Confessions on a juice feast
Cravings for a cheese sandwich? Well that’s something I didn’t expect. If you talk about cravings, most people think of chocolate, but over the past few days it was cheese that I wanted, in fact cheese and pickle to be precise.
So for the first week of this juice feast, it was the emotions that I had to deal with and this week it’s cravings.
Those of you who know me, or visit this site often know that I am a complete advocate for greens. I love them! We should all be green goddesses, so why was it then that I forgot my own advice?
For a couple of days I had been juicing, but hadn’t included any greens!! The shock, I know. When I look back I realise that it was on these days that the craving for cheese, or should that be fat, took hold. As soon as I started to juice greens the cravings went!
So even if you are not juicing and find yourself craving fatty, stodgy foods include some green in your diet and watch the craving disappear. This doesn’t mean that you can’t have the fatty foods that you want, but it does mean that you can control your cravings and you can make the CHOICE.
Here are three of my favourite and delicious ways to add greens to your day:
Juice: Delicious Green Lemonade
Smoothie: Strawberry and Spinach Smoothie
Salad: 3-Step Salad
