I love to cook, I love to eat, I love all things purple and I just happen to be vegan!
As I sit here typing this post I am drinking what will probably be the last thing I drink this evening because I don't want to wake up several times during the night to pee (LOL). One obvious thing about doing a liquid fast is that there are plenty trips to the toilet which is natural of course because you are eliminating toxins from your body. When doing a detox you can expect to eliminate toxins, they will secrete through the pores in your skin as well as through your bowels and urine.
Today I woke up and immediately drank 16 ounces of room temperature water and had a cup of caffeine-free tea with 1/2 of lemon squeezed in it. I usually drink water for the next couple hours, I am not a huge breakfast person so I usually hold out until lunchtime for my first juice of the day.
My first juice today was 28 ounces of green juice. I only drank about 1/2 of it in a sitting and ended up drinking the rest about 2 hours later.

I didn't move around much today since I was working on a project at home so I didn't need a lot of juice to sustain my energy level. My energy never waned throughout the day. Today I ended up drinking about 88 ounces of juice. I also left the house later in the evening to go get a shot of wheatgrass. My next juice today was a bit lighter than my first juice since it had a bit more fruit then veggies.
Yields app. 32 ounces
The last juice I had for today was very veggie rich. If you are new to juicing you may want to add more fruit. I don't like things really sweet so this juice was fine to me just as it was. It was a very dark, rich green juice where collard greens were the star. Collards are rich in calcium and Vitamin K.

See you back here tomorrow for Day 3!
