Juice Cleanse Shopping List

61 Today (12)

 

So as promised today I am off to a positive start after a weekend of celebrating my birthday with family and friends. The countdown is on until I visit Julie, my youngest daughter who is in Spain on Erasmus, so the next few weeks I am really going to take care of number 1 and make positive changes. As I blogged about in my last blog one of the habits I want to get back into is juice fasting once a week so as promised here is the shopping list for the juice fast I will be doing on Wednesday. I have already had lots of people who want to join me and if you are one of them be sure to check in on my Facebook page where we will all be supporting each other throughout the day. Below is a full list of all you will need to join in, you will need a juicer to make the juices, a blender for the soup and the ingredients below and your all set!

Change Simply Juice Cleanse Shopping List;

  • 2 Lemons
  • 3 Cucumbers
  • 1 Bunch of kale (or alternatively a bag of spinach)
  • 1 Bunch of celery
  • 1 nub of ginger
  • 1 Melon for soup on the evening of the fast - It's simple & delicious

Extra liquids for the cleanse;

  • Coconut water - most shops stock this now
  • Herbal teas - I love mint or lemon and ginger tea. Its important to stay hydrated
  • Drink plenty of water (preferably filtered or distilled water) throughout the day.

So make sure to stock up between today and tomorrow and we will be all systems go on Wednesday morning from 8 am. I will post the times and recipes tomorrow so those of you heading out to work early can be well prepared :)

Here's some positivity for your day ahead as promised last week :)

      Delighted you are going to join in on the Juice cleanse Liza. 1 juice cleanse a week is a great way of giving your digestive system a rest, personally I feel great when I do a daily cleanse every week :)

    I would like to do the Cleanse on Wednesday.
    What do you think of the new NutriBullet? Is it a masticating juicer? Certainly seems much more handy in the kitchen than the large juicers. I would love to know what your thoughts are of it!

      Hi Rose Glad to hear you want to join in the juice cleanse. The Nutribullit is a blender and not the same as a juicer. When you blend food it takes more digestion time where as juices are absorbed readily by the body within 15-30 minutes. So all in all a juicer is the better option for your health. Have a look at this one its really sturdy http://www.changesimply.com/shop/products/juicers/solo-star-masticating-juicer.html

    Hi Bernadette, I'm sure you are sick of people asking you about the Nutri-Bullet. I see your reply to Rose on 1st Sept and just want to check something with you...does it really matter whether the nutrients are absorbed within 15/20 mins or take more time to digest i.e. are the benefits not ultimately the same? I have been a fan of yours for a long time and bought the Green Star masticating juicer as recommended in one of your books a number of years ago but have to say that with 3 kids and a hectic schedule it is hard to be enthusiastic about juicing as it is a very heavy and cumbersome machine and the cleaning of it is fiddly and a bit too messy.
    The kids have been asking me to get a nutri-bullet but I don't want to invest in another gadget without getting some sound advice from you first. KInd regards, Caroline

    Hi Caroline, a huge percentage of the nutrients disappear within the first minute and a half with blending. Also as you have to digest the food it will ferment in the body. The heat from the blade kills the enzymes in the vegetables in comparison to a masticating juicer which uses pressure to expell the juice. With juicing you dont struggle to digest the food and the nutrients go straight into the cells, remember for optimum health you need to drink the juice straight away as you loose nutrients with oxidation. I keep my juicer on the draining board at all times so I dont have to lug it in and out of presses. I also run water through it between juices to clean out heavy debris and then I wash it fully at the end of each day. Once you get into a routine it doesnt take up too much time. Smoothies can be good for kids packed lunches etc but I would make sure to be getting their juice into them also :)

      Thanks Bernadette for the very speedy reply regarding the juicer! Will dust off the cobwebs and use it!! Much appreciated! Just one more question on a totally different topic....I rem reading in one of your first books that having changed your diet etc that you found you no longer needed to wear reading glasses. I had perfect vision for a long time but very suddenly found it deteriorating to the point where I need reading glasses. The optician says this can't be reversed but having read your comment I wonder does this have to be the case? Kind regards, Caroline
