I went to the University of Michigan…but lately I’m not going Blue.
I’m going Green!
Going green for Juice! Not for Michigan State. Sorry Spartans. I’ll always be a Wolverine at heart. But to get down to business, I’ve been starting my day with a green juice lately, and I’ve never felt better. I gulp it down with a dash of cayenne pepper stirred in and savor the green goodness. When you make your own juices, the nutrients are all intact, fresh, and easily absorbed. Store bought juices have little to no nutritional impact by the time you buy them and consume them. Here’s the recipe for the organic green juice I made today.
- 2 cups Arugala
- 1 cup celery
- 1 cup kale
- 1 cup parsley
- 3 strawberries
- 1/2 medium tomato
- Dash of salt, black pepper, ground cayenne pepper.
All ingredients I used were organic, since many of them are listed on the dirty dozen list. I’m getting more and more into juicing my veggies and fruits, and am glad it’s turning into a habit–finally a good one!
I also want to share a little something that I love doing.
I’ve been enjoying making Origami paper cranes, and recently got artsy with it during some down time at work (shhhh! Don’t tell on me..) I printed the words “I love you” multiple times on a blank sheet of paper and folded the crane as usual. I gave it to Yan as a cute gift, and now it proudly sits on top of our bookshelf. Sometimes the smallest things make the biggest impact.
