I know my past food-related posts haven’t portrayed me in the healthiest light. Yes, I’m a sucker for mac n’ cheese, sweet treats, and desserts, but I also have another obsession: juicing. As soon as my friend Sarah turned me on to juicing, I immediately ordered my juicer and a recipe book and have been in love with ever since.
Raw, fresh juice is wonderfully rejuvenating and great for your energy, skin, digestion, and immune system. It’s a quick and delicious way to take in vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other phytonutrients. And the pleasure of making it yourself is definitely an added satisfaction.
My favorite juice is currently the Cucumber Refresher. The combination of pears and cucumber creates a subtle, yet refreshing flavor, while the ginger root (just an inch or less) provides an energy and immune boosting zing.
Cheers and happy weekend!
