My friend Ynna recommended and let me borrow this book. It’s a book of unrelated short stories, making it a great travel companion because you can pick it up and put it down whenever you want without sacrificing continuity. I enjoyed learning about eclectic topics—radio stations, toxic waste dumps, etc.—that I wouldn’t have thought to research on my own. If you are looking for a good travel book I highly recommend this one.
This weekend we did a juice cleanse. I had been wanting to try one forever and finally decided to give it a shot. Here is what I learned from my first cleanse.
First, make sure you like the juices you are going to drink. Try out a couple of juices before you commit to the cleanse. I personally found most of the juices were not too tasty and had to plug my nose when drinking some. I did enjoy the “Joint Juice” and loved the “Health Nut”! I know of other people that did the same cleanse and really enjoyed all the juices.
Second, I found that you don’t get hungry. I figured I would be starving the whole day, but actually I felt great! I was never full after drinking a juice but also did not feel like I was lacking anything.
Third, you feel amazing after the cleanse. Once I finished the cleanse I had energy and woke up the next day with a clear mind.
Please note that everyone reacts differently, so it’s important that you listen to your body. I’m not sure if I will do a cleanse again, but I’m really glad I gave it a shot.
