Deliciously Organized Health

The story behind my health journey: 


Over the past few years I've grown to have a strong passion for changing my diet.  My best friend started a raw diet years ago and at the time I didn't know what to expect from her.  It was beyond me, and I didn't think the idea of RAW food sounded like something I would ever be a part of {did you know they  have raw restaurants? they do...I've been to a few, crazy}!   But after a year of observing her incredible results, I knew she was onto something.  I drilled her for weeks about what to eat, drink and practically breathe to be healthier.  I researched health like it was my job.  The more I read, the more intrigued I was by the control you could have over your well being, by using just your diet.  


I never went full on raw, it just wasn't something I was willing to commit to, but I was adding a green smoothie to my diet once daily and began to feel incredible.  This then led to healthier eating habits during the day and encouraged me to make more trips to the yoga studio. After time, I grew more and more busy and put it on the back burner, only doing a small detox here and there.  I'm hoping this series will get me back on my path.






This is the juicer I have and love:


It is a  Breville Juice Fountain Elite.  Almost all the pieces can go in the dishwasher, it's an easy clean up, and so far I've had no problems with it. 



This is my favorite juice recipe from Natalia Rose's, The Raw Food Diet Detox:


Green Lemonade





1 head of romaine lettuce or celery
5 or 6 stalks of kale
1 to 2 apples
1 whole organic lemon
1 to 2 tablespoons of fresh ginger


I prep my bags for my juice at the beginning of the week:



and then get started...I don't add my items in any specific order and you don't have to peel your lemon.



I use a funnel to put the juice into an old milk jar for storage:


Always best to drink fresh, but you can store them in the fridge for a few days.  Although it is GREEN, it doesn't taste like veggies at all.  The apples and lemon cover the veggie taste.  It's delicioius.

  1. I enjoy juicing, too! My biggest problem is finding the space in my fridge for all those volumninous veggies that juice down to almost nothing. Thanks for sharing this.
