First time juicing, for real
So today was my first real attempt at an all vegan day, I had like 3 apples half a bundle of celery, banana, orange and a bottle of carrot juice (which I paid six bucks for) before realizing it was flash pasteurized. Seriously, has there been a single case in history of someone dying of carrot poisoning?
I made it till dinner until I caved but I had some high energy all day long, specially considering I was running errands since ten am (early for me, hey)
So the real corker is I picked up a cheapo juicer at the local thrift store for next to nothing just to get an idea as to what I'm in for before I invest real money.
I put some cucumber, spinach, celery & apple into it and topped it off with some of the carrot juice for taste. The taste was a little off putting at first, but nothing I couldn't work with. Thing I don't understand is 10-15 minutes later my body is sayin: stop drinkin this stuff. I can't even finish what was originally about a cup and a half of juice?
Is this sort of reaction normal? I don't feel sick to my stomach per-se, I had no reaction to large amounts of vegetables by themselves, nor the carrot juice alone. The only variable really is the spinach, but then again, I've eaten massive bowls of raw spinach salad with no problems at all. I love raw spinach.
I'm stumped, perhaps my body is just not ready for this level of un-inhibited vitamin consumption. Is this normal? Also within about 20 minutes I crashed big time, as in I almost passed out in the middle of a conversation with someone.
