"What's up, Doc?"

Carrot Ginger juice for lunch. I should have done a green juice, but after yesterday's concoction, I could not stomach the idea.

To answer some questions about Protein and fasting, well the short answer is, I am no doctor. All I know about this is from what I read and how I feel.

From my reading: While fasting, you are taking in all the vitamins, minerals, and whatnot that your body needs, as long as you vary the mixtures. For instance, all fruit is a no-no. Same goes for all root veggies (beet, carrot, turnip, parsnip, potato). I aim for a blend of everything. If it is in the produce section, it is going in the juicer. Yes, even the onions (maybe not eggplant). I am avoiding mushy fruits like banana, papaya, mango, and many berries because they are wasteful if you try to juice them. You can take them and blend them with water and strain them through a nutmilk bag, but the time, calories, and wastefulness of these fruits, for me, is pointless. Other things juice very well, so I will add the others to smoothies when I come off the fast.

That said, I juiced cauliflower, onion, and garlic for dinner. Now, I bought the cauliflower because I figured - hey, it'd be alright, a bit like some sauted side dish. I was wrong...

Gag. Ick. Bleck.


  1. the picture of you wincing as you sip from the glass brings to mind a question...what about a straw? that way you can just bypass the tastebuds.

    I just caught up on all 12 days. I am enjoying your writing and all the information. keep up the great work~

  2. I usually use a straw, but when I am home in the evening, I like a glass or bowl. I did not drink more than a 1/4 of this was ill conceived. If I were to ever do this again, I would mix this into some tomatoes, peppers, and maybe some basil.

    Thank you for the complement. I am glad you found something interesting.
