For the past month or so, I’ve been on a real health kick– cooking healthier recipes, preparing smaller portions, not having late dinners, etc. Last weekend, after watching a couple eye-opening documentaries (“Hungry for Change” and “Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead” -both available on Netflix) I realised that Kyle and I aren’t consuming nearly enough of our daily nutrients– so, I bought a juicer! There’s absolutely no way I would eat all of the fruits & veggies in a day that I should– so multiply that by 10 and that’s how difficult it would be to get Kyle to eat 1 carrot in a day, let alone 6! :)
Every day this week, I have been preparing fresh juice for breakfast and a snack juice to take to work. After one failed recipe attempt, I’ve actually managed to find juices that Kyle & I both really enjoy.
Pictured above is what went into this morning’s shot of green goodness (basically all of the leftovers from this week!):
3 Green Apples
1/2 Honeydew melon
1/2″ piece of Ginger Root
2 handfuls Spinach
1 handful Parsley
If juicing is something you’re interested in, I would highly recommend checking out the documentaries listed above as well as the Reboot with Joe website. Most of the recipes I’ve tried so far are from Joe’s website.
I have also created a Pinterest board with all the tasty recipes we’ve tried (or plan to!).
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!
