Need some recipes...and some support
Hello. Brand new here, and new to raw food.
Today is day 9 of my first juice fast.
I'm doing okay with the willpower. I still cook burgers, etc., for my family, then I sit with them and drink my juice while they eat.
I'm a little disappointed that the weight isn't coming off faster. Everything I've read said to expect a pound a day. I've only lost 5 pounds so far.
Also, not meaning to get into the area of TMI, I haven't had any of the giant bowel movements I was told to expect.
The real problem I'm having is the taste. The fruit drinks are great, of course.
I managed to experiment and come up with a V8 copycat that I like.
The green drinks are a problem. One recipe I can choke down is kale, spinach, carrot, celery, apple.
But I had a cabbage-based drink last night that almost made me throw up. I couldn't get it down.
I've scoured the web but haven't really found anything.
Is it just something I have to get used to? Or are there some recipes out there that aren't disgusting.?
