15 Day Juice Fast: Day 10 & 11

Day 10 & 11 were more like the peaceful first week of this fast. I am continuing to drink a lot of filtered water, several fresh juices a day, a couple cups of detox or herbal tea, and sometimes a little broth, for the salt content. My sleep is great. My skin is clear and … Continue reading
