Juicing

A while ago I watched a documentary called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. 
If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it. 

Here is a summary of the documentary: 
100 pounds overweight, loaded up on steroids and suffering from a debilitating autoimmune disease, Joe Cross is at the end of his rope and the end of his hope. FAT, SICK & NEARLY DEAD is an inspiring film that chronicles Joe's personal mission to regain his health. With doctors and conventional medicines unable to help long-term, Joe turns to the only option left, the body's ability to heal itself. He trades in the junk food and hits the road with juicer and generator in tow, vowing only to drink fresh fruit and vegetable juice for the next 60 days. {via}

Anyways, the documentary is obviously about juicing and the affect it had on Joe's life. It's was transforming and incredible! I sat back and thought...WOW, I need to start juicing NOW! Well it took me a while, but after saving up some Kohl's Cash and a 30% off I got my first juicer!! 

Here is my juicer! 




I LOVE my juicer! The first week I got it I juiced for breakfast every morning. I felt great...had more energy, felt healthier, and my 17 month old son loved helping me! 




I was a little nervous about starting the juicing process because I have heard horror stories about some of the juice recipes out there. So, for the first week I made up my own recipes. MOST were good! I did write down all my recipes and my opinions on them and will post some recipes this weekend so stay tuned! 

Have you ever try juicing? Do you have a go-to recipe that you love?
