Juice-licious.

How good does this look? I’ve said it before and will say over and over! It’s not a matter of having time for anything – it’s really a matter of making it. Yes, juicing can be messy and take 7 minutes of your time, but really…if you think of the amount of time you spend trolling though facebook, instagram, watching tv. etc everyday I think you can take a few minutes to juice it up! Not to mention, these store bought juices can be a litttttle pricey. Actually, let’s be real here, A LOT of pricey!!! This weekend I made a quick juice for some extra nutrients and energy. I used:

  • raw beets (sliced, not cooked) [pottasium(essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas).]
  • green apple[antioxidants lessen your risk of heart disease, diabetes and stroke]
  • lime [weight loss, skin care, improved digestion, relief from constipation, eye care]
  • kale [great for aiding in digestion and elimination with its great fiber content]
  • ginger [relieving digestive problems such as nausea, loss of appetite, motion sickness and pain]
  • carrots [beta carotene and fiber content. This root vegetable is also a good source of antioxidant agents]
  • cucumber [ decreasing swelling and irritation of the skin and providing vitamin K]
  • grapefruit [vitamin c/maintain healthy heart]

It’s important to remember to have more veggies than fruit but whatever gets you going is better than nothing at all in my eyes. For 2 days worth of juice it was $11. That’s 5.50 a juice. Can we stay steal!?
