On the second day of a three-day juice fast, my kitchen looked like it had been attacked by an angry squirrel.The cleanse is a juice-only fast that consists of six beverages made from locally grown, organic produce delivered each day.Cut, a year later, to my almond-strewn kitchen.At 2 a.m., starving, sleep-deprived and dreading the next day at work, I sat on my bedroom floor with an Arabic coffee cup and a wooden garlic masher pulverizing 20 almonds.Nashabe later explained that feeling rested is a common benefit of juicing. She said the body's digestive tract and liver get a break from processing food, and therefore, the body as a whole has more restful sleep.The juices contain less than 5 grams of protein a day, 10 percent of the recommended intake for an adult woman.The carrot-based juice in the evening tasted richer than it did the first day, the green lemonade sweeter and more refreshing.If those were the expected outcomes – and despite all the discomforts – then my juice cleanse was really successful.
