Green Goddess Juice




I recently realized that there is a big part of my diet, my health and my life that I haven't really addressed yet on the blog... juicing! About six months ago, my husband and I watched the documentary Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and a couple days later, we purchased our first juicer, the Breville Ikon Juice Fountain. Since our purchase, we've probably quadrupled our intake of whole fruits and vegetables. I've gone from fighting mini headaches about every other day to having no headaches at all. In short, our bodies are happy and healthy which means we are nicer, more productive, and more helpful people.  

If you're looking to make a change in your diet and searching for a way to get more whole fruits and vegetables in your body, I recommend you watch Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead and start juicing! 

Today, I'd like to share one of my favorite juice recipes. This is chock full of helpful micronutrients that your body craves and has a bright, fresh taste which will make you feel energized and ready to take on life's challenges.

I've been doing green smoothies for the past few months. To be honest, I don't really enjoy them. I need to venture out and try more recipes.

Love your quote below about having nothing to wear.

John and I watched it a couple months ago, too, and were convinced we were going to take on the 60 day challenge. Alas, we didn't ever even take on a one day challenge, but oh well. Still inspiring.
