after several feasts around christmas and new years and some alcoholic days throughout january, i got inspired by amanda who is juicefasting since january 1st. every time i saw her fruit/juice pics, i got a visual vitamin boost. and i wanted it too. in real life! i wanted to taste it and feel the energy flow down my throat. the more i looked at the photos of amanda’s juices or of the plates where she had the beautifully cut fruit on, i thought: ” yesss, juice is the new black!!!” i started to do some research and decided to go for the bosch mes 3000 juicer (sounds quite manly, doesn’t it? and it’s true, the bosch is a tough guy, standing strong even if you give him several beet roots and carrots and ginger. he squishes them all!)

and now i am juicefasting too. i started three weeks ago but other than amanda who is ONLY drinking juice, i replace 50% or 75% of my daily meals with juice.

at first i took my recipes from joe the reboot guy. www.rebootwithjoe.com 

after a while you get a feeling though what you can combine and what might taste yummy and you start to make up your own recipes.

NOBODY PUTS BABY IN A CORNER JUICE

  • 1 bloodorange
  • 2 oranges
  • 1 teaspoon pollen
  • ginger
  • 1/3 honey melon

i can’t tell you any miracles that resulted out of my juicefasting action so far. but i can see some changes already:

after standing strong and healthy for 3 months now through the freezing and grey berlin winter, i finally managed to catch a cold now. and normally i am in a miserable state when that happens. it starts with a sore throat, then i get a fever and so forth. i don’t want to bore you with that. the good thing though is, it feels like i pass each stage of this nasty illness faster then i normally do. and what else should i ascribe this to than to my beautiful juices? which leads me to the next asset:

the beauty of the juice.

don’t you think that it looks like art? like a painting? like a color explosion? i find it soothing already to stare at my juice for a while after i made it. the juice is a poem.

one of my colleagues a very charming guy said to me: “what? you’re only drinking juice? you must stink like a cow after a while!” haha, we’re all bursting with laughter! and i can appease you, i don’t smell any different than i normally do (and my normal smell is: milk and honey with a slight hint of caramel, just so that you know).

another positive observation i made is: people frequently ask me if i’ve been on vacation and that i am glowing (even if i feel like s**t that day). my answer usually is ‘no’. and then they continue: “well, then you must be in love…”

me, smiling: “it must be the JUICE!”

f you decide to start a juice detox too or if you’ve already done it, tell me about your experiences. i’d love to know.

and here’s another nice boost juice for you.
