Juicy Juicy

Good morning everyone! I hope you are having a good week thus far, and perhaps would have read my post last Wednesday about doing a juice detox. As I was ill last weekend, it is nice to now start getting my appetite back to normal and to have things that don’t fill you up too much; having a juice or smoothie for breakfast or lunch is certainly helping.


I just thought I would mention that I have done the craziest thing I could think of and signed up for a 100km (62 mile) non-stop walk. Last year, we took part in a 10km run, which was challenging but we raised £700 for Macmillan; however, I think it is fair to say that even though I tried my hand at running, I’m not totally convinced it’s for me. The Grand Union Challenge sets off from Paddington and finishes in Bletchley…no stopping overnight, no sleeping, just constant walking. Our target is to raise £1000 for Macmillan this time, so if there is anyone reading this, why not have a look at our Just Giving page… -bats eyelashes-


Or, why not take part yourself! You don’t have to do the whole 100km, there are also 25, 50 and 75km options. Have a look here!


So as promised, here are 5 more recipes for some healthy and satisfying juices/smoothies. Enjoy!
