Today is day 1 of a 2 day apple fasting experiment. I will eat only apples and drink only water for these 2 days. I will eat a mix of 8 organic red delicious, gala, and yellow delicious apples, each day. People ask me why go through 2 days of stressing the body of not eating regular balanced meals and eating nothing but apples? I say it is something I have been considering for a few months. And from what I've heard we all can stand to use a little detox/fasting program to cleanse our bodies from accumulated toxins in our plumbing system. An apple fast is considered for people who are new to fasting and do not want to do a more serious fast like water or juice only.
Let's see how I hold up with my apple fast. I'll report Tuesday evening on my experience of missing my usual daily banana, granola cereal, peanut butter & honey sandwiches, and a good mix of fruits and vegetables. I think I miss my daily habit.
