Jazzed about Juicing!

January 23, 2017

I have been looking for my juicer ever since we moved last Summer! Well, I finally found it and I’m so excited to juice again!  I am committed to juicing every day this week to see how it makes me feel. My energy has been crappy from being stuck at home in the snow and not moving my body as much as it likes. I want to clear my head, have more sustained energy, balance my hormones and just feel cleaner. Plus, I know when I add fresh juice to my body, with the intent to hydrate and nourish all my cells, I feel better, look better and am way more motivated!

What I know about Juicing is that it takes TIME! From purchasing organic, fresh fruits and veggies to cleaning and chopping; it makes me purposely choose what I want to put in my body. It is also an incredible mindfulness practice. 

My concoction tasted SO good this morning!! I juiced 4 carrots, 10 celery stalks, 1 small lemon, ½ cucumber, small chunk of ginger and a handful of spinach. Wow! This combination was not at all sweet, very alkaline, and yet had a small kick to it from the ginger. Normally I choose sweet things, so whenever I come back to juicing after not juicing for awhile, it takes a few days to let go of the need for sweet. However, if I really want sweet I just add an apple :) The vitality in fresh juice is always such a reminder of how I want to eat all the time.

With nutrition, my belief has always been to BRING IN more nutritional foods and be curious about which foods (and activities and people) tend to effortlessly fall away. 

Wanna clean house with me?
