{Twisted Watermelon Juice} with Grey Goose

I took the night off last night, to enjoy time with dear hubby.  We had drinks on the patio as we watched the sun set, peering into each other's eyes, remembering why we had first fallen in love oh those many years ago.  OK, it wasn't quite as Titantic-esque as I'm describing, but it sure was a nice break from the regular fast pace of weekday nights!  We were on the patio.  We did have alcoholic beverages.  And we were together, listening to one another, and just being a coup ...

Roly Poly Amazement + {Veggie Garden Juice}

OK, first a confession.  I woke up in kind of a bad mood.  Which should be illegal on Saturdays.  I don't really know WHY I was in a bad mood, I just wasn't feeling particularly happy or excited about the day.  But, then I put on some tunes and danced in the living room with Babycakes to my favorite song... and all was well with my world again.  She and I played with markers, ie. ...

Reboot Part 3: Grocery List & Menu

First, a picture of my loves: dear hubby and Babycakes being silly together.  Awwwww.  Well, let me tell you this - I am VERY excited about cherries and apples and bell peppers and tomatoes and carrots tomorrow!  I don't know how some people do the juicing for SIXTY days!!  Wowsers.  So, as you know, I'm heading into the final phase of the Reboot today.  Days 11 - 15 are similar to Days 1 - 5: a combination of eating limited fruits/veggies plus some juicing.  I do want to mention here that th ...

Eating is Social + {Reboot Sunset Juice}

OK, officially I'm on Day 9 (of 15)...more than halfway there!  Overall I've felt pretty good during this Reboot...better than the first time I did it, I think because my body is already "rebooted"...the sugar craving was already dead before I started.  One thing you'll notice though, if you ever do a Reboot of your own, is how SOCIAL eating is.  Everytime family gets together, it's to share a big meal.  If you're meeting up with a girlfriend, you'll often go ...

Reboot Part 2 JUICE ONLY: Menu, Shopping List, & Cost

So the first 5 days of the Reboot are coming to a close.  I'm headed into the JUICE ONLY portion of the Reboot...a part which I think is almost easier than the really strict "eating/juicing" phase.  There's something nice about less choices.  What am I going to eat today?  Um, juice.  It is recommended (and I agree) that you should try to reach an 80/20 ratio between veggies and ...

Veggie Garden Progress + {Pink Kale Juice}

I am so excited that dear hubby helped me plan, dig, and build my first real veggie garden this weekend.  It's still too cold to plant (hence the indoor tabletop garden to start), but getting the infrastructure and soil ready for planting is most of the hard work!   I scoured the aisles of the local Lowe's to determine what sort of material I wanted to use for the sides / walls of my rais ...

A Tabletop Garden + {Cucumber Melon Juice}

So when I saw the name of this juice highlighted on the Jointhereboot website, the first thing that came to mind was Bath & Bodyworks' hand lotion.  This both excited me and worried me at the same time.  I can honestly say I've never once felt the desire to lick my hands after putting on this lotion, so I wasn't so sure a juice made out of cucumber and melon would taste very good!  I was skeptical, but thought it was worth a try.  The ...

Recipe: Carbeeple = Carrot Beet Apple Juice!

Happy Monday folks!  I hope you enjoyed your weekend & St. Patty's day as much as I did.  Evidently I was in creative mode all weekend because I created a brand new delicious Citrus Kale Salad... AND  I made up a new name for my 2nd favorite juice: Carbeeple!  It's a mix between carrots, beets, and apples.  Mmmmmm!  It's super sweet and loaded with nutrients.  And that color would make a beautiful lipstick :)
