Fruit & Veggie Fast: Day 2
Day 2 of the fruit and veggie fast had some highs and lows.
It started off great with a mint berry smoothie that was fantastic. That got me pretty pump about the rest of the day...until about 2 hours later when it was time for a mid-morning snack.
I think it's safe to say that the juice we made for that snack tasty like burnt hair. No one drinks burnt hair. Ever. The fact that the recipe called for 12 radishes should have probably sounded some alarm, but unfortunately it didn't. And I would have rather thrown myself out the window than drink this concoction.
Lunch didn't instill much more confidence in our decision to do this fast. It was a classic rabbit meal with lettuce, carrots, celery and fennel. Blah.
Thankfully, dinner saved the day. We had roasted acorn squash stuffed with portobello mushrooms and sage. And it was delicious. We'll almost certainly cook it again after our little experiment is over.
Physically I felt great all day. I had good energy and didn't have any headaches. The mental side of things, or at least the psychological side of this, wasn't so great. After our experience with that death juice this morning, I was seriously second guessing the decision to do this fast for 10 days. Thankfully Ashley was there to help encourage me.
