The first day of the juicing diet went well. I didn't throw a tantrum and I didn't starve. I'm noticing that the biggest part of this cleansing is the willpower needed to turn down sandwiches, pasta, roast beef, etc. However, I keep telling myself that I only have 6 more days.
The juice de jour is a smorgasbord of vegetables and fruits: spinach, celery, cucumbers, green apples, blueberries, peaches, pears, and an orange. Yep. All of them together. Taste is not that bad. Color is questionable.
The soup had the right amount of spice from the ginger and onion, the proper amount of acidity from the lemon, and plenty of sweetness from the tomatoes and carrots. The basil was hidden behind the other flavors so I may leave it out next time.
