The holiday season always gets me!
Whatever “diet” or “clean eating” habit my husband & I developed during the year goes out the window come Thanksgiving & beyond. To put it in simple terms, we LOVE food (a little too much) lol.
Well, we are back on it lol. Better late than never. We started off the week in the gym and also did a serious juice cleanse and I must say, im glad we did it.
Gosh, i feel so much better and a lot less sluggish…
I definitely want to do better with my eating habits for more reasons than one.
Below is a Green Juice recipe that I made the other day. Its very simple & yummers:
Ingredients (for 24oz):
-Kale (4 sticks)
-Cucumber (1 whole)
-Green Apple (1 whole)
-Pear (1 whole)
I like juicing with Cucumbers not only because they are infused with tons of liquid…but because they are very hydrating. I’m the type that is always thirsty….I soak up fluids like a sponge. I’m always drinking something (water, juice..etc)..and nowadays, my thirst level is through the roof! After juicing with cucumbers, its hydrating effects leave me feeling not so thirsty anymore, in return curbing my craving for sweet, calorie filled juices.
More reasons I drink Cucumber Juice:
-It decreases puffiness & dark circles under & around your eyes
-It aids in skin repair inside & out
-It has antioxidants great for your blood
-It aids in digestion
…look, as long as there are beauty benefits, I’m all in! 😉
Happy Thursday loves.
