As the title implies… the morning started off a little rainy. I did wake up early, but Mike had to leave for business early so I wasn’t able to get to Pilates Class this morning. Hopefully this afternoon I can squeeze it in.:)

But, I did get up and made this mornings Juice Drink of Carrot, Beet and Cucumber. I also took my spoonful of Barley Max with water and took at look at the menu for today. 

HINT: Cucumber juice is a natural diuretic, is beneficial for those with rheumatic ailments, is high in potassium, promotes hair and fingernail growth and helps to eliminate skin eruptions.

Barley Max 30 minutes before lunch 

Lunch:  Bananas until I’m satisfied

Mid Afternoon: 8oz Carrot Juice

HINT: Carrot Juice is the #1 Juice in the diet. Contains natural vitamins, B,C,D,E,K and beta carotene, a precursor of vitamin A, as well as calcium, phosphorous, potassium, sodium, and many other minerals a trace minerals.

Barley Max 30 minutes before dinner

Dinner: Hallelujah Acres Cabbage Salad &   Carrot Soup

My old juicer had a bit of problem Wednesday night as I was using it to juice some carrots for the Carrot Soup…. so the Soup looked nothing like a soup.

It was a great start to the day… I got up for an early morning Pilates Class here in Potomac, MD. I love the reformer Pilates Classes here!!!! It makes me feel good!!

Breakfast: 1Tsp  Barley Max Powder mixed with 4-8oz of Distilled Water

Then I came home and made my Mid Morning  8oz Juice of Carrot, Cucumber, Celery Juice.

HINT: Celery juice contains organic sodium combined with many minerals the body requires.  

For lunch, I mixed the Barley Max with water and had that 30 minutes before I splurged on 2 pears… that’s what the 14 day eating plan called for on Day 2.

Tuesday Lunch Pears As the day progressed, Mike and I went out and did some errands. Before we left though, I made Mid Afternoon 8oz Juice of  Carrot, Cucumber, Celery Juice for the road… While we were out and about, we realized it was 4pm in the afternoon already. I was starting the get a little hungry and Mike wanted to stop and have a cocktail somewhere local and low key.  

So we stopped off at Wildfire Restaurant in Tysons Corner Mall… where I had a glass of Pinot Grigio and we ordered a Greek Salad with no Cheese. We ended up having a couple of spoonfuls of the salad and then left for home.

For Dinner: I was still a little hungry and wanted to get back on track with the eating, so I mixed my Barley Max and had my drink and proceeded to make Zucchini Salad and Bake a Sweet Potato.

I preheated the oven to 40 degrees and put the Sweet Potatoes in for 4 minutes. And I ate it with some seasonings, or a sweet potato is also great plain!.
