Do you find it challenging to pull yourself out of bed in the morning? Are you living on that triple shot Caramel Macchiato? Are you tempted to nap every afternoon? Does your body protest when your brain feels like exercising? Do you feel like fatigue is all that separates you from your mojo?
If you suffer from low energy and fatigue, you’re not alone. It sounds like this is revving up for a commercial, and in a way, it is.
Truth is, more than half the population reports feeling tired often, and as many as 80% of women around the age of menopause say they are tired most of the time.
You may be saying, “I understand. Been there. Felt that!”
There is a solution. There is a way to get started that’s easy, delicious, and will help to get your mojo back!
It’s great to start the day off with a green drink because it’s a great way to get lots of pure veggie vitamins and nutrients. What do all the veggie vitamins and nutrients give you?
For some reason, the idea of green drinks scares some people. Maybe it’s because they think they don’t like veggies. It could also be that they think they need some kind of perfect recipe like Dr. Oz’s Green Drink Recipe. It could be something entirely different. It’s a fact that green drinks scare people and they shouldn’t.
First, they’re delicious! Seriously TASTY! Secondly, you can make them with any combination of veggies (and a bit of fruit for sweetness) that you like.
Because so many people are scared to get creative with their green drink, here’s an example recipe to help you know what to add.
Today’s Green Drink Juice Recipe
- 1 head celery (that means the whole darn thing, all the stalks, and greens)
- 1/2 bunch kale
- 3 yellow crookneck squash
- 2 paddy pan squash
- 1 handful of fresh green beans
- 2 apples
- 1 grapefruit (peeled, but if its organic, you can put the peel in the juicer too!)
Throw it all in your favorite juicer (for this recipe the Breville Elite Juice Fountain was used. It is amazingly fast, produces lots of juice, and is easy to clean.)
Using the above recipe will make about four large glasses of vitamin and nutrient-packed juice. Plenty to share 🙂
Bottoms up! Healthier, shapelier, bottoms 😉
