now that’s just mean

One of the motivating factors of the juicing was watching the documentary, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.  Laying in bed, nursing a migraine, jaw pain, the chills, and overall body soreness (I surmised these were all symptoms of the beginning of the Master Cleanse), I popped open my laptop to watch anything interesting on Hulu.  I came across this film about Joe Cross, an overweight Aussie who goes on a juice-only diet and travels across the US documenting his journey.

Fast-forward three days later.  While I am not on a juice-only cleanse, I am predominately juice-only.  Today I decided to try Joe’s very own recipe called Mean Green.

2 apples

4 stalks of celery

1 cucumber

1 thumb of ginger

6 kale leaves

1/2 lemon


EH.  This actually tasted more earthy than the previous Can’t Beet It juice.  It was so, well, repulsive to me, I couldn’t bring myself to finish the 30-ouncer.  Maybe it was the kale.  Was never  big kale fan.

Later in the day, I followed the Mean with the Liver Scrubber.

1 apple

3 beet greens

1 beet

4 carrots

1 celery stalk

1/2 thumb of ginger

This was way better.  I thought I’d never, ever hear myself saying, “more beets, please.”
