We all have that one person that motivates us to reach for the moon, stars and beyond.
For me that’s my Mama. There isn’t too much I can say that I want to do for my businesses and she isn’t in my corner cheering me on. I have learned so much about myself over the last few years. It’s amusing no matter how much I once fought it, I am Linda’s daughter and we are very much alike.
Our mannerisms, the constant song in our hearts. (I can’t sing a lick, as my husband often tells me but I always do anyways lol.) We laugh too much, smile too hard, and believe the best in everyone. I even get my love of journals and pens from her, yep she’s the one who created the stationery habit. She makes me believe in myself and has helped me stay focused on building It Starts With Juice to where it is today.
Getting older brings many things into focus, and to know she is so proud of me makes me beyond proud of myself and I want to cross one of the biggest goals off my list.
60 Day Juice Fast, ah my old friend we meet again. I have tried to complete this process and always end up changing my mind after a few days, sliding into my semi fast mode. (Juice for the majority of the day, then a healthy dinner.) There is always a reason to not fully commit, and I feel ready to take it head on. My birthday just passed which meant most of August was spent in celebration(read too many carbs, sugar, and other naughty tasty things.) Panama City and New Orleans were great, and I could live in New Orleans cafes.
I am committed to juice fast from September 14-November 13.
This will include:
*At least 64 ounces of juice per day
*At least one gallon of water daily
*Journaling daily, Blogging 2-3x a week
*Sharing recipes 2-3x a week
*At least 30 minutes of exercise each day.
*Veggies only as snacks when needed
*3 Free Passes

1 Large Bunch Kale(7-8 Leaves)
2 Medium Cucumbers
2 Cups Strawberries
Juice and enjoy!!!
Strawberries and kale will give you the least juice so sandwich them between harder fruits and veggies such as the cucumbers or apples to get the most juice. The recipe above yields about 32 ounces and I use a Norwalk 280.
Happy Tuesday guys! Today’s recipe is Shocktart which is a delicious summer blend.If you are on medication substitute the grapefruit for more oranges.

To Make 48 Oz.

Today has been a busy day for consults, so just having juice to grab was a big help. Dinner is shaping up to be a salad and finishing up work on some other projects.
Enjoy the juice!!!
A 21 day juicing challenge. One week is juices and salads/vegetarian meals. The remaining two weeks are all juice.
Do I need a juicer?
Yes, the majority of the plan will be based on juices, so a least a basic model will be needed.
Can I use a blender?
It’s not recommended. Blendtec, Vitamix, Ninja, and Nutribullets are all blenders, there is a different program for that.
How much weight can I expect to lose?
This varies for everyone, if you stick with the plan though, average loss is 15-25 lbs.
What if I have food allergies?
There is a substitute list provided.
Where do I get the jars?
Most grocery stores carry mason jars.
How much will it make?
The recipes provided within the plan are meant to make 48-64 ounces depending on which week. If you have a high speed juicer, its recommeded adding extra veggies to your list to get the needed amount of juice.
