Well, I’m back on the road again! And here’s a quick snapshot of what juice fasting on the go looks like:
Grapefruit/Orange with a few drops of stevia is really satisfying and is a great supplement to my pressed juices.
Pressed Juicery to the rescue! Coming prepared with enough juice is key to staying on track with a fast on the road, away from the comfort of your own juicer. This is only a portion of my packed juices- but you get the idea!
Even if you aren’t on a fasting journey, if you’re traveling (by plane especially) I find it’s best for the digestive system to either juice fast until landing or at least keep your intake light and water rich. For example: plenty of water, green juice, herbal teas, water rich fruits and veggies, avocados, etc. as opposed to dry and hard to digest nuts, crackers, protein bars, miscombined meals, and so on. Since our digestive systems practically stagnate under that amount of pressure and lack of oxygen, it’s best to make things as easy as possible on our poor systems! We aren’t technically meant to be at those altitudes in the first place, but since we all have places to go and people to see, we might as well take care of our bodies as best as possible 😉
After a couple weeks, I decided it was time to wrap up the fast. I’m in a bit of a transition period right now, so I’m listening to my body and working with it. I’m still juice fasting until dinner most days though, but most importantly doing what feels best each day, making sure I have energy to exercise, and getting enough rest to do it again the next day!
