Somer & Pepe, oh wise and experienced ones - I'd like to keep to a pretty clean post and pre-fast diet for my next extended cleanse starting Oct. 1. Now that I kind of know what to expect, I'm trying to better prepare myself for a longer fast next time. I've been juicing mornings and some late afternoons for the last week and half since ending my first 9.75-day fast (got the juicer on afternoon of day 10 and didn't make it through the evening!). I've been able to experiment well with the fruit juices in the morning (Somer - thanks for the coconut milk tip), but have had a really hard time incorporating veggie juices. I've played with cucumber, carrots, celery, kale, spinach, etc. Ick! Ick! Do you two have any decent veggie juice recipes? I've never been a V8 drinker so tomatoe juice turns my stomach. Plus, tomatoes are really fruit, right?
Since I haven't been able to make many veggie juices, I've really come to enjoy raw veggies in wraps and sandwiches with hummus, etc. But I know, I may not be getting quite the level of veggies I probably should for nutritional and cleansing purposes. So, one or two veggie juice recipes would be great. Especially juice recipes that you have tried and are able to get down okay. I have bought "Juices for Healing", but that one doesn't have recipes just preparation guidelines. And the online recipes I've found focus mostly on fruit juice combos with some veggies. So I'm not sure if I should or shouldn't> mix fruits and veggies since there are different schools of thought on that one. I know this is the Master-Cleanse forum, but the juicing forum is woefully underused. AND, I know both of you juice pre and post Master-Cleanse fasts. Thanks guys and to anyone else who may have suggestions!
I will say that I feel fabulous after the first Master-Cleanse and am really looking forward to the second MC and more extensive cleansing. I'm kind of wanting to jump right in again, but I remember Pepe indicating that a good four week or more break between fasts is a good idea to help get the metabolism balanced out again.
