happy thanksgiving every one. hope you have had a fantastic weekend with family and friends. i had a great one but as always after big festivities, i feel very stuffed with a lot of great food. i am a big fan of good food and traditions, love thanksgiving festivities, and i am not just a healthy eater. i love butter and cookies and pies and a big fat turkey but I have been eating a lot these days. it started with halloween parties, then thanksgiving and there are going to be many christmas parties in the next couple of weeks. i feel so stuffed that I feel it could be great to take a break from so much heavy food and give my stomach the chance to take a break and get excited about christmas. we bought a juicer recently and i thought what a better way than detoxing my body with some fresh juice. i am not going on a juice diet or any thing extreme; i just try to substitue my snacks between the meals with fresh pressed juices these days. this way i get a lot more vitamins and minerals from fresh pressed ingredients and i also get full between the meals and eat less. i'm also going to add a half hour dance in my schedule every day. i know it sounds too much but just going to the gym is getting boring and trying to make my own music and dance to it once a day gives another motivation to change up the habits.
so here i share a couple of my detoxing juices with you. one of my favorites is watermelon juice. slice the watermelon into small chunks, put them in the blender and enjoy it fresh. if you live in california watermelons are usually ripe and sweet but if they are not, you could add a little bit of honey in the blender.
another juice i share with you today is a mixed green detox juice. i juiced 4 stalks of celery, one cucumber, a handful of parsley, and a bunch of spinach. then added some lemon juice for taste. this juice tastes very fresh but a small cup of it is enough to get all those great vitamins and minerals. enjoy!
