Juicy Tuesday-After Thanksgiving Reset

IMG_0827.JPG

A “Juicy Tuesday” after a big food holiday is probably the most important one to stick to just to get your body back into balance with a a little juice day to reset all systems. This green juice is quite good and actually a double sized batch so I could take it with me for the day. Kale, celery, cucumber, apple, lemon, ginger and leftover fresh cranberries makes for a juice that is as good and tasty as leftover turkey. Ok, maybe not so much but juice away while the fresh cranberry is in season! Cheers, MMM

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

Kale, celery, lemon, apple, pear, fresh cranberries, ginger and turmeric
