So this year I decided to add a health section to the blog mainly because I believe physical health is just as important as spiritual health. I myself am not the most healthy person in the world so I tried to search for some shortcuts or some easier ways of getting my vegetable intake so we got a Vitamix. The Vitamix is cool but as I was searching for recipes I came across a lot of people who were juicing as opposed to Vitamixing. A lot of the responses to juicing I came across were way over the top as if people had really tapped into to some sort of fountain of youth. We had an old school juicer from the 90’s that we had never really used, so I decided to try one of the recipes that people were going crazy over. We’re considering modernizing somewhat and getting a more up to date model of juicer, maybe something like this citrus juicer from Hurom – https://www.hurom.com/products/cj-citrus-juicer.
This is a recipe that made me a believer. After making and drinking 2 pints of this stuff I was literally on a juice high for a week. The juice had me so buzzed I was waking up at 5:30 AM every day for week which is roughly about an hour before my mom actually goes off and I was going to bed between 11:30 PM and 12 AM each night.
Five stalks celery
Three handfuls of baby carrots or 3-4 whole carrots
