Green Juice

Good morning!

dino kale, lemon, and celery juice

I just LOVE using the juicer. It’s so fun. It’s like an experiment, I never know what it’s going to look like. Check this out–

I had to use up two bunches of dino kale because they were on the verge of going bad. Some of the leaves had to be thrown away.

I started by putting in the kale, then the lemon, and then the celery.

It was a little too green for me, and the lemon didn’t really cut the green-ness of the dino kale. When I was putting the dino kale in the juicer, it smelled like I was cutting the grass. Seriously. It made my whole apartment smell like freshly-cut grass. But I drank it and it didn’t make me gag, and it was surprisingly filling. I could feel that I was getting real nourishment. According to Dr. Furhman, kale has the highest nutrient density of any other vegetable. According to Natalia Rose, it’s green currency that will provide you with “life force energy” straight from the sun. It really did make me feel more energized. If only I could do a green lemonade every morning instead of coffee, I’d be good to go. I’ll have to look into that…

Just a little update…

I did Pilates two days in a row (The Hundred) but didn’t do it yesterday. I was a little sore and figured it would be good to take some time to recover. I’ve heard that taking time to recover is just as important as working out.

The cleanse is going well. I feel better, I can feel the difference.

Still drinking coffee.
