After return countless e-mails yesterday/last night/this morning/in the car/while working out/in bed, I have come to three conclusions:
1.) I am developing blisters from typing too much; I may need an e-mail hiatus.
2.) A lot of my readers are named Ashley or Stefanie.
3.) Through this juice cleanse challenge I am thrilled to discover how many of you are motivated towards living a healthy, happy life!
On a different note, so far today has been pretty easy. I have chugged water, drank tons of tea, & sipped my juice [ which I think tastes delicious…weird? ]. How are you guys feeling? I encourage you to comment below & share your Day 1 experience! As for my workout, I did an hour of Pilates.
Tonight I am having this:
Mike’s Super Low-Sodium Soup:
+ Serves four people
– Manishevitz Veggie mix
– 1 sautéed onions
– 1 1/2 cup of celery
– 1 1/2 cup of chopped carrots
– 1 chopped zucchini
– 7 cups of organic, low-sodium chicken stock
– 1/3 chopped, fine
– 1/2 lemon
Use a large pot. Bring the broth & sautéed veg to a boil. Add dry Manishevitz veggie mix. Simmer for one hour. Add the zucchini and the cabbage. Cook for an additional 30 minutes. Add seasoning mix that comes in the Manishevitz. Let sit until cool enough to eat. Add a squeeze of lemon. Total prep time: 2 hours.
For the protein part I am having a low-sodium, extra lean, plain turkey burger [ sans bun ]. What’s on your Day 1 menu tonight?
Best of luck- stay motivated; Summer 2012 is just around the corner ; ).
