10 Day Juice Fast Day 10: The end is here!

So it’s the last day of the juice fast. I’m feeling good. Normally I might be sad with something coming to an end, but I’m really looking forward to having some food again. It’s been a great cleanse and detox, but I’m ready for the food this Christmas! Here’s how the last day of my juicing detox went down.

Breakfast:

  • 1 small golden beet (optional)
  • 3 kale leaves
  • 1 pear
  • 2 apples
  • 3 carrots
This one was really good. Very green, but oh so simple to make. I love me some green goodness in the morning, don’t you?
Lunch:

  • 1/2 bag fresh cranberries
  • 1 peeled orange
  • 2 apples
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 stalks celery
It’s the holiday season and since I had fresh cranberries in my fridge, I was excited to experiment a little. I wasn’t sure how cranberries and orange would taste with cucumber and celery, but it was actually really good – wholesome tasting and nicely tart. For those of you that don’t like tart drinks, add an extra apple or two to the mixture. If you want a really tart drink, which this is not, then add another 1/2 bag of cranberries.
Dinner:

  • 2 peeled lemons
  • 1 peeled orange
  • 1 pineapple
  • 2 kale leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 banana (optional – blend it up in the juice with your blender)

Dinner was just wonderful with the banana flavor in this juice. I did a banana to help me transition into eating food tomorrow morning. I’ll probably start out the day tomorrow with a smoothie (either that or just go crazy with eggs and waffles – who knows – it’s been 10 days!!).

While the temptation to eat has always been there, I do want to take a few sentences and tell you how I’ve felt on this journey. It has been wonderful! I’ve felt really good, full, satisfied, energetic and have enjoyed every juice that I’ve tried. It’s been a great experience, and am looking forward to doing it again come January. Until then….bring on the pumpkin pie and Turkey!

Recommended snack: Eat a few nuts and a banana for dinner, especially if you left the banana out of the juice. This will help you transition back into eating food.

Breakfast on day 11: Eat something light. Toast with a little butter and an apple is ideal for transitioning you back into food. If you’re up for it, have a cooked egg for breakfast as well.

  1. I’ll try my darnest to do this with you since the temptation is definitely there at my job and household.

  2. You have been so motivating – I am really wanting to do this after the holidays! Did your husband do the 10 days with you? Also, are these recipes for one person? Seems like some of them would make quite a bit of juice!
