Juice Detox Day 4 of 7

Things are getting easier as the days go on, my energy is raising by the hour and I have significantly less hunger pangs. I was getting some bad leg cramps yesterday after working out which was solved after getting a quart or so of water in me. I have to keep reminding myself to drink more water. More more more! Recently I have done some research and discovered that homemade stock is allowed in a juice fast. I wasn't sure it would be, because of the cooking, but damn am I glad because I was definitely craving something warm. I also find it easier to get in my vegetables through a stock than a vegetable juice.

Sweet Red
2 mangos
2 kiwis
Juice of 2 blood oranges
1 red bell pepper

Green Juice
1/2 pineapple
2 apples
1 kiwi
1 cup broccoli florets
2 cups spinach

Tropical Punch
1 pineapple
1 papaya
1 banana
1 tangerine

Mushroom Stock
3 cups mushrooms (I used cremini and shiitake)
2 carrots
2 celery stalks
2 cups broccoli florets
1 head spinach
1 onion
3 garlic cloves

Keep all the skins and peels on the vegetables and roughly chop. Add in a large pot and cover with water just to the top of the vegetables. Bring to a boil, reduce to low boil and cook for 90 minutes. Add more water if it gets too low. Strain.
