getting our juice on

as most of you can probably tell, i like food. i like to eat it, make it & enjoy it with friends//family. but should food really be on your mind most of the day??? ehhh probably not. i have decided to get back on track with a healthier lifestyle. i must admit that i gave myself a nice long break from really worrying about my diet & exercise routine, but no more!

i will still be sharing recipes but i will try to make healthier options & give you guys some yummy ideas that won't impact your waste-line quite as much.

so in honor of my new state of mind here is my new {or should i say repurchased} juicer! mark & i bought a juicer when we were first married & loved making fruit//veggie juices. unfortunately i fried the motor by forcing a huge carrot into the poor little guy which it could not handle. opps.

this is honestly such a great way to get some extra fruits & veggies into your bod. i love it & am happy to start up again!

if you guys have any good juice recipes please do share! i have a favorite go-to blend that i love & will share with you now...

jenna's blend >>
yields 2 large glasses

3 carrots
1/2 of a large beet
3 celery sticks
2 apples
6 leaves of kale
2 cups of spinach
1 orange, peeled

i like to wait until my juice is nice & cold so you can either make it ahead of time & let it chill in the fridge or add some ice cubes.

^^^this combo may not come out looking very pretty thanks to mixture of red beet juice & the green of the kale/spinach, but it tastes amazing!^^^


  1. this is great! what kind of juicer do you have? i'm about to purchase my first one.


  2. Sounds yummy. I made a smoothie with 1 celery stalk, 1 apple, 1/2 cup spinach, 1 tablespoon flaxseed, 1 date, 3 frozen strawberries and a cup of water. It was delish post workout this morning.


  3. I've been looking for a few good juicing recipes! Thanks for sharing your favorite!!

  4. this is great

    heres my favorite juice so far:

    2 green apples
    2 kiwi
    1 cucumber
    1 lime
    juice then blend with handful of spinach and handful of kale! sometimes i add chia seeds too!

  6. Dang I need a juicer! This looks amazing!
