My Morning Lemonade

Last week I joined a friend and went on a "Spring Clean" juicing week.  For 7 days I did it!  The first few were hard.  The best way to describe how I felt was blue.  I wasn't really hungry, and I didn't really have horrible cravings, I just wanted to eat.  I had lost a favorite thing, and I missed it.  Eventually that went away, and I felt great!  Fantastic is a good word to describe it.  James kept looking at me and commenting on how I was glowing:)  He's just a nice guy, but really my skin did look so pretty.  To be honest I didn't loose any weight, but I would do it again in a heartbeat for how it felt.  You felt clean, and I was still able to keep running and do everything I usually do.  Thanks to my friend Kristie for challenging me, and many others.  Here's a link to her website.  (She actually just started a 30 day RAW challenge if you're interested.)

Every morning I started with this Lemonade.  Actually I still make it most mornings because I love it!  If you google benefits of Lemon Water there are a ton.   I'm no expert, so I won't tout any great benefits other than it's such a nice way to start the day.  Don't worry if you don't have a juicer.  Just do your best to squeeze all the love out of that lemon and orange and you'll be just fine.  I like to use warm water when I make this, but ice cold would be great too.

My Morning Juice
recipe courtesy The Belly Fit Club

1 orange peeled and juiced
1 lemon peeled and juiced

Place in quart sized Mason jar, and fill to the top with water.  I like warm water, but do what you like.  Add sweetener to taste.  I use a good squeeze of Stevia, but anything would work.  Sip and enjoy!

  4. Hi there! I know this is kinda off topic however I'd figured I'd ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa?

    My blog addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each
    other. If you happen to be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  5. I may have to call you so you can talk me through a cleansing. I have to do it before our YSA ward leaves for the summer as Mike is never home right now and I might be able to pull it off without having to fix meals for him. I need a recharge. And a shot of cortisone in my dang ITB.

  6. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. There's no doubt that that you need to publish more on this topic, it may not be a taboo matter but generally people do not talk about these issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

  10. The big difference in the paleo diet during breakfast.
    Some variations of the paleo diet is less interesting to me, as I tone my muscles
    and add new muscle tissue. As most readers of Engadget are well aware, in the meantime, the Genotype Diet book
    is highly recommended to check with a doctor before trying it.
