mean green day #9

This morning's juice was made of Farmer's Market goodness that dear husband picked up this weekend while I was out of town; three handfuls of baby greens and a basket of strawberries!  From Whole Foods were added two stalks of celery, two green apples, a peeled lemon, and ginger.

Last night, I made broiled Tilapia with bell peppers and garlic with brown rice on the side.  It was drenched in olive oil and smothered in butter and seasoned with dried oregano, parsley, and basil.  For lunch I just ate a raisin-bran muffin, a string cheese, and drank a protein shake.  I still feel hungry.

Reading the wikipedia stub on juice fasting made me think twice.  It stated that a common problem with these programs is a lack of dietary fiber.  I can agree, when I clean out my juicer I am throwing a lot of that in the trash.  I guess I should have started composting!

Other articles too highlight the dangers of juice diets. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/10/28/fashion/28Cleanse.html

It was humorous and probably the reason why I kept a blog about it myself.  So thanks Rory!
