Juice fast: Day One.

I woke up yesterday morning feeling just plain nasty. Heavy, bloated, sluggish, stanky. Determined the best course of action would be a three-day juice fast, which I would have to start the next day (today) on account of Wednesday being Pablo’s night. Decided to look up some juice fasting basics online, thereby violating the Cardinal Rule of Internet Use: Thou shalt not seek out credible information online concerning topics of interest to holistic wackadoos.

Do you know how difficult it is to find information about juice fasting that doesn’t also advocate pumping gallons of water &/or coffee up your butt (yet oddly enough, forbids you actually drinking coffee), consuming things like pureed barley grass (yuck) or "liquid amino acids" (double yuck) or shelling out $30 for "Dr." Poppycock’s Compleat Guide to Juicemaking and Wholistic Whealth (triple yuck)?

So I’m going it alone… old-school… just me, my blender and several bags of frozen mixed berries from Safeway. Salud!
