Hey guys!!!! I know that I have been 100% absent from the blog world for about the last month, and I apologize. Coaching cheerleading this year has completely taken over my life (along with teaching middle school full time and teaching a couple fitness classes each week). Whenever I get time at home, I honestly just want to hang out with Daniel. It's also hunting season, so I'm spending a lot of my "free" time in the woods.
I hope that y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family! We spent Thursday with Daniel's family, and Friday night we had Thanksgiving dinner with my family - Italian style! My mom made lasagna and I made manicotti. It was a fun night, and I am still full from all the food the last couple of days!
Since i'm sure we are all in some state of food coma from Thanksgiving, I decided to share a juice detox recipe that I've been enjoying lately. Juicing is a great way to get in a TON of fruits and vegetables. I made this recipe twice over the Thanksgiving break, and I bought more produce yesterday so that I can make it a few more times this week.
Whenever juicing, I try to use the freshest ingredients possible.
I also try to buy organic if I can!
The first time I made this juice, I accidentally threw away my piece of ginger with the ends of the celery stalks I had chopped off. It was still very good without the ginger! The second time, I decided to add some blackberries. Well, guess what the blackberries did? They turned my beautiful green juice completely black. How dare they. I actually preferred the juice without the blackberries, but I think they were tart and that may have been the reason.
I hope that each of you have a marvelous Monday and a fabulous week! I promise (pinky promise!) that my next post will be less than a month away. ;)
so tell me...
do you juice? if so, what is your favorite juice combo?
what was the BEST thing you ate over the Thanksgiving holiday?
