The Juice Fast Day 1

This was an easy day and boy did I need it to recover from the day before.  The juice diet is not that hard at the moment.  I had some avocado and almonds at lunch to take the edge of my desire for bulk.  Dinner was a weird veggie concoction followed by a delicious mushy fruit juice with apple, pear and some mango.

Starting around lunch time and running through to bedtime I had a terrible splitting headache which my mate The Horsewoman says is natural when you are "detoxing".

Still it isn't too hard so far...
