Juice Cleanse

Mr. P. spent the day in bed yesterday after coming down with a violent stomach flu. It was odd to see him sitting in one place for so long. But at one point he said to me, "Mom, I really like just relaxing in bed. I see why you want to do this." Ah, he's starting to appreciate the joys of relaxing!

Since I couldn't leave the house yesterday, I decided to do a one day juice cleanse. I could have made these concoctions in the juicer, but I didn't have any ingredients as I missed my weekly farmer's market trip yesterday, so after dropping Doodle off at school, I headed straight to the Pressed Juicery for a bundle of organic liquid goodness.

Normally I am way to hungry to survive on juice, but since the day consisted on watching Scooby Doo and reading Harry Potter, I figured I could handle it (i did sneak in a bagel chip or two towards the end of the day.)

Here's what I consumed can follow the ingredients to make your own versions at home:

Kale, spinach, romaine, parsley, cucumber, celery, apple and lemon

beet, apple, lemon and ginger (This one was my absolute favorite)

grapefruit and mint

coconut meat, coconut water, cacao and mint

chlorophyll water

Aloe Vera Water

In addition to lazing about with  my sick child...I spent a lot of time running to the potty...these juices move right through you!!!
