And I love this smoothie. But I’m ready to take it to the next level and so I decided to participate in a 3-day green smoothie cleanse with direction from nutritionist Meghan Telpner of the Making Love in the Kitchen blog.
I always fast once a year, on the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur. While difficult, I’ve always managed to get through until the fast is broken after sundown.
But this fast is different. There’s no higher moral purpose for doing it (though I might feel differently when it’s over). So why put myself through three days of a juice fast? It’s simple, really:
1. I’ve always wanted to try fasting for more than one day.
2. I like the idea of having it be a supervised fast, even if it’s from afar.
3. Meghan is going to supply participants with a very thorough information, so we will be well-prepared for this three day journey to spring wellness and health.
4. I don’t think I will be beyond hungry at any given point. I know this because I had to do a juice & light liquids fast for a full day before a recent colonoscopy and it wasn’t difficult at all. Whenever I got hungry, I drank juice or vegetable broth.
So, come on along. If you’re interested in joining us, please go here for further information.
