A Healthy Drink & A Shabby Chic Sneak Peek

 Hi all!
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
I wanted to share a healthy drink with you and a photo shoot
sneak peek.

Here are some shots from a Shabby Chic project I did a few weeks
ago for a feature that I hope to soon share with you.
HGTV 1 065_1On another note…
I am on a serious health kick lately.
Now that I have 2 boys, I want to be healthy and strong for them.
Something about having children that makes you
want to live forever. I go on a walks with them everyday and I am watching what I eat.
I got this idea from a local health food store and I just changed it a bit.
It is really easy and quick.
I drink one a day.
Green Monster 082_1Ingredients
One bunch of parsley
One bunch of kale
3 cucumbers
One bunch of celery
One bunch of spinach
3 apples
Green Monster 0799
Rinse all the veggies and fruit. Put through a Juicer.
The apple is what I added to it. It will take away the bitter
taste of the raw green veggies and  it gives the drink a sweet taste.
It is REALLY healthy for you!
Did you know that Kale helps the fight against Cancer???
Here’s to your health!
Have a wonderful start to your week!

  7. thanks for the info! i was hoping you didn't mean a bunch like how it comes from the store. you would need a serious amount of veggies for that! happy juicing and great health to you!
