  • My name is Rebecca Joy. My husband Kyle and I have recently gotten married & relocated to Perth, Western Australia after spending the whole of our lives in Indiana. When I'm not behind my camera or working my day job (I double as an accountant!), you can find me at the beach, trying a new-to-me outdoor activity, snuggling up with the hubs or learning to be a domestic diva. I love being married, photographing you getting married, and being able to tell your story after the vows. Thank you for stopping by & I can't wait to meet you!

Things Happening In My Kitchen| Juicing

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.

Juicing

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 Zucchini

1/2 Honeydew melon

1 Lemon

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!

One of my favorite things about living in Perth is that this can be our view on any given evening…

Look at all of those kitesurfers!

Living in a coastal city has really been an awesome experience– one that I never anticipated having!  Who would have guessed that this Hoosier would end up moving to Oz?!  I hope you’ve enjoyed witnessing our “Adventures in Oz” on the blog.  To see more frequent updates on what we’re doing (because I’m clearly terrible at blogging consistently), find me on Instagram!
