We all know that eating more veggies, mostly leafy greens is the key to good health, weight-loss and slowing down aging! But how can we eat enough veggies to make a difference?
I fell in love with my Vitamix a few years ago. I was blending everything I could find.
These smoothies were good and soooo filling. They were the perfect breakfast food in warm weather. I fell off my love affair with smoothies when it got cold. It was too hard to drink that quantity of thick, filling cold liquid on those cold mornings.
Enter, stage left, The Juicer! So a few weeks back, we bought an Omega juicer. We had an old juicer that took hours to clean after each use, produced so much post juicing waste and made the juice warm and very unappealing. The Omega is awesome. It is uber quiet, very efficient and cleanup takes a quick rinse and voila, done. The juice is never hot, which means the nutrients are intact and so efficient that I don’t have those guilt feelings of wasting food that I had before.
Every morning after a tall glass of lemon water, I create the most wonderful glass of fresh juice. My favs are:
1 cucumber, 2 stalks of celery, 1 apple, 1 lemon and ½ head of kale!
½ head of kale, 1 carrot, 1 pear, 1 lemon, a handful of red grapes and a handful of spinach.
I like creating new and different ones each morning – I always start with Kale and lemon and then just go wild from there.
This morning…beets! The juice was gorgeous.
So if your are looking for a way to get more veggies into your diet consider a juicer..
It’s quick and easy.
