A New Year

I don't even want to look at the date of my last post. New Year, new beginnings, MORE posts! I have three new years resolutions. 1) Get into Yoga 2) Eat more organic 3) BLOG MORE

I didn't really make life changing resolutions this year, but in a way I kind of did. I am trying to make improvements to my quality of life. For the past several years, I have become slightly obsessed with counting calories and exercising. In my opinion, it is very important to always be in a state of bettering yourself physically! Right now, I am trying to work on getting my body fat down.

As for my new years resolutions, so far so good! Took my first yoga class of the year today, stocked my fridge with basically the entire produce department (all of which was organic) and now I'm blogging!

Let my show you my weekend fling...

Soo, I went out and bought a juicer. In an effort to start the year off right, I wanted to 'detox'. I searched through a ton of green juice recipes and decided on Green Lemonade. As I was feeding the kale stalks into the juicer I was only thinking to myself how disgusting this was going to be. I was SO wrong, it was surprisingly delicious! Not to mention beyond super healthy for you...

Green Juice Detox Recipe (Green Lemonade)
1 head romaine lettuce
5-6 stalks of kale
2 sweet apples (I used Fuji)
1 whole lemon
1-2 tablespoons of fresh ginger root (I used 2)

Yogi quote of the day from my Peach Detox tea bag: "Your greatness is not what you have, it's what you give." I like that!
