Juice Recipes

I have a major wardrobe problem in that I only own workout clothes. So even on the weekends when I’m running errands or going out to dinner or the movies I wear workout clothes (yes I know that’s bad). My friend Ari once told me she was going to sign me up to be on the tv show What Not to Wear. To make things worse the only shoes I wear are sneakers, flip flops if it’s warm and winter boots when it’s cold.

Well big news, I got my first pair of skinny jeans a few weeks ago! I know I’m a couple years late to the skinny jean party but I’ve finally arrived. I have tried skinny jeans on many times and each time I’ve been slightly traumatized. But with lots of encouragement I finally found a pair with enough lycra to actually feel comfortable! I got them from Francesca’s and I even got a top and a purse! This is huge for me. I’ll post a picture of this outfit someday when it isn’t snowing in Salt Lake!

But now I’m seeing overalls are back in style? (and very expensive!)

And even worse, wide-leg printed pants?

Is this true? Did I miss the skinny jean party completely? It’s really hard to keep up with fashion. For me anyway.

So let’s talk about juicing instead πŸ™‚

Here are 2 amazing and not scary at all juice recipes! I was absolutely terrified to drink these beet juice concoctions because beet juice doesn’t smell all that great. I was expecting drinking it to be like fear factor but beet juice is surprisingly sweet!

Beet juice is also supposed to be good for the liver, eyes and blood. It is not good for light carpet. Just a warning.

I really like this juice recipe. It isn’t sweet which I like.
Morning Energizer Juice
1 beet
1 chunk of ginger
1 lemon
handful of baby carrots or 1-2 regular carrots

This is a really good one too but too sweet for my liking. This would be a good “starter juice” for someone who is tentative about drinking vegetables. This recipe makes 3-4 servings.
Sweet Beet Juice
1 beet
1 mango
1 green apple
handful of baby carrots or 1-2 regular carrots
handful of spinach

Oh and I started my cleanse on Monday so I’m already on day 5. Yay! Unfortunately I’m not past the point of craving sugar and cinnamon rolls yet so hopefully that passes soon πŸ™‚

Have a great weekend!
