Long time, no blog

Gosh, I can't believe it's been so long since my last post! Very sad, but good things are coming and I just wanted to say hello, I've missed you. We've been busy with family stuff and learning more and more about superfoods—I love it! I've met so many wonderful and inspiring people along my journey so far, so keep checking out the links and blogs to the left as I've added some great sites recently. I also added the guest post I wrote on The Green Smoothie Blog about my adventures with green smoothies and my favorite recipes. Of course things are always evolving and I am committed to keeping readers out there better informed.

But now it's time to get back to work. I have a long list of things to share with you and I'm ecstatic about some opportunities I've discovered and become a part of, so stay tuned. For now here's a new recipe I tried after thinking, "Why haven't I juiced something other than carrots yet?! What am I waiting for?!"

Carrot Juice Blend

Carrot Juice Blend

Juice the following for 1-2 servings:

  • 5 carrots
  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 apple

Blend with:

  • 1/4 butternut squash (previously frozen and thawed to make softer
  • 1/2 avocado
  • 4 brazil nuts
  • 1 T lemon juice
  • 1 T grated ginger

This was so refreshing, energizing, and hydrating! I'm really looking forward to juicing more now. My mom got me my Jack LaLanne's Power Juicer for about $99, and it works great. I made this juice/soup blend another time and added some sprouts as well as cayenne for an extra kick. I can honestly say I feel the surge of energy from all the readily available nutrients quickly absorbed into my body. And it was surprising filling. Hmmm... maybe a juice feast is in my near future... I'm just concerned about the cost. Any tips/suggestions, or is that not an issue for you?

So have you missed me as much as I've missed writing and sharing with you? Next up: continuing the video lecture series filled with great info from Dr. Sommers. Stay tuned as I will be posting regularly from now on.
