3-Day Fruit Fast & Cleanse

I’m participating in 40 Days to Personal Revolution at my yoga school. This program, developed by Baron Baptiste, incorporates regular asana practice (6 days a week) with regular readings from the book, journaling/writing/reflecting, weekly group meetings with other participants, twice daily meditation and observation of certain dietary restrictions (for the sake of cleansing). For me, I have eliminated all caffeine and processed sugar from my diet for the entire 40 days.

As part of the program, we embark on the fourth week (we just finished week 3) with a 3-day fruit fast. I might as well call this a fruit “feast” since I truly enjoy eating tons of fresh, ripe, juicy fruits! During these 3 days we eat nothing but fruit. This begins tomorrow (Monday) morning and ends on Thursday morning.

I just re-stocked my fruit supply. Here is what my kitchen counter looks like right now. I don’t know if I will finish all of this in 3 days, but it will be fun trying! Most of fruit is organic (except for the berries, papaya, avocado and mangoes).

  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 4 avocados
  • 2 x 2lbs strawberries
  • 4 x 5oz blackberries
  • 7 kiwis
  • 4 large mangoes
  • 4 apples
  • 2 pears
  • 25 clementine oranges (small ones, about 5 pounds)
  • 1 navel orange
  • 1 huge pommelo
  • 3 medium papaya
  • 22 mini-banana
  • 22 regular bananas
  • 1 large pineapple
  • 25 kumquats (8oz)
