eating right or juicing after a vacation

21

I have to admit, although I watched what I ate mostly, sticking to salads and soups everywhere I went on this trip, I did eat desserts and bread every single day, also downing a few cans of soda for energy and wine and mixed drinks while winding down at the end of the day.

So, as you know, like most people returning from a vacation, I plan to watch what I eat and go back to my exercise regiment right away, adding a juicing option not so regimented. Here’s a good recipe to consider:

Kale Juice
Serving: 2 Servings
Ingredients
  • 6 leaves kale (1 bunch)
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 2 green apples
  • 2 pears
  • 1 lime

Instructions

  1. First wash your fruits and veggies.
  2. Leave the kale leaves and celery as is, these can go in your juicer whole.
  3. Chop your green apples and pears in half (leaving the skins on) just making sure to remove the seeds.
  4. Cut the lime in half and feel free to leave the rind on, the juicer will take care of the rest!
  5. Throw everything into your juicer and watch the magic happen! Mix well once you’re done and refrigerate overnight. Enjoy!
