Green Detox Juice : Day 1

Green Detox Juice

Howdy! So we are now on our second week of 2016, it’s finally time to get started on all those resolutions and goals we planned at the end of 2015. Have you started?

I meant to have this post up yesterday (Monday), but as it was my first day, first time ever detoxing by body, I really felt terrible. I started off great in the morning as I always do as soon as I wake up is drink some water, about 16oz., then around 7am I sipped on some warm lemon tea. Then I made this Green Juice, which I will be sharing the recipe below. I haven’t had any green juice in a while, and when I had this juice for breakfast and lunch, it really tasted great!

In between each juice I tried to drink some more water, but the juice really filled me up so much I wasn’t even thirsty. By the time Naty came home from school (3pm), I started feeling weak, dizzy, with a slight headache. I had no energy whatsoever. It was pretty hard to even get dinner prepared, good thing I only had my daughter to care for, as my husband is working out of town this week.

By the end of the night I was doubting if I could go on, I still had two more days…good thing I didn’t commit to a week long detox (yikes!). As I was washing the dishes, I noticed my daughter left a bit of chicken soup on her plate… hardest battle ever lol! I thought if I eat now, then all I’ve done all day will go to waste. But I was so hungry I decided a grapefruit would do no harm, worst decision… I was better off just going to bed! The smell of the grapefruit triggered this nauseating feeling, like the urge to vomit. Now I was really re-thinking if this detox was for me…


After a little research, I found these symptoms are normal! My body resetting, and toxins are being released. This morning I woke up not as hungry as last night, I’m feeling good and ready for my juice! I will be sharing today’s (Tuesday) Beet Juice tomorrow. For now, here is my super Green Detox Juice to help start you off this 2016 with a bang.


Half a pineapple (about 2 cups)

2 cucumbers

3 stalks of celery

3 apples

bunch of spinah (2 cups)

1 cactus

2 peeled lemons


First wash all fruits and veggies. Make sure you remove the spines from cactus. Depending on your juicer, cut up all fruits and vegies into chunks.

Add all fruit and veggies into juicer. I like to start off with the bigger pieces first like cucumber, spinach, celery, pineapple, apples and lemons.

Refrigerate and serve. This recipes makes about 4-5 glasses of pure green goodness juice.

If you decide to start a juice detox make sure you drink water in between each juice meal. I like to use my weight, divides by 2, that’s how much water my body needs.

Drink away!

3 Easy Ways to Keep On-the Go Moms Hydrated

I recently gave birth to my son 5 months ago, and still it feels like it was just yesterday. And honestly, since then I’ve been a mess.

I know I sometimes manage to forget or just not have enough time to sit down and eat a proper meal or enjoy a refreshing drink. Hydration is the most important way to keep ...

Cereal con Cariño: Enjoying the Moments that Matter

Now that school has started I have less time to sit and eat with my daughter to talk and enjoy breakfast or lunch together. When she comes home she eats dinner and then starts on her homework, leaving little time to enjoy those moments. Which is why I cherish and look forward to weekends. Growing up my parents worked so much, I can only remember Sunday mornings as the only day where all the famili ...

All the questions and doubts came when I started. I had my son in my arms and I was going to start speaking t ...

My child's first toy-book

My friend Isabel gave my son this book as a new baby gift, when he was just two months old.  He couldnt use it at that moment as he was too little, but soon after, when he was five months, I gave it to him for the first time. He loved it from the very first moment. It is called Pet Tails by Anne Wilkinson and the publisher is Little Jellycat. It is a fabric book but we could consider it as a toy. ...
