Juicy Girl

Hey everyone! Thanks so much for your awesome feedback on the “Getting Started” post 🙂 Hope your Indian Food Wednesday has been going well.

As ya’ll know, I’m a Juicy Girl.

Not just this kind of juicy:

THIS kind of juicy:


I’ve been juicing everything under the sun today, which I full attribute to the GLORIOUS weather.

It started out this morning, when I made a raw vegan Red Bull (aka green juice) before walking the puppers:


Into the mix went:

-1 cucumber

-lots of spinach

-4 kale ribs

-a green apple

-1/2 lemon


-1/2 t spirulina

All organic. All delicious.

green juice

The puppies hide when I turn the juicer on… I think they’re afraid I might juice them.


I would never 😀

The pilot had an orange-apple juice, we walked the puppies for 30 minutes, munched breakfast and then Ashley and I hit up a local farmer’s market.

In other words, Publizzle lost a lot of business today—the produce was so FRESH and inexpensive.

I took a blurry Crackberry pic.. didn’t want to get in trouble my first time in there for snapping pictures


The prices were seriously out of control.

-bunches of collard greens for .79

-3 lbs sweet potatoes for $1

-pint of strawberries, $1

-local honey, $5.99 for a giant jar

-and other ridiculous deals

I bought a bunch of produce for the juicer and for my face (plums, strawberries, avocado, apples, pears, sweet potatoes) and honey for the pilot..and spent $11!! CRAZY. I’ll be back fo sho.

Ashley and I came back to my casa, lounged by the pool for an hour and then I made smoothies and juice for us.

She had a Spice-C smoothie (recipe from 105degrees)


And I had a small taster of the Spice-C with a juice made of carrots, beet, ginger, cayenne and death. It tasted so bad.. definitely needs an apple in there next time, or some Stevia.


We met Jeni at the gym and dominated our backs for an hour. I’m going to be pleasantly sore tomorrow 🙂

I get asked pretty often what my favorite juice recipes are. The thing is, I’m not that creative when it comes to juices.. I usually roll with the green juice mentioned above –if I’m feeling crazy, I’ll add some parsley- or carrot, apple, beet. I’d love to get more creative! What are you favorite juice recipes??

Well I’m off to work, then INDIAN!!! Wahoo! 🙂

    I’ve been wanting to get a juicer for a while. I’m sure my Daughter would love it.

    Love all the juices! All of them so are pretty 😉 Favorite juice is carrot, beets, cucumber.

    All the juices sound really great. I have always wanted a juicer, but I feel like I will never use it. Does it take a lot of work and clean up? I’ll stick to smoothies for now, but those colors look fantastic. And I can’t wait till the Farmers Market opens near me. YAY for spring!

    You’ve inspired me to try so many new things in the past year! We recently bought a juicer…received it yesterday, actually. So I’ll be hitting up the store tonight for juice ingredients. Do you think juicing w/out adding sugar and sugar substitutes will help with weightloss? There’s so much buzz about fiber in fruits, I wonder if juicing will completely cut out the fiber.

    • Fitnessista on March 25, 2010 at 12:51 pm

      yes juicing does eliminate most of the fiber, making it easier to digest. i think it can definitely help with weightloss because your body can focus on doing other things instead of breaking down the juice

    well I have a question for you!

    I am new to green monsters… I am confused on how I add the Kale and how many leaves? Last time I added like 6 leaves and it was terrible. should I add just the leafy part; just the stem part in the middle? how many?

    • Fitnessista on March 27, 2010 at 10:31 am

      do you mean green monster like a smoothie?? i juice the kale leaves, i never blend them into smoothies because they taste horrible to me, haha. juiced, they taste ok 🙂
