Soup to the Rescue!

The morning started off with a kale, strawberry, blueberry, coconut water, and kiwi juice. I know you are thinking I should bottle that juice up and sell it, but that isn't in the cards at the moment... It wasn't too bad, and it started off the last day of vacation on the right foot. However by noon, my stomach was ready for something else. Riley wanted a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with cheetos (pure torture) and I just couldn't have another juice drink! Under duress, she accompanied me to Sprouts where we picked up some more produce to make a new soup recipe. Solid food at last! After 64 hours of only juice (with the exception of the dinner at my Uncle's) soup was a sight for sore eyes!!! The Green Vegetable Soup recipe on the "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" website was easy to make and very good! I doubled the recipe so that there would be plenty for lunch and dinner throughout the week.
Tomorrow will be a true testiment of dedication...going back to work with all the snacks that people bring and lunch with my friends will be hard to keep the self-control, but I have to do it!!! A couple of Delicious Green apples will be in my bag to keep me from digressing.
My sister started her juice fasting today and I haven't heard from her. Hoping she had a better first day than I did :).
I forgot to take any pictures today of the different foods, but I will try to remember tomorrow. Juicing on!!!
