Preparing for the Feast!

I have been happy to see that some people are very interested in taking on this challenge and very happy to see some people wanting to add Juice to their diets. Because of this I have decided to share my personal shopping list for juicing. There are times when I add ALL of these ingredients to my Juice! Experiment! Have Fun! Everyday will be different! I do have a CAUTION: Be aware of how much Ginger you add to your juice. You do not need allot, and too much may turn you off altogether. Some experts say to juice only vegetables for one drink, and Fruits for another. I Juice it all together. This makes it easy for a beginner because the fruits will make it more fun! You will develop a taste for what you like to have in your Juice. Listen to your BODY, You already know what you need :) Don't confuse Juicing with smoothies. They are not the same, so beware of soft fruits and veggies in the Juicer; this could lead to problems. If you really want banana in your Juice, bust out the blender and mix it with your juice:)
Here Goes!

There are many things to consider for this Fast. I urge you to do your research , there are volumes of information Juice fasting all over the internet.

You will need a few things:

A Juicer.

You may already have one buried in the cabinet, or you may want to purchase one. If you don't have the funds for that, talk to you neighbors. Chances are someone has on on your block that has one and would be willing to lend it to you. When you return it, you will have inspired them to use it as well! Jack La Lane juicer will do, their are better so it really depends on your finances, (or what you neighbor has).

Vegetables and Fruits.

Of course I recommend getting all organic vegetables. The only down fall is they are expensive. Shop local food markets, like CSA's or Farmers markets. They usually have organic vegetables far more affordable then store bought organics ( or at least they should be). Often Organics Vegetables and fruits are shipped in from far away states and countries, driving up the cost. This would be a real good time to start a juicing garden for the future. You will develop a very good habit and will need to feed it:)

You may have to start with store bought conventional vegetables. The key here is to be aware of GMO and washing. As the fast goes on and you are buying zero packaged goods and factory meats, you will have more $ for Organic vegetables.

Again, Check with neighbors and see if they grow vegetables. Often time the home garden has excess and they will be happy to share with you or trade.

Here is Our List:

Cabbage (red and green)


















Pepper ( sweet )




Dont Juice! Only Blend list:




And soft flesh should be blended not Juiced ( or you can just eat em :)

I hope this helps you get prepared for the Fast. If you have any questions, advice or input, We would LOVE to hear it!
