Juicing is fun

I've been having some juice every day to help aide my weight loss efforts.  The juice has a low glycemic load because it's mostly vegetable juice.  I use just enough apple juice to cut the bitterness of the veggies.  I juiced some kale the day I bought it and froze it in ice cube trays so I can add it to other blends.  Today I made a tomato-apple-lime combo that was awesome!  The lime makes it really zippy.  My 2-year-old loves it too.  We've had her on plain milk and water so her taste in juice is unformed.

I came across this Ted Talk and I thought I'd share it with you.


  1. Do you own a juicer or just a food processor?

  2. I'm so blessed with you as a friend. Here are some answers to your questions.

    Yes, I own a juicer. It's a Champion masticating juicer and it's bad-ass! I love it.

    Yes, we are trying to eat whole foods and foods with ingredient lists we can read easily.

    I have been a bit lax about exercise in the past week, but I'm getting back on the wagon! Ty and I went away for the weekend and I didn't turn my ankle at all. I'm much stronger and feel way better. Gotta keep it up.
