Day 11, Grapefruit Juice Heaven!

Posted Jun 26 2009 5:59pm

I slept pretty good last night but I’ve slept better–especially during long juice fasts. I’m feeling fine today, though!!


Warm lemon water is what I drank first. Half an hour or so later, I decided I’d have fresh grapefruit juice. If you’re a grapefruit lover, you’ll adore fresh grapefruit juice!

Two Grapefruits


100% Grapefruit Juice


It made about 14 ounces–all for me!! :-)




Instead of another juice, I had a glass of water with organic apple cider vinegar and my daily dose (a tablespoon) of E3 Live.


I felt like switching things up for my lunch juice and I came up with a….

Cabbage Concoction


chunk of my Amish-grown cabbage (shown here )

handful of spinach

2 kale leaves

small apple

half of a lemon (peel, seeds and all)

1 carrot

1 celery stalk

nob ginger (about an inch thick)

handful of parsley

Love the Colors!




I actually loved the spicy flavor of this green juice but if you don’t like ginger or spicy flavors, you’ll want to leave the ginger out of this one or use way less.


No afternoon snack today. I just had some iced herbal tea with lemon.


I sat out that container of frozen pineapple-strawberry juice from yesterday earlier today and just had a cup of that. I felt like having a simple dinner, so I did!

That’s it for day 11. And I’m happy with how it went! :-)
