I’m finally getting the hang of this juicing thing. The hardest part was incorporating enough time into my schedule. I’ve found it easiest to make my breakfast juice the night before, place it in an airtight container up to the brim to reduce exposure to oxygen and put it in the fridge. My favorite are my breakfast juices because I always make them extra sweet with lots of fruit. You shouldn’t have too many fruits later in the day because the sugar in them will make you crash later.
My typical morning smoothie has consisted of peaches, apples, pears, oranges, strawberries, one carrot, and spinach. I try to get a little veg in by adding the carrot and spinach, but I don’t want to taste them! Adding one carrot and a few handfuls of spinach creates a perfect balance with the other fruit flavors shining through.
Now that I’m not allowing myself to go hungry anymore, this diet could actually be fairly sustainable. Not sure how easy it’d be to keep up with travels but otherwise, it’s perfectly feasible to do! I admit though, I am very excited to be on my last day! I can’t wait for those delicious dinner plans Daniel and I have that I mentioned last time.
Here’s one of the green smoothies I’ve made off the rebootwithjoe.com suggestions. It’s called the Green Lemonade:
- 6-8 kale leaves
- 3 handfuls of spinach
- 1 green apple
- 1 cucumber
- 2 celery stalks
- 1 lemon
It’s actually pretty tasty!
This one was also really good made with 4 carrots, 2 apples, and 1 lemon — also from rebootwithjoe.
I should have stuck with the recipes more because adding too much variety to each juice starts making all the juices taste the same — and that gets old fast. Don’t worry about fitting all of your veggies into your juice every time. Mix it up and have some in one juice and some in another. A suicide of all the flavors is no bueno.
She is down to 210 lbs! That’s about 10 lbs lost since she started her new weight loss regime almost 3 weeks ago. I’m so proud of her! She was busier this last week and only worked out once a day instead of her previous twice a day routine, but it seems to be working for her. She’s also been keeping up with her healthy eating. Way to go, Ashley!
Have a lovely Thursday night!
