Day 22 + AMAZING Watermelon

Posted Jul 15 2009 6:42pm

Day 22 of this 30-day juice fast started out with warm lemon water.

Breakfast

I had some leftover watermelon (from the 4th of July and my Dad’s birthday picnic) so I thought I should use it up and not let it go to waste. It was half of a watermelon, and I juiced the rind, seeds, and all.

Watermelon is soooooooooooo healthy for us! It contains the following vitamins: C, A, B6, B1. It also provides antioxidants, lycopene, magnesium, and potassium.

“Watermelon is not only great on a hot summer day, this delectable thirst-quencher may also help quench the inflammation that contributes to conditions like asthma, atherosclerosis, diabetes, colon cancer, and arthritis.”– WH Foods

Watermelon may also protect against macular degeneration. How cool and refreshing is that information??!! :-)

Watermelon Juice

lots of watermelon juice

I ended up with 6 cups of watermelon juice + enough to fill my Amazing Grass shaker cup, which I added a scoop of berry flavored Amazing Grass SuperFood powder to.

Snack

For a snack, I had my daily shot of E3 Live and a glass of water with organic apple cider vinegar.

Lunch

I enjoyed a(nother!) yummy glass of watermelon juice for lunch… I added a scoop of the berry flavored Amazing Grass powder for some extra oomph. :-)

I also had a lot of cucumbers to use up so cucumber juice, it was! I (for some crazy reason) forgot to count how many cucumbers I used for this juice recipe. (I’m thinking maybe it was 5-7 of ‘em???)

Cucumbers are good for you:

“The flesh of cucumbers is primarily composed of water but also contains ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and caffeic acid, both of which help soothe skin irritations and reduce swelling. Cucumbers’hard skin is rich in fiber and contains a variety of beneficial minerals including silica, potassium and magnesium.” –WH Foods

Besides those yummy benefits, cucumbers are great for your skin, (may) help lower your blood pressure, and contain vitamins C, A, and folate and fiber. They also provide tryptophan–and they taste sooooooooooooooooooooooo delicious when they’re juiced!

Cucumber juicing tip:

When juicing cucumbers, you’ll want to remove the peel IF you’ve bought non-organic cucumbers that have been waxed. If they’re organic, leave that peel on–it’s very beneficial!
