KraZy Kiwi Juice & JUICING!

Kiwi-Krazy Juice Well hello there!
I know what you're thinking.
I just bet you're concerned thinking this blog is going to turn into an ALL JUICE blog!
Surely you know me better than that.
But I'll have to say; there's a whole-lotta juicin' goin' on around here!
JUICE!
We're discovering first hand all the benefits of JUICING!
Greg jumped on the GREEN JUICE band wagon awhile back and he's like a new man!
I'm totally not kidding! He feels fabulous! And he looks fabulous!
The other day I seriously asked him if he'd gotten a spray tan! Not that he ever has, but he has so much color in his skin. It's like he's been off on a vacay basking in the sunshine!
His eyes are bright and his skin is glowing!
Not to mention how happy it makes me feel to see my man going off to work every morning with loads of energy and a big jug of green juice!
He's even been stocking up on BluePrint Juice from Whole Foods. The other day he called from work and was sipping BluePrint's beet-carrot-apple-lemon-ginger juice.
Who is this man?
I love it!
I love him!
Photobucket This weekend we juiced up some kiwi!
Greg says the KraZy Kiwi Juice is the best yet!
I think we're just falling in love with fresh juice.
Or maybe I'm just turning into a master-ful JUICER! ;)  Photobucket

Here's the thing about juicing.
It takes time.
It's messy.
The kitchen goes from nice and tidy to wet cutting boards, lots of veggies, fruit and a colander.
The juicer itself takes up mega room on the counter, and it's loud. Like really loud!
There's chopping involved.
Messy kitchen + loud noise + chopping = Things I don't like first thing in the morning.
I'm sure there's an easier way, but I haven't found it yet.
Photobucket So what's the reward?
Why juice?
Why would anyone want to tackle a messy, loud veggie filled kitchen first thing every day?
The only way you will ever understand "why" is to experience it yourself.
At first you'll feel awkward.
I really wish I had a video of my face the first time I cranked up THE JUICER.
I'm almost positive I sent Bridget a text.
It honestly felt so foreign and strange and waaaaaaaaay too much trouble.
Turns out the more I juiced, the less weird it felt.
The more I juiced, the more natural it became.
Here's the bottom line.
When I drink a glass of GREEN juice I feel healthy.
Immediately.
It's like a rush of good health.
I feel nourished.
I feel like I'm being GOOD to ME!
I can hear my body saying "thank you."
When I can look at my husband and see a spark that hasn't been there in awhile.
When I see skin that is glowing and eyes that are twinkling.
When I feel the energy!!!
When the energy plays out as I practice yoga, walk the fur-balls, sew for Bloom, and greet my hubby at night.
That's when I don't mind the messy kitchen and the loud roar of the juicer.
That's when I know I'll be juicing from now until forever.
That's when I totalllllllllly get why those that JUICE, do it with PASSION!
That's why I want to share my love of juicing with YOU!
Krazy-Kiwi Juice
Thanks for your patience.
I know I sound like a broken-juicing record lately.
Thanks to those of you who have emailed and instagramed and facebooked and tweeted that you are enjoying 40 Days of Healthy Whole Eating & Living.
I've got some yummy recipes to share this week.
I have a feeling 40 days is going to turn into 40 more days and then 40 more.
Everyday we grow.
Cheers to a healthy journey.
Find the BIG FAT fun straws here! I just love big fat straws!
***Juice in BluePrint bottles is the Kiwi Juice. 
We recycle the bottles and fill them with juice for on the go!***

    1. Yes!
      Yes!
      It will last in the fridge. Just give it a stir right before drinking.
      I'm thinking about juicing the night before so the juice will be ready.
      Just added a link for the big FAT straws at the end of the post!

  6. I thought those BluePrint bottles were a cleanse thing, so I've never paid attention to them. I'm going to look next time I'm at the store. That one Greg was drinking sounds really yummy!

    You're making me want a juicer. I want my skin to glow!!! :)

    1. B!
      There is a BluePrint Cleanse offered on their website.
      You can buy the individual BluePrint Juices at Whole Foods which is what G has been doing.
      If you buy a JUICER I'm coming to TEXAS to see your face the first time crank it up!
      And don't you worry about GLOWING!
      You GLOW bright everyday!

  7. Hi! I love your blog! Thanks so much for all the inspiration!

    It's so weird that I'm writing this, but my son just completed a science fair project on tooth decay and acidic drinks. I certainly don't want to rain on anybody's parade, but be careful with your acidic juices...rinse your mouth with water and wait 30 minutes before brushing so you don't brush away tooth enamel and leave your teeth helpless!

    You probably already know this...sorry if I'm sounding critical...surely only mean to be helpful!

    xoxo

      You're not sounding "critical" at all. Thanks so much for the tip on rinsing.
      Loss of tooth enamel is a huge concern.
      Thanks so much for the reminder to rinse.
      Hugs!
