Day 6 – Today, I woke up feeling much better than I have been since I begun this journey. Fresh apple juice works wonders to make the digestive track much happier. I also have a bit more energy today. No napping today.
In North Carolina, where we lived for a while, Kale is served at a lot of restaurants. I tried it I didn’t care for it much too sharp a taste for me. Yet, the nutritional value of this one leafy vegetable is amazing.
One cup of chopped Kale provides; 33 calories and 9% of the daily value of calcium, 206% of vitamin A, 134% of vitamin C, and a whopping 684% of vitamin K. It is also a good source of minerals copper, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorus according to http://www.webmd.com. With all that information we will have to re-consider planting kale no matter how much we dislike its taste. Maybe we should find an Organic Heirloom Kale seed. With an old-time sweet flavor before it was marketed for mass delivery or maybe it’s an acquired taste that you get when you’re a grown up!
We’ll just have to find new ways to doctor it with healthy options and some tasteful spices. I’ve been drinking organic kale, can’t imagine how bad non-organic tastes. Organic vegetables taste so much better than non-organic. Maybe part of the problem I’m having with kale as a juice, once I’m finished juicing I’ll have to try it whole.
Day 7 – Woke up this morning feeling really good. Looking forward to a good and productive day. Weighed in this morning lost 1.5 lbs since last weigh in. Making a grand total of 8.81 lbs. Hopefully, the weight loss continues after I return to real food. After this giving up sugar and processed foods is going to be easy peasy! I’ve been doing the Yoga on Wii Fit, I’m such a beginner it’s hilarious. But I got through the entire program not as well as some, but I tried everything. Later on this afternoon I wanted something to eat soooo bad! So I did it, I ate ice! Not like food I know, but I had something to eat so to speak! The frozen water kept me on my path to my goal – 10 days. Three days left!
