Today is Day 7 of my Cleanse. The last time I posted about my Cleanse was the evening of Day 2 and I was a little cocky-no symptoms, I’m so clean, etc….Well the next morning I woke up with a headache and I really don’t like headaches.
I almost took an aspirin, but held back. I drank a lot of water and went for a nice long walk with my doggie, Wilma. By noon the headache was gone. What it did is remind me that I did need to Cleanse. My body had been giving me signals for a while and I’m glad I finally listened.
The next days were good. I have created some really great recipes using my Vitamix. The Vitamix is a really powerful blender, so you get pulp and all, which is my favorite. This, however, gives you smoothies and not juice. Granted, I only use vegetables and some fruit, but the pulp slows down the absorption of the nutrients. That’s generally fine with me as I like the dietary fiber from the pulp.
I also have a Champion Juicer, which spits out the pulp therefore creates juice and an Omega Juicer, which does the same.
The only thing about this type of juicer and throwing away all that pulp-it pains me! So I don’t…I placed the pulp in a saucepan covered with cold water and let it simmer for a bit for stock. You could also freeze it to make stock later, or add it to your next muffin recipe. I can think of many uses for it, but for now, I won’t think about that. I will continue with my Cleanse and feeling really good!
