Detox – Day 14

We’ve now crossed into the homestretch.  14 days down, 8 to go.   Yesterday, I shared a bit about what we’ve learned.  Today, what we’ve felt. (I promise I won’t get too graphic!)

The changes in our health mirror the changes in lifestyle.  If this was a hop for me, it was a great leap – think Grand Canyon-sized – for Dave. The changes in our health are commensurate.

I’ve felt lighter, less bloated, and well, let’s just say, I”go” several times a day.

Dave has seen improvements in his propensity for migraines, morning sneezing attacks (we once counted 17 one morning!), and yes, his system is also running at top speed.  His migraines have stopped and he’s not had a morning sneezing attack. Woohoo!

We not felt much more energetic and in fact, we do feel a bit drained from time to time.  This week we are adding spirulina to our juices to add more protein.  This should help with our energy levels. 

Jack Lalane juicer
Our new juicer - how beautiful!

Small breakthrough today in the juicing department: I made a juice with spinach that tasted reasonably good.  It’s my first successful foray into green juicing, although the color was more yellow than green.

Today’s menu included:


  • Apple/pear/cantaloupe/sesame seed/ginger/mint juice – not bad
  • Chai Rooibus tea

Snack before yoga

  • Avocado

Mid-afternoon snack

  • Mango/orange/cucumber/spinach juice – my first with real greens and it was good!
  • Almonds
  • Figs


  • Whole grain organic wrap with guacamole
  • Spaghetti squash w/tomatoes
  • Asparagus
  • Dates for dessert

This week we move back to one juice per day and two living food meals.  Who knows?  Maybe we will continue to juice twice for a day or two.

  1. What kind of juicer did you buy (I can’t see a label on the photo)?

    I’ve done a lot of research and have decided to upgrade mine from a centrifugal-style one to a cold-process vertical single-augur style (more than 2x the price, but it promises to be a LOT less burdensome to clean and theoretical creates less oxidation in the juice so you can juice in batches that stay fresh rather than having to play the game for every single meal).

    Maybe once it gets delivered we can all get together to do a live demo/comparison of all the different juicers …

    1. We were borrowing one, so we just bought a basic Jack Lalane model. It’s worked out nicely so far, and for $70 after all of the sales and discounts, it seemed like a reasonable gamble.
