Now that my second child is well on his way to toddler-hood, I finally feel like I’m getting back to myself. Thirteen months of nursing took it out of this old lady, and I am ready to shake off the excess my body had (rightfully) been carrying. Of course, I’ve read all the benefits to juicing, the warnings of replacing meals with juice, and the body’s need to detox. Those are all well and good, and I look forward to the changes in my body. It’s what has happened off the scale since I started juicing that has me excited, and I’m here for that kind of change.
Here’s what changed when I started juicing:
I probably stayed away from juicing for so long because juicers are an expensive appliance and it seemed silly to spend the money. Don’t let the cost deter you! I found a used juicer on Facebook Marketplace for…$10. TEN. Check resale and garage sale groups to get your hands on one!
Juice ingredients in order, according to your juicer’s directions. Drink within 12 hours to receive the most nutritional benefits. Makes enough for 2 shots.
