It's a juicy kind of day....

I don't know about you - but all I can say is that I ate way too much yesterday.  Way too much.  This morning, I was trying to figure out approximately how many calories I think I ate and whether or not I gained weight.  Oh well, I have to put that behind me and today...I'm going to drink my meals...and have a juicy day...to balance out what I ate yesterday.

I'm a juicing fanatic...and love to create all kinds of juices by experimenting with different combinations of fruits and vegetables to see how they taste together.  One of my very favorite juices is a combination of romaine lettuce, a cucumber, some celery, beet root, two carrots....all juiced together with a touch of ginger and some lemon.  It's really yummy.  

For those who love juicing or are interested in learning more, here is a great website that I use as a resource called Juicing for Health.  Enjoy!

Sounds like a great juice combination. I love fresh juice too, but don't make it very often these days.

Hey Debbie - thank you so much for the wake-up call. I needed to read this tonight to get myself back on track. Monday I'm restarting my workouts in the morning. I've always wanted to start juicing, so I'm grateful for this link! Do you find yourself missing the act of chewing, though....? :)

Thanks for the recommendation and I know - I'm full too even though my family and I already celebrated Thanksgiving early. Hope you had today to recoup from all of the food, lol!

My favorite juice has always been carrot, celery, & parsley. So many of my friends are going raw. I can't do that but I've always had a juicer since I bought my first Acme at a garage sale for $5.00 25 years ago. Adding the fresh ginger is a nice way to zing it up too. I always juice more in January to detox & start the new year out right.

I never tried juicing but I do make a smoothie every morning for breakfast with any kind of fruit I have laying around, and believe me I have made some real combinations.
