Juicy Tuesday-Thanks for Giving Edition

IMG_0700.JPG

Juicy Tuesday! Every Tuesday we conquer the day with a powerful green juice to help supplement our busy lifestyles. The idea behind Juicy Tuesday is about taking the time one day a week to reflect and honor our body as the vehicle that propels us though our days, weeks and years. Just like we may take care of our car, we also need to give attention to our body as well. Providing oneself with good and healthy sustenance is the biggest gift we give ourselves and also for those in our lives. One day a week is a starting place to giving yourself a little head start on getting healthy and feeling good. Go ahead, hug yourself and say “thanks, self.” Cheers, MMM

Juicy Tuesday- Thanksgiving Prep Edition

It it officially Thanksgiving season when the fresh cranberries are available! I was gathering my ingredients for “Juicy Tuesday” tomorrow and realized it looked quite similar to a Thanksgiving meal prep. Perhaps a little juicing of ingredients will keep some room in my belly for the real deal meal on that special Thursday each November here in the US. Fresh pressed green juice is a great addition to a healthy lifestyle to ensure you get those essential nutrients that you may have missed out on because you were busy out there doing LIFE!

In this concoction, we have kale, celery, lemon, apple, pear, fresh cranberries, ginger and turmeric! This is an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory cocktail that has a bit of sweet from the ripe pear to really help with a gorgeous taste to complement your green juice! Drink up a glass of nutrition and get ready for your fabulous self to celebrate!

Juicy Tuesday Green Prep Plus

As we finish rounding out Meatless Monday today, I have begun to forage for my green juice ingredients gearing up for my weekly cleanse day each Tuesday. Juicy Tuesdays seem to come pretty quickly after a busy weekend and getting life back to whatever happens on Mondays. It’s best to start your Juicy Tuesday with the mindset of clearing energy and as well as your body and start with a mindful meditation when you wake to the world. Gratitude and graciousness sometimes take practice and this is a good time to start, especially with the winter season and the holidays right around the corner. Simple guided meditations are easily found for free online or in an app so put on that headset for 10-15 minutes and let “Calgon take you away” and recalibrate your mindset and enjoy your Juicy Tuesday, green juice and all! Cheers, MMM

Juicy Tuesday “Secret Ingredient”

 

IMG_0618.JPG

“Juicy Tuesday” is all about juicing one day a week to enhance the health and vitality of your personal operating machine called your body. Add those days up over the year and you can really feel the difference in your everyday living and experience how to stay young and be fabulous. The secret ingredient in today’s juice is a fresh seasonal item that is quite overlooked in its fresh state and usually served with a load of sugar. This glorious little fruit is fresh cranberry and cousin to the ever popular Superfood, blueberry. The cranberry is also loaded with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that can be beneficial from head to toe and everything in between, if you know what I mean.  You can use just a half a cup of fresh cranberries into your green juice to really ramp up the power boosting properties of fresh pressed juice and enjoy this new drink we call “Rocket Fuel.”  Juice is the new whiskey! Drink up! Cheers, MMM
