Juices and Berries :: Clean Slate 24 Hour Fast #WedWellness

This post was originally on YoliOuiya.com and now it’s here! Enjoy.

Clean Slate Fast

It is a 24 hour fast to kickstart your week, month, year; Whatever the occasion. Sometimes I feel the need to give my body system a hard reboot and this surely can achieve that.
My experience is this is a perfect fast for those who work during the week and want to just incorporate something new. For fast longer than 24 hours, I believe it is best to start on a Friday, as it will allow your body to make adjustments over the weekend before you return to work.

During the clean slate fast, it is essential that you drink lots of clean water. Preferably filtered water, not distilled.

Today, I will have the following juice and smoothie, with a day of water, a local kombucha, and this evening I will have another smoothie and a mild squash broth soup.
