Juicing and natural beauty tips

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.

  1. Cindy! You used to be one of my favourite gossip bloggers way back then, along with Michael K and the early days of Perez!
    I love juices and have been drinking them for years, way before it was in vogue, thanks to my mom. Today I had apple, peach, plum and carrot. As soon as grapes are ready, I’ll add those. Another favourite is orange, apple carrot and strawberries.

  2. Thank you!! Oh yes the days of my gossip writing!! Grapes and peaches are probably delish in a juice.
    I have never juiced strawberries, Im going to try. XO
