We recently shared Tia's green drink and loved it! Check out what her twin Tamera juices for energy.
1 large cucumber
8 stalks of celery
1 handful of kale
1 handful of spinach
pinch of parsley
ginger (to taste)
Blend all ingredients in juicer or Vitamix for 30 seconds or until desired consistency. Voila!
*Note: If using a Vitamix, you will get all the fiber that you need, though the final result may be more pulpy than using a juicer. Simply add water to thin out if desired.
You might have noticed that the ingredients in my energy juice are really similar to Tia's healthy green juice - but I've got one key ingredient that gives me that extra energy push: an apple! You might know this, but your body is able to turn the natural sugars in apples into energy, which can be equivalent to the energy felt from caffeine in a cup of coffee. Amazing! Also, the carbs in apples fuel your body and the high level of fiber is absorbed more slowly by your body. The result is a steady source of energy, instead of the sudden surge and crash from coffee.
That's right....people who make New Year's Resolutions are losers. I for one am a loser. I know that in order to GAIN insight and direction into my purpose in this life and to live a WHOLE life and not just exist I must be willing to lose a few things. New Year Resolvers know that life can be unpredictable and inconsistent and we have to become adaptable beings if we want to not only survive but thrive. We must be willing to lose old ideas and routines that did not serve us well in 2012.
In 2013 let's resolve to:
LOSE unwanted weight....GAIN health for our heart and joints
LOSE negative talk...GAIN fresh outlooks, new ideas and build positive karma
LOSE negative friends...GAIN laser focus on positive friends that push you forward and not drag you down
I for one am making 2013 the year of making juice cleansing for health a habit. After all, healthy is the new sexy!
Recognize that the real losers in this life are those of us unwilling to change.
A life lived without excuses is a life lived RAW! This is day 14 of your 365...make the most of it.
