Juice Feasting Day 1

I am looking out my window at a beautiful winter wonderland. It has been snowing here all day. It is the wet fluffy kind of snow. I live in a wooded area and the tree branches are covered in white, the usual dead of winter look is clean and white.
Today my husband and I are beginning our first day of juice feasting. Our aim is to do this for three days. This really takes some mental preparation.
I struggled with my thoughts last night about my morning smoothie. It is so easy to become addicted to something. I literally prayed that I would not fail. My prayer was answered and I have gotten through the day just drinking juices. My stomach has been making some noise today, mostly airy. I have not been hungry.
My husband is on the juice too, but he has been hungry, so I keep placing the juice in front of him.

When I got up this morning I had
16 oz of Grapefruit ginger juice and did a 55 min Yoga practice.

Followed by~
Green Juice 32 oz
Orange, Grapefruit, Carrot, ginger juice 20 oz

Raw Mojito~Penni Shelton's recipe below 10 oz.
8 oz of orange, grapefruit and ginger juice

Green Juice 32 oz

My husband has had at least a gallon of all of the combinations above excluding the Raw Mojito

Raw Mojito~Penni Shelton
I modified mine by using raw honey & ginger kombucha and only made 1/2

the juice of three organic limes
a bunch of muddled fresh mint
a good squeeze of agave nectar
16 ounces of rejuvelac or kombucha

Place all ingredients into a martini shaker and gently mix. Pour into chilled martini or wine glasses. Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint.
