I felt like Juicing

I’m in the middle of a fitness challenge and one of the requirements is to keep a food journal. As it stands, I have love/hate relationship with keeping track of my meals. I suck at it most of the time, mostly because I snack too much and those dried fruits, pretzels and spoons of ice cream add up.  This is the main reason I’ve stop losing pounds and started gaining them. More calories in than out. Well ,to try to remedy the snacking and to get more veggies into my system, I hit the Breville and served up some green goodness.

  • Bag of Spinach
  • 2 large cucumbers
  • 1 bunch of celery
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 3 apples
  • 1 orange

This was enough for 3 pints of juice. I finished one off yesterday with dinner and I have 2 left to enjoy while at work. I wish I made time for more juicing. It really makes me feel so Fresh to death! It’s something about that liquid goodness that gives me just the boost I need. Filled with vitamins & minerals like A, C, E, B6, K, folate, iron, protein, potassium, calcium and manganese, this fruit and veggie combination is a winner.
