Minty SunshineDay 4 of my Big Juice Spring Clean, based on Jason Vale’s brand new 5lbs in 5 days Juice Master Detox and guess what? GINGER SHOT! I love the fact that this liquid miracle starts each day on this detox. Like I said yesterday, I drink one of these bad boys everyday when I’m home and since I started drinking them I no longer suffer from hay fever!

Today’s Ginger Shot is followed by 2 portions of the Nature’s Super Blend (a very green smoothie) and 2 of Minty Sunshine.

Minty Sunshine

The sun was shining bright today (even if there was also a couple of showers) so what better to drink that the taste of sunshine in a glass. When most people hear the word juice they instantly think of oranges, yet this is the first time during a juice detox that I have ever had a juice with oranges in it.

Juicy Ingredients:

2 x oranges (peeled but with the white pith on)
3 x medium carrots
1/2 cm chunk fresh ginger root (I like to add a bigger chunk, but I LOVE ginger)
4 sprigs of fresh mint


Simply juice all the ingredients and pour over ice.

Cystic Fibrosis A Race We Must Win2013 Miles in 2013

I am doing my 2013 miles in 2013 challenge in aid of the Cystic Fibrosis Trust as I have been surprised since I started fundraising for the CF Trust just how many people are unaware of this disease and so I hope my efforts will not just raise money, but also awareness of the UK’s most most common life-threatening inherited disease.

The first person to commit to sponsoring my 2013 mile challenge has committed to 1p per mile (£20.13 in total) and this got me thinking. I am hoping that as many as possible of those reading this will commit to do the same and the best thing is, if each person does this on a “pay as you go” type approach all you will need to part with is approx £2 just after each pay day. In January I completed 205.9 miles, in February I completed a further 200.9 miles and in March I completed 185.7 miles. If you can please spare £5.93 to help the Cystic Fibrosis Trust it will be greatly appreciated.

2013 Miles in 2013 – The rules

The rules for my 2013 miles in 2013 challenge are quite simple:

  1. All miles must be completely self powered (no motors, sails, etc)
  2. I must be able to evidence all miles, either via GPS or with a picture of any static gym equipment

To complete my 2013 miles I will be running, cycling, rowing and who knows, I might even try a few other self powered methods along the way.
