21-Day Juicing Challenge: First Week Done & So Much Fun!

Day 2

I wanted to do something to bring people together. Something that not only promoted health and vitality but also promoted community, support and fun…we all need more fun in our lives, right? Yes, absolutely!

So, I decided to host a 21-Day Juicing Challenge, and ask participants to post pictures of their daily juices and juice recipes in a private Facebook group. I had no idea if I would be able to get people to join.

At first, I thought it would be absolutely amazing if 50 people joined me. But something surprising happened; 50 people signed-up within the first 48 hours. And, by the time the first day of the challenge rolled around, we had 180 challengers! I’m still so excited with the turn out. And, it also means that I will definitely host a 21-Day Juicing Challenge every year from now on!

I think the best part of this challenge was the opportunity to meet such wonderful people. I always love to meet new people, and I’m so grateful for the internet and how it’s made this world seem so much smaller.

We have participants from 19 different countries! I have no idea how everyone heard about this challenge but I’m so glad that they did.

We have now wrapped up the first week of the challenge — the first 7 days are now under our belts. Pictures galore have been shared on the Facebook group, and we are collecting hundreds of new recipes: all of which will be compiled into a new FREE juice recipe e-book that will be available for download from this blog.

I thought I would share my juice pictures with you from the first 7 days.

I have also had the fabulous opportunity to meet some fellow bloggers that are also participating the in the 21-Day Juicing Challenge. I’m so grateful to have met Katrin & Julie, better known as The Raw Food Sisters, Koko B of Koko’s Kitchen, Sue of SusanGrahamGuddat.com, Jessica Nazarali of Live Healthy Simply, Melissa Horne of Soul Wellness Kinesiology, Natalia Chouklina of Achieve the Impossible, and Amanda Moore of The Savoury Soul.

Juicing is a powerful tool that can be used to restore and reclaim health. Throughout my healing journey, I have explored and tried an incredible amount of different wellness practices to support my medical treatment and recovery. Juicing by far has been one of the most transformative practices, and I’m so happy that I at least tried it.

Trying new ways to support your health and vitality is an empowering act. Experimenting and exploring ways to boost your energy and to support recovery from chronic illness is only something that you as an individual can do. No one else but you can take the steps needed to more forward into a life where you feel vibrant, happy, strong and alive.

You are the catalyst of your health. And, you deserve to feel amazing. If you are feeling like your health is rather lack luster, or you are battling a chronic illness, I encourage you to try juicing for yourself. Don’t take my word for it, do the experiment yourself, and see first hand how it makes you feel.

      Congratulations on ordering your first juicer! How exciting : ) I have never experienced migraines or nausea from juicing. The 21-Day Juicing Challenge, that I host every year, is not a juicing fast. The participants eat regular, clean, healthy meals, right along side their daily juice. I would recommend that you start drinking one juice per day — along side regular, small, healthy meals. Juicing will give you more energy, and it will help you heal from surgery. (It will also help your immune system.) Get you juice on!
