I love to cook, I love to eat, I love all things purple and I just happen to be vegan!
I am so bad......I have been away for awhile doing a several different challenges one of which was the Vegan Fitness Challenge. I did the Vegan Fitness Challenge 4 times last year and I was very happy with my results (I will share my results in another post). After being so restrictive with my eating I have spent the last 3 1/2 months eating like crap.....you know what that means.....time to DETOX!! To start off my detox I am doing a 7 day juice fast. I didn't prepare ahead of time so my first juice of the day was compliments of The Juice Kitchen. I had the juice named Real Bucks which had kale, apple, lemon and lime. I was pretty tasty.
I did make it to the grocery store this afternoon to get produce for my week long juice fast. Now you know I am pretty budget conscious so I wanted to share my grocery haul and the cost breakdown of my juice for today. I went to 2 stores today and got some pretty good deals, I think I am pretty much set for the week and I probably won't need to make any other trips to the store this week but we shall see. At store #1 (Cermak Fresh Market) I spent $18.32.
Here is what I got:
Ginger (small piece app. 3 inches)
Kale (1 bunch)
Collard Greens (1 bunch)
Carrots (5 pounds)
Fuji Apples (14= app. 6 pounds)
Broccoli (1 bunch)
Naval Oranges (4= app. 3 3/4 pounds)
Pears (3= app. 1 1/2 pounds)
Tomatoes (4= app. 1 1/2 pounds)
At store #2 (Walmart) I spent $10.68.
Here is what I got:
Spring Water (2 gallons)
Celery (2 bunches)
My grand total spent was $29.00. I wanted to stay under $25 but I just had to have that pineapple, cucumbers and broccoli. I did manage to stay under $30 though which is still pretty good.
My juice recipe for today consisted of carrots, apples and celery.
The cost of this juice was $3.45 and it yields about 46 ounces of juice which breaks down to about $.56 per cup.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
