend consisting of beet greens, 24 strawberries with the green taken off, one golden delicious apple, two bananas, 2 cups of coconut water, and 2 tablespoons of flaxseed oil....I know you are salivating now! Honestly, it wasn't that bad. Later we had some herbal tea and called it a night. Dinner of day one. We will have to see how it goes, but it is worth a try and surely can't hurt.

Don't worry, we are not subjecting the kids to any of this craziness, but they think we have lost our minds!!!
