Simplicity

I must say, that despite my last post, I haven't been taking care of myself as well as I know I should have been lately. I've let a few things "go" and haven't been eating as much raw as I like to. Naughty me! Well, I've repented and am excited to be doing ALL raw again (I'm more of a high-raw girl).

This morning I had my first ever Green Juice! I learned from one of Kevin Gianni's recent videos how to juice with the Vita-Mix (since our juicer is pretty pathetic) and so I had fun doing that. But next time I make a green juice I'm going to put some fruit in it, for a first time, all greens (kale, spinach, romaine, alfalfa sprouts, 1 garlic clove, and some lemon) was a bit too much. I'm familiar with fruit and veggie juices so I think I'll mix some of that in my next batch. If any of you have some scrumptious Green Juice ideas, comment below and let me know.

Today I've been eating super simple, breakfast was, of course, the Green Juice and 1 orange. Lunch was a Strawberry Milkshake (my Mom makes an incredible raw version) and pineapple slices (hence the picture).

Sometimes simple is the nicest.

I've been juicing a little more lately too with greens. Sometimes juice is all I need for dinner.

Ami~ Sounds lovely. I'll have to try it sometime. Thanks for commenting.

Heidi~ Mmmm, sounds divine! Sometime you'll have to post one of your Green Juice recipes on your blog.

Kristen~ You're like that Green Juice Guru! lol I second what I said to Heidi, you should post a super tasty green recipe on your blog.

Penni~ You're a dear. It does feel good to feel good, doesn't it? :)

After new year and Christmas, I've eaten too much that I weighed like this and so I have to go on a diet with taking juices, specifically mango and pineapple juice. I'm not the raw girl thing but want to try one time if it would make me better.
