Drinking the Rainbow

 

More energy, better sleep, improved focus and reduced body fat  . . . .  in less than 3 days??!?

 

2020 was the worse year on record for most of the world so there was nothing needed more than a firestarter to get the big 21 by the horns.

🍒My kickstart of choice was 3 days of juicing.

🍏Not a detox but a quickfix plan consisting of 2 smoothies and 3 juices per day.

🍐All fresh fruit and vegetables – easy to source and simple to prepare

 🍊And what happened?

Instantly I felt like I was taking control again. 

Immediately you look forward to new things away from food and alcohol. 

OK, so, I lost a lot of fluid in the first couple of days which was a lot of post Christmas fluid retention. I saw a noticeable change in body shape by the end of day 2. I felt much cleaner and healthier.

🧘‍♀️

The process 

Juicing has a meditative nature and gives me the joy some people are lucky to get from cooking. Quick chopping, easy clean up and zero thought into presentation gets a big thumbs up in my little kitchen.

Is it easy? – No one said it is easy. However: no choice = no decisions. So just get on with it. You’ll actually be amazed at how productive you are when food is not a distraction.  I enjoyed it.

And after:

You reset and replace many bad habits in 3 days. Drinking alcohol, too much tea, eating refined foods. You remember that simpler and healthier food can be tastier. (and I love sweets and cakes)

I lost the ‘covering’ that had crept on from the December binge. Exercise and a healthy diet since have dropped a few more kgs.

I felt more organised with increased productivity and was able to focus on tasks in hand for longer. This is also a benefit of fasting . Studies have found it had a powerful effect on brain health as well as all round better health by fighting inflammation.

The colour


Everyday you are drinking the rainbow. Leafy greens, sunset pinks and  oranges.  What’s not to love?

There are many more benefits from juicing as part of a healthy lifestyle.  It’s not for everyone but if you are interested in this plan DM me and I’ll send the link and more info:)
