I'm a Juicing Momma!!!

When I began cloth diapering, I thought I was nuts, now I can't imagine not doing it. When I began reading my friend Jill's book- Breaking Free ~ Truths for Healthy Living, and began to explore the idea of juicing, I thought I was a little nuts too. Anyone who really knows me is probably still thinking I am a bit nuts.

Nuts or not, I decided to give it a try, I went out and bought the juicer Jill recommended (which I LOVE), I made a big trip to Trader Joe's and stocked our fridge with TONS of veggies and fruits. I made a commitment to juice every day for at least 30 days.

I am very happy to say I have juiced every day for 10 days so far!!!! Honestly, I think I will probably juice for a very long time, I am in LOVE!!!! How else can you be sure to eat at least this amount of healthy veggies, and be sure your kiddos are getting them too???
I will be writing more posts about juicing from here on out, to share what works and what doesn't. I am truly so glad to have found this new addition to my life and diet.

Here's the juicing books I have so far, to continue to learn and juice!!!

Stay tuned for my next post to see what my boys are thinking of all this juicing!!!!

I look forward to hearing more. I have a Blendtec blender and I'm pretty sure that I can juice in it. We make a lot of smoothies but I haven't gone beyond that yet. Our new favorite ingredient for smoothies is coconut water - it is so good for you! Sorry, to get off topic.

i would like to also recommend for you to try smoothies or even a step further into green smoothies. they are so GREAT. my two little ones drink them so happily. i use fruits and then add green leafy veggies such as spinach (my favorite), lettuce, kale...check it out. there's tons if info about it on the web.

Thanks for posting about juicing. We own one and barely use it. There are times when I juice for days on end and then stop and months later I start again. Your post is my wake up call to juice again.

We love our Jack Lalaine Juicer! I agree - juicing is great! Truly a living food packed with nutrition, vitamins and enzymes that our body needs. :-)
