There’s nothing I love more than the weekend…it’s my time to catch up on all the sleep and tv I missed throughout the week, and I find the weekends to be my little getaway from the hectic and stress of the work week. Since Cleveland is only about 4 degrees outside, and we currently have around 3 inches of snow, I figured y’all would not be very interested in my style today. Especially considering keeping warm when it’s this cold outside is frankly not that pretty or stylish.
So today I wanted to take a moment away from relaxing to some football and a good book to share this awesome juice I made for my mid afternoon snack. I bought a juicer about a year ago after watching a documentary about processed foods, sugar and eating better. If you haven’t watched such a documentary, I recommend watching “Fed Up”, but only if you are serious about changing your lifestyle and how you eat. After buying the juicer, I started juicing a lot of different fruits and vegetables and since my juicer also doubles as a blender, it can make smoothies too.
Today I used kale (Hello superfood!), 4 strawberries, 1 apple, 1 orange, 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks, 1 banana and a spoonful of greek yogurt. Since fruits are naturally high in sugar, this will satisfy my “sweet” cravings for the rest of the day. To start, I juiced the kale, strawberries, apple, orange, carrots and celery. Once this was all in liquid form, I put it in the blender with the banana and the greek yogurt and viola – 2 servings of a super delicious, healthy and very filling treat for your mind, body and soul.
What fruits and vegetables do you think you would like to juice?
