I recently told you that my hubs and I were going to start juicing…veggies and fruits, that is. We have been doing it for almost two weeks and I have to say….I really LOVE it.

We decided….after watching a late night infomercial, to go with the Nutribullet. It is so incredibly easy and versatile. Clean up is a breeze and the choices are limitless.

I even have my kids drinking juices now.

I have had several requests for juice recipes and I will gladly share; however, I usually just make it up on the fly. I do have a couple of standbys so he you go….

Morning Drink:
Handful of kale
4 baby carrots
1 naval orange, peeled
1 tbsp of raw shelled hemp seeds
Water and ice
Blend

Frog juice (my kids’ fave):
Handful of spinach
Cored apple
Peeled orange
Water and ice
Blend

The benefits from juicing are incredible.
-lower cholesterol
-reverse aging process
-healthier hair and skin
-helps digestion process
-increased energy
-weight loss
-and much more

As I am starting my Advocare 24 Day Challenge, I find it very easy to stay full on healthy choices while juicing.

I would LOVE to hear your own favorite concoctions. Please comment and share!!!!

Here’s to a better me….

Those that know me know that I am always looking for the next best thing on nutrition. I was a vegetarian for nearly 2 years and I tried the vegan thing for about 6 months (too damn difficult in our society). I enjoy being healthy and trying my best to choose the healthiest option the majority of the time. I have heard a lot about raw food nutrition and juicing; however, I had never tried it.

Until today…. One of the Yoga instructors at the studio I go to in Granbury, Vitality Yoga, told our class about Barefoot Market, a juice bar and nutrition store. I had some time to kill today so I loaded the kids up and went to check it out. YUMMY!!! I had carrot, spinach, kale, and oranges juiced together. Delicious and it truly was filling. they also have a natural food market that is stocked with awesome goodies.

Thank goodness I liked it because we had already purchased a juicer two days ago….I’m patiently awaiting its arrival.

I also am about to start reading Natalia Rose’s Raw Food Detox Diet. I will keep you all posted and share recipes as I try out different blends. Please share if you have experiences as well!
