Reboot with Joe Day Two

I woke up relieved that my headache was gone and I was surprisingly happy to continue on with my Reboot with Joe cleanse. I am not the kind of girl who usually gets past one day of any cleanse, so this was a surprise. Headache gone, rested, we brought out the ingredients for our morning juice. We’re finding that the juices that only require four ingredients are more appealing and so much quicker and easier to make.

I forgot the mid-morning coconut water again because I went to the gym, came home hungry and went straight to the lunch juice. We decided to repeat a favorite from yesterday for lunch today. I have been drinking more water today and feeling surprisingly energized!

Early evening I had an Elevate Me Bar, I felt hungry and likely it was as a result of lifting weights earlier in the day. I think it’s important to respond to your body when it’s telling you it needs more fuel.  Elevate Me Bars can be purchased in bulk at Costco, they’re one of my favorite protein bars because they’re made in North Vancouver, Canada and ingredients are so pure. They are made with dried fruits, nuts and natural protein. They’re also one of the highest sources of protein I’ve found on store shelves.. that still taste good. You can also find them at London Drugs and whole foods grocery stores. So this protein bar was my substitute for the evening Dessert Juice.

It’s been two days and I’m starting to feel like I need to seriously have regular food. I’m wondering if I’ll wake up ready to juice again for the third and last day. Given that my goal was never to lose weight but to feel healthier, I feel I’m really getting the “hang” of making juices and can see that I could make them using what I’ve got in the fridge and not necessarily from a recipe. The benefits of doing this have been fantastic, I can also see that juicing would be a great healthy quick lunch or snack, but supper would definitely be “real” food after this cleanse is over! I can’t wait to crunch into a salad!!
