This is not the kind of shot you want to do out of anyone’s belly button. Actually, it’s probably the equivalent of doing a shot out of an 85 year olds belly button.
note: I’m not be dramatic.
The “green drinks” are by far the worst part about this fast. They’re also the whole reason behind the fast. These 10 days wouldn’t be so hard if I could drink all kinds of fruit juice the whole time. But because most fruits actually have a lot of sugar in them, they need to be limited. I juice fruit when I need a nice sugar high, but I miss my chocolate high. It’s just not the same.
In the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, the green drink they are always showing is…
4 stalks of celery
1 ginger root – (thumb size)
2 green apples
6 kale leaves
This particular green drink isn’t that bad. I wouldn’t say I like it, but I don’t need a chaser afterwards. I’ve made a list(that keeps growing) of nasty greens that make me come really close to puking. I no longer can drink these out of a full glass. But, because they are good for me I decided not to cut them out completely.
I’ve found that the best chaser for me is to juice 2 lemons and mix it in a glass of seltzer(you could use water.) The lemon is pretty strong, but it needs to be to get the rabbit food taste out of your mouth. You’ll probably want to drink out of a straw too, to protect your teeth from the lemon that can take enamel off. I don’t know about you but I like my teeth, they get me out of things sometimes. Like speeding tickets and stuff.
Ps. do you like my shot glass?I know it looks awfully familiar to a regular glass. I thought about using the tiny medicine cup that came with the nyquil, but people already think I’m ghetto. By people, I mean husband. And everyone at Wholefoods. And my family. And all our neighbors.
