Tired of Being TiredDo you find it challenging to pull yourself out of bed in the morning? Are you living on that triple shot Caramel Macchiato?  Are you tempted to nap every afternoon?  Does your body protest when your brain feels like exercising?  Do you feel like fatigue is all that separates you from your mojo?

If you suffer from low energy and fatigue, you’re not alone.  I know it sounds like Im revving up for a commercial and I guess I am of sorts LOL :)

Truth is, more than half the population reports feeling tired often, and as many as 80% of women around the age of menopause say they are tired most of the time.

I understand.  Been there.  Felt that!

I have a solution (Okay, heres your commercial except Im not getting paid for it LOL) A way to get started thats easy delicious and will help to get your mojo back!

Green Drinks

I love to start my day off with a green drink because its a great way to get lots of pure veggie vitamins and nutrients which creates wait for it


For some reason, the idea of green drinks scares some people.  I dont know if its because they think they dont like veggies; or they think they need some kind of perfect recipe like Dr. Ozs Green Drink Recipe or well, I dont know the other or.  I just know green drinks scare people and they shouldnt.

First of all, theyre delicious!  Seriously TASTY!  Secondly, you can make them with any combination of veggies (and a bit of fruit for sweetness) that you like.

Because I know so many people are skerred to get creative with their green drink, I thought Id occasionally post the recipe, or lack thereof, that Im drinking that day.

Todays Green Drink Juice Recipe Sept 26, 2009

  • 1 head celery (that means the whole darn thing, all the stalks and greens)
  • 1/2 bunch kale
  • 3 yellow crookneck squash
  • 2 paddy pan squash
  • 1 handful fresh green beans
  • 2 apples
  • 1 grapefruit (peeled, but if its organic, you can put the peel in the juicer too!)

Throw it all in your favorite juicer (mine is the Breville Elite Juice Fountain because it is amazingly fast, produces lots of juice and is easy to clean.)

Using the above recipe will make about four large glasses of vitamin and nutrient packed juice.  Plenty to share :)

Bottoms up!  Healthier, shapelier, bottoms ;)

Hi David, I L-O-V-E my Vita-mix, you know I do! Its my #1 Cant Live Without kitchen appliance. In terms of juicing in the Vita-mix, what you really get is a delicious smoothie, and I do drink green smoothies too BUT if I really want a pure juice, without the fiber, I turn to my Breville Juice Fountain Elite. It really juices all the nutrients out of the pulp (leaving a VERY dry pulp) and I can actually drink more juice which gives me more nutrients compared to a smoothie. Great question though, David! Both are good alternatives and I… Read more »
