Eating this way feels GREAT!! After three days of veggies, I don't have cravings, I'm not hungry and the only discomfort I find is that I'm thirsty. You would think with juice, you wouldn't have to drink water, but you do. In fact, juice doesn't replace water at all! So, I'm probably a little on the dehydrated side.
We bought a few bottles of Odwalla juice to get started so we didn't have to personally juice at every meal. Our favorites are the Original SUPERFOOD and Mango Tango We bought them at our local grocery store for about $8. Which seems like a crazy amount for juice, but it's lasted us for several servings. We've also tried a few juice recipes here.
I know my body, and just juice wouldn't swing, so I've been putting a tablespoon of Chia seeds in each glass and it's been no problem. The added protein, Omegas and fiber help balance out the carbohydrates. It truely is a blanced meal.
I have also been making my current favorite dish every night. (recipe below) No one is getting sick of it either so I'll probably make it again tomorrow night, or until we get through this pile of eggplant.
Spicy Thai Eggplant
Cook the following in 1 Tbs. olive oil until soft and nearly cooked through:
8-10 Japanese Eggplant
3-4 Jalapenos, seeded and demembraned
Wait on the garlic until the end or it could burn.
1 -2 Tbs. soy sauce
1 Tbs. sugar (optional) <--I've skipped this
3-4 sliced garlic cloves
Stir through and turn off heat.
Let sit for a few minutes so the basil leaves wilt.
