Tasty-juiced concoction of apples, spinach, kale, celery, ginger and cilantro. It’s real refreshing ‘n stuff.
The day that I drank my first juiced veggies (about two weeks ago), I swear I felt like I was in my 20’s again. I had this surge of energy — unlike the surge of caffeine — that lasted all day long. I was energized and on the go without feeling tired at all. I cleaned the ENTIRE basement by myself. I did 7 loads of laundry. I made lasagna from scratch. I scrubbed the collars on 18 businessman-shirts (because I’m my husband’s slave?).
I didn’t sit down all day. And still, there was energy to spare. Wanna borrow some of my energies? I am suddenly super-mutant. You might wanna get in on this.
There’s something to this juicing thing. And this is only the beginning of the journey. I can see this as a way of life for me. I’m so excited, you guys!!
I still have my Shakeology, but that serves a different purpose. Shakeology is a meal that refuels me post-workout and keeps my stomachs full (read the nutrition label). But this juicing thing… this is different and wonderful and I wish I had a juiced drink in my thirsty jaws right this very second.
My mother-in-law let me borrow her Jack Lalanne juicer. Before this awesomeness occurred I was shopping around online to purchase a juicer. I dissected a ton of reviews. Omega, Breville and Jack Lalanne brands came up as top recommendations. Each has its pros and cons. Each has a ton (most) of people singing their praises, yet each also had some disgruntled people as well. So if you’re in the market for a juicer, I encourage you to read the reviews carefully before you decide which juicer is right for you.
You can expect to hear lots more from me about my juicing escapes. I’ll be sharing with you as I learn more about the process of juicing and as I discover the tastiest concoctions. If you have advice to give, please share! So far I’ve also tried concoctions of carrots and apples, as well as beets, carrots and celery. Beets taste like purified dirt, so I’m totally over that already. The juiced concoction in the above pic is my favorite so far.
Sidenote: I haven’t experienced any bad, bathroom-ish side effects from juicing. Only vibrance, and energy and joy. ((insert angelic music here))
Do you juice now or will you ever consider juicing?
The husband says the Jack Lalanne takes up too much space. He demands that if I wanna juice, I have to do it in the garage.
