Nay Goes Green!

 See, this happy face?
This is the face of girl who has gone green.
: )
By green, I mean I've joined the health bandwagon and have started...
{drumroll}

Juicing!

I have been drinking a Mean Green Juice for the last two weeks.
See:
It's green and I've been drinking it
Me
Your Nay
I am absolutely amazed, to tell you the truth
Morning and Night
Me and the hubby
Drinking our Juice
 
It took just a day to get used to, but the hubby and I have gotten it down to a science.
Our friends shared their recipe with us, so I thought I could share it with all of you!
Excited?
Oh, come on!
Live a little!

Mean Green Juice
(makes 4 servings)

one handful/bunch of spinach
2-3 stems/leaves of kale
1 cucumber (peeled)
1 green apple (cored)
1 pear (cored)
1/2 tsp of ginger
3 tbsp of agave
4 cups of water
1 cup of frozen blueberries
1 tsp of lemon juice

Blend kale and spinach with two cups of water first
add everything else with the last two cups of water
Chill in the fridge
Serve cold
I usually blend my serving again with some ice before drinking it 

What we've learned:
 * I've noticed it taste better with a little more ginger 
* The apple and pear give it sweetness
* This week we substituted one cup of water 
for a cup of carrot juice (homemade) just to spice things up

Also, I've almost ten pounds since juicing.
I juice for breakfast and dinner, have a normal-healthy-portioned lunch, and two snacks (usually fruit and some nuts or a yogurt with crunchy granola) and I've minimized my coffee intake.

I'm feeling happy and glorious.

Will you try it?
Let me know if you do!

Happy Friday Loveys!
I'm happy I got to spend another week with you.
Have a great weekend.
