So I've been trying to lose weight. My fitness pal has been the app I've been using on my phone to help me along. The first 5 pounds just came off no problem. Then for almost three weeks I just stayed at the same weight. Boo. So I decided to join the juicing craze to jump start some more weight loss.
I've been using a Breville juicer. Borrowed it from my amazing mother in law.
My plan was to drink juice for every meal and two juice snacks a day. I did pretty good, with occasional snitches of food off my 3 year olds plate at dinner. It's only fair. He drank some of every juice batch I made!
I found that for breakfast and snacks that I loved making straight-up fruit juice, delicious!! And it kept me on track to enjoy the juice so much. But for lunch and dinner, I always added veggies and herbs.
My list of must haves: oranges, limes, lemons, golden delicious apples, pears, strawberries, kale, cucumber, romaine, spinach, carrots, ginger, and mint.
This is my recipe for the green juice I liked the most:
Kendra's Green Juice
Golden delicious apple
Half a cucumber
A stalk of kale
Handful of spinach
Two sprigs of sweet mint
One inch of fresh ginger
Wash, cut off stems and ends, juice!
I love all my juice with lots of ice.Today is my last day and I've been able to shed 6 pounds. :-)
