Juice Fasting Day 1

Juiceman, Jr.

Juiceman, Jr.

I have decided to eat nothing and drink only fresh organic fruits and vegetables that I juice myself in my new Juiceman, Jr. juicer. I’m not sure how long the juice fast will be, between 10-20 days. I am going to chronicle my experience here to keep track of progress and recipes, and to benefit anyone who might want to try a juice fast. I will be listing my “meals”  in terms of ingredients. The quantity is dependent on personal preference and availability. I just used what I had that I thought would be good combinations and added quantity until it looked like I had enough juice.


  • Juiceman, Jr., purchased on sale at Target for $29.00 (on amazon.com for $73.42)
  • Chef’s Knife
  • Paring Knife
  • Utility Knife

I am purchasing my fruits and vegetables at the East End Coop, primarily. My other options are Right by Nature Natural Foods Market and Trader Joe’s. There is also the Whole Foods Market, but I find that too expensive, and the Market District Giant Eagle, which I find too crowded.

eefcResources I am using for my research include the following books and websites, more to be added as my research grows
