JITLI - Day Three.

Before I get into these juices I decided to keep it REAL with you guys. Today was horrible juice day.  I woke up feeling really questionable. I felt tired, weak, hungry but not. My stomach was bubbling but I couldn't poop; it was rough y'all. I realized I haven't had a bowel movement since Day 1 and I was expecting the cleanse to help me go regularly so I was disappointed about that. I felt like maybe I was doing the cleanse wrong. I wasn't sleeping until 1-2 am, I wasn't drinking my juices in the specified order the book recommended. And I really HATE sweet potato juice, like its seriously the worse. Hopefully tomorrows a better day.

DAY 3

Deep Purple Juice. this juice was surprisingly sweet. I liked the flavor combo but after while I got tired of drinking it. The cabbage gave off a weird aftertaste (think of pineapple rine juice but with no flavor, just that tang bitterness). For that reason I wont make this juice again but I would consider playing with the cabbage juice to find better flavor combinations. Let me know in the comments down below if that's something you all would be interested in. :)

Love those Leafy Greens. This recipe called for Chard but my grocery store didn't carry any so I used beet greens as a substitute (may be why the color came out so funky). This juice was my favorite of the day but only because it was the best of the worst. Maybe if I used chard it would have come out better so I cant speak on this recipe whole-heartedly but I can say I wont be recreating it.

Sweet Beet. This juice had sweet potato so y'all should already know how feel about it. The starch in this juice was so thick that I had to strain it TWICE before drinking it. I don't have much to say for this juice expect it was the worst of the worst.. wont be doing this one again. What makes it worst is the recipe called for 2 sweet potatoes and I only used one and it still came out that bad.

*Because I did not create these recipes I'm a bit conflicted on whether I can disclose the actual measurements/recipe for these juices. However, I own all of the photos taken and you guys can kind of figure out the recipes from there. Or you could just buy the book ($8.00 at Barnes & Nobles).*
