Are you juicing yet? I’ve been trying to do a little daily juicing and was feeling pretty pleased with myself for drinking about ten ounces of green juice every afternoon. Then I read the suggested consumption of juice is about 36 ounces. And then I didn’t feel so special!
Here are some of the combos I’ve tried thus far:
*Kale, apple, parsley, cucumber, celery, spinach. The taste of kale is quite bitter, I can pick it out of all of those other veggies.
*Pineapple, ginger, lime. By far my favorite drink! Probably because its all fruit.
*Apple, spinach, celery, lemon, cucumber. Delish and a vibrant green that would make a nice color for a sweater.
*Lemon, parsley, apple, spinach. Granny Smith apples make really good juice.
*Apples, ginger, lemon. My kids might drink this one. Again, no greens so its really delish but not as many nutrients as when I add the greens.
I’ve read a lot about the benefits of juicing beets but since I hate the flavor of beets, I’m not sure I’ll be giving that a whirl! When I get my gelatin, I will be adding that to the juice for a surge of protein. I’d like to try wheatgrass as well but worry it will taste like grass clippings.
If you’ve been juicing, tell me what your favorite combos are?
A few easy, natural beauty tips:
*Try this detox tea: honey, ginger, lemon in a cup of warm water.
*Add a scoop of coconut oil to oatmeal in the mornings.
*For a little treat, try dark chocolate covered almonds. I eat about three or four after lunch for something sweet.
* Use a deep cleansing oil (I like the one by DHC to remove makeup). Try a few drops of lavender oil on a warm, damp microfiber cloth, then wipe away oil.
*Pure argan oil as a moisturizer instead of a cream or lotion.
*Add argan oil to conditioner for a surge of hydration.
