Juice Detox Day 5 of 7

Day 5! I've been able to keep with my workout routine while on this fast so that should tell you how much energy I have. I feel great and I've been sleeping like a rock. I still crave solid foods, but it doesn't help that I work in a kitchen. I imagine if I had a desk job and didn't want so much Food Network, I probably wouldn't crave it so bad. Oh well, discipline makes you stronger. The end is near and I am already planning delicious, light meals to eat once it comes.

Citrus Zinger
2 grapefruits
1 lemon
1 lime
2 tangelos

Tomato Broth
3 hot house tomatoes
1 cucumber
2 carrots
2 celery
2 onions
4 garlic clove
1 sprig parsley
1/4" ginger

Coarsely chop, add in a large pot, fill with water just to cover. Boil for 90 minutes, puree and strain.

Mixed Vegetable Stock
1 head purple kale
1 sweet potato
1 sweet onion
2 garlic cloves
10 brussel sprouts
2 carrots
2 celery stalks
parsley stems

Easy Cherry Sorbet
8 oz dark pitted sweet cherries, frozen
juice from one lime

Blend the frozen cherries up in a food processor with the lime juice. Add a little water if needed to get the blade going. Blend until completely smooth like sorbet.

  1. Is the Tomato Broth recipe raw? Seems like a lot of onions for my taste ;) But I do like to balance out my fruit juices with a nice tomato juice when I'm detoxing. Thanks for the recipes.
