Mondays With Michelle: The Power of Juice

Happy Monday, and welcome back to Monday's with Michelle! In case you are wondering what happened with my Half Marathon that I mentioned a while back... I did it! It was last weekend and I finished and I am still alive and kicking. :-)

Today, I want to talk about Juicing. Juicing is basically, taking  whole bunch of fruits, veggies and herbs and running them through a juicing machine to extract all the juice to create a delish concoction chocked full of nutrients in liquid form. Some people do this for the purpose of fasting, to replace meals, and some just to have Clean, Fresh, Yummy juice.

I started juicing a while back after seeing the documentary, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I started having juice in the morning since that was the meal I was missing the most anyways and its  great way to start the day. I have to say I love it! You can mix any combination of fruits and veggies that work for you. Check out my favorite "green" juice..

Kale, orange, apples, grapefruit, carrots, and cucumbers... all ready to juice.

Here's is what we get after juicing all those fruits and veggies... green juice!
I know that green juice doesn't look all that appealing, but it is actually quite yummy. Adding in a superfood like kale really adds to the nutritional content too, so you can feel good about what you are drinking.  There are so many different combinations you could try, the possibilities are endless! This is a great way to get the recommended servings of fruits and vegetables in one shot. This is also a great way to trick your kids and vegetable haters alike into getting their veggies in. Carrots are almost undetectable when you add them in with lots of apples and pears. You should give it a try and see what you think!

Have you juiced before? What are your favorite combinations? I'd love to hear your comments below!
