2.10 - Doin' the (honey)Dew

Day 10! Last day of juice before the break. So far I am down 9 lbs. I know a lot of this is water weight and lack-o-stuff in my digestive tract, so I expect to go up over the weekend at least 2 lbs. If I add fish, I may be up 4 lbs.  Who's counting that when I feel good? (secret? It's me.)

Today my iPhone could not capture the color of this juice - pure straight Honeydew melon.  I tried different lights, nothing was quite right. Here it is:

Now isn't that a cool-looking drink?  I know there are different schools of thought about juicing melons, and for this one I fall into the juice it alone camp. It does something to my digestion, let's leave it at that.  It also has a nice mild flavor that would be hidden by another juice. 

I added some young coconut water because I was making 3 pints for my sister and Hubs, but one melon (without the rind because it was not ideal) made almost 3 pints. The coconut water is only to fill the pints to the brim and keep the air out to prevent oxidation.

I wanted to share the below image of what the juice looked like in person. I lit it up because it really looks like this in person and tastes like this as well. It occurred to me, suddenly, that Mountain Dew looks like this and then is it supposed to be honeydew flavor soda? In my limited experience "doin' the Dew" - I think not.  In fact, I would much rather drink this liquid neon green madness than the bottle poison marketed to us. Let us forever more do this (honey)dew!
