It’s a new year! I hope you had the happiest of celebrations. This year is going to be a BIG one for me – most notably because J and I are getting married in August! (Eek!)
I love the idea of a fresh start, of reevaluating where you’re at, and realigning yourself with what’s important. Although it’s cliched, every January I like to try out a few new healthy recipes and I appreciate my workout routine with renewed enthusiasm (although I detest how busy the gym gets!).
Last January I succumbed and finally bought a juicer, after eyeing one for many months. After tons of research, I bought the Breville Juice Fountain Plus, which has 3,400 glowing reviews and is the same one promoted by the Fat Sick and Nearly Dead documentary.
Anyway, yadda yadda I could go on forever about how much I’ve fallen in love with juicing! And how healthy it is! And how it fuels your body with extra nutrients! And how I feel like I don’t need a morning coffee if I have a fresh homemade juice!
I highly recommend that you do your own research – for me, the affordable price point was an easy sell for me to try juicing.
So, most mornings I start my day with a homemade juice. Most often, I make one of two recipes – this Kiwi Green Juice, or a Carrot Ginger Juice (recipe coming soon!) I LOVE the idea of drinking your spinach! And drinking this brilliant green juice just makes me feel instantly healthier 😉
Kiwi Green Juice has a simple recipe – through my juicer I press a large handful of clean spinach leaves, a peeled kiwi, a cored apple, and a whole lime. I love adding lime to my juices – the tang really balances out the sweetness from the apple and gives you an extra morning jolt!
Do you juice?
- 1 large handful washed spinach leaves
- 1 kiwi skin peeled and cut in half
- 1 large apple cored, and cut in quarters
- 1 lime seeds removed, and cut in half
- Press all ingredients through your juicer. Serve over ice.
Recipe yields one glass of juice. Increase quantities to yield more.
