Spring Medicine in a Jar!
While I was super grateful for one last cozy snow day of the year, I’m really looking forward to Spring. I have been traveling a lot and out of the house way too much for this work from home dog mom. My poodle, Molly was so happy to have a warm lap to nest in for the day. She’s kind of like an extra appendage some days. I’m sure you can relate. 😉 #clingy
While I would have loved to have spent the entire day on the couch, I spent the 1st half of the day doing some food prep for the rest of the weekend and the week again and making green juice for the fam, and the plow guy. You know I have a thing about nourishing. I sometimes make him gluten free goodies, or my #betterthan Mocha Lattes, but he requests my green juice! Who am I to turn the hard working man down? I gotta help him stay fueled up.
Benefits of Drinking Green Juice:
- Packed with nutrition.
- Full anti-oxidents that fight disease causing free-radicals.
- Greens produce chlorophyll, which oxygenates the body
- Improves digestion
- Balances PH Levels in the body
- Generates cellular vitality
- Increases energy
- Boosts mental clarity and brain function
- Builds immune system
Because juicing is a bit time consuming, I make a big batch that lasts for 2-3 days.
Don’t have a juicer?
No worries, I didn’t either until recently and I used my high speed blender. It’s easy as 1-2-3. See below for instructions.
PS: Remember my pups…? They LOVE the pulp!
I feed them a raw diet so I add all my juice pulp to their food. No waste. Even if you feed your dogs kibble, you can still add this on top for extra fiber, nutrients and #rawgoodness.
