Good morning lovelies

Like many others I have read about the health benefits of green juicing. So since my indulgences over our long weekend has been quite taxing on my body, I thought it was finally time to begin this daily juicing ritual.

Due to sheer laziness (hate cleaning) I have avoided using this juicer that I was gifted to me well over 2 years ago. You are required to cut you fruits and vegies in narrow pieces and then washing the juicer itself is a bitch. I find the preparation and cleaning so much easier with a blender.

That said it’s manageable if you prepare your fruits and vegetables in advance plus the feel good factor once you’ve enjoyed your drink makes it all the worth while. The juice pulp can also be used in your sald mix which is exactly what I will be doing today. Best part is- it’s already all chopped up.

So whats in this green juice
2 celery stalks (with leaves on)
1 big handful of spinach
2 golden kiwifruits (skin on)
2 pink lady apples (skin on)
1 pear (skin on)

Its fresh, delicious and goes down easy. My little tot enjoyed some too.

Makes 2 glasses and its recommended to consume on the day for maximum benefits.

Thanks for reading and I hope this post has inspired you to begin juicing.



Raw Pasta

Evening all

So it turns out that my day didn’t go so well today. I had a sick little bubba so was doing most of my day to day activities with one hand and carrying a clingy baby in the other.

Luckily I prepared tonights dinner the night before. Since its raw, apart from the prep there’s not much cooking involved. I came across the Raw Food Sisters website whilst looking for some clean eating inspiration which is where I got the recipe from. My only variation is I added agave nectar to the sauce and served my dish up with some hommus and fresh snow pea sprouts. Thumbs up people! Clean, delish and simple to make. 

Think I might try making the raw risotto dish next.
