Finally breathing a sigh of relief now that the holidays are over. There's so much to love about that time of year - but there's also so much going on between shopping for gifts, traveling, holiday parties, family time and all that merriment that just takes a toll on you. And let's not forget the damage that inevitably happens to your waistline. This year (like most), I ate incredibly well - and the proof is in the pudding (literally?) when I'm trying to squeeze into what I normally deem my fat jeans. Sad…oh so sad.
My favorite way to get back into "healthy" mode is by replacing a meal (usually lunch) with a fresh fruit and veggie juice. It doesn't have to replace the entire meal - sometimes I'll have a light lunch along with this green juice. All the ingredients that go into it packs a mean green nutritious punch, so even if you're not focused on losing weight it's a great way to get a ton of vitamins and minerals for the day.
I've had my juicer for about 3 years now and it's been a great investment. The model I have was an entry level one and fairly priced. You can also play around with the ingredients - add more or use less based off of your favorites. The apple and carrots add sweetness to it so it actually tastes good (contrary to how it looks)!
