Yesterday was difficult for me. I'd been invited to go to a nice restaurant for a birthday party with some co-workers, but since I'm juicing, I wouldn't be able to eat anything. This presented a real challenge.
All day I debated canceling, both because of the temptation to compromise and give in, and the misery of watching other people get to eat. Around the time I was supposed to be getting ready, I came across Dr. Oz's "Are You A Food Addict?" episode online. He asked five questions to help determine if you're addicted to food, one of which was "is food controlling your social life?"
This really took me by surprise. At that moment, I decided I was not going to let this overpower me. I ended up going and had a blast! I'm so glad that I chose to take control over my addiction.
Fortunately, today was a much better day for me. I felt good and full of energy.
I tried this juice recipe today and it tasted great! It's light and refreshing and full of flavor. This is the first time I tried juicing with mango and it was awesome. This mango didn't produce a lot of juice, but it did give the juice more flavor. I also switched out spinach for a head of Romaine lettuce, to ensure I'm keeping up with my leafy greens. It was quite good!
1 Braeburn apple
1 Honeycrisp apple
1/2 green bell pepper
1 head of Romaine lettuce
Let me know if you try this juice!
