seven days juice detox: day 1

What I love most about a juice detox is the crazy amount of extra energy it gives to me. Well, the first two days I tend to feel a bit cold (time to have a cup of hot tea or water) and I find it difficult to see someone in my kitchen preparing seducing delicacies....grrrr. That's  the reason why I decided to substitute at least one juice a day for a bowl of soup.
All the juice recipes of this week are taken from or inspired by Jason Vale.

 8:00     cup of hot water with a slice of lemon

10:00     Ruby Tuesday     

13:00     pumpkin and onion soup

16:00     Minty Sunshine

18:00     another cup of pumpkin and onion soup

19:00 - 21:00   yoga (very demanding, a lot of warrior poses today!)

before sleep : cup of warm homemade almond milk sweetened with Manuka honey

The recipes:

Ruby Tuesday

1/4 medium pineapple
2 carrots
1 bulb beetroot
1-2 cm fresh ginger
4 sprigs fresh basil

Juice all the ingredients.

Minty Sunshine

2 oranges
2 carrots
1-2 cm fresh ginger
4 sprigs fresh mint

Juice all the ingredients.

Pumpkin and onion soup

1 small hokkaido pumpkin, cut in pieces
1 red onion, chopped
enough water to cover the vegetables
instant vegetable powder

Cook the vegetables until soft, blend and season to your liking. I seasoned with my beloved Sal de Ibiza con chili.

 All the day long I drank cups of herbal tea or water when I felt like it.
