Cleansing…

Photo 269 out of 365 – “Liquid”

"Liquid" - Settings: ISO 400, f/4, 1/125 sec, 100mm macro lens

This photo is appropriate for today because today, my diet is consisting of only liquid.  Just for today.  I actually got my butt up this morning for an 8:30 am Pilates class in MIDTOWN!  Yes – that’s a big feat for me.   The class was great and it felt awesome to use those muscles again that have been laying dormant for the past year.  Yes abdominals… I’ve come back for you!  I haven’t forgotten you completely!  It’s been a while.

Meanwhile, I was feeling all good and wanted to grab a healthy breakfast before heading over to the nursing home for art class and I passed this juice place right in my neighborhood that I’ve never noticed.  Apparently, it’s been there for seven months… I don’t know how I haven’t seen it, but that happens in New York.

The place is called The Juice Press and they sell juices made from organic raw fruits, vegetables and spices.  They also offer a cleanse system, which on a whim, I decided to try today.  The deal is, you drink eight juices in a designated order and that’s it – no food – all day!  Also – lots of water and you can have decaf tea I guess.  So, I’m currently on my fifth juice of the day and MAN… this one is tough. Here are the ingredients:

  • ripe tomato
  • carrot
  • celery
  • beet
  • parsley
  • kale
  • spinach
  • lemon
  • pinch of cayenne
  • pinch of onion
  • pinch of garlic
  • pinch of sea salt

It’s called “drink your salad” – cute.  But I think it’s really pretty gag-worthy.  The next one’s just coconut water – and I’m quite looking forward to it after this garlic explosion in my mouth.  EW.

Anyway, I’ll let you know how I feel tomorrow!
