Who Needs Coffee? Drink Juice!

Every morning, for the past month, I’ve consumed one thing. Juice.

It started as a cleanse but I liked the way my body felt so much that I decided to continue juicing and am LOVING the results.

I’ve been able to reduce my migraines, lose a bit of weight, save time cooking, AND I don’t drink coffee any more! I know…crazy pants!

The last time I drank any coffee was January. At first it just kind of happened because that’s what the cleanse called for, but then I made it a point to make sure I didn’t consume any and to replace it with a morning juice.

I usually wake up at six every morning and make a b-line to the juicer. I immediately make my Morning Go-Go Orange Juice. With the juicer set to high I combine:

6 Carrots
4 Apples
2 Lemons
6 Stalks Celery

This usually makes enough for two meals so I drink one for breakfast and use the other to mix in with a smoothie for lunch. It is incredibly healthy and pretty good for you! The apples help you stay fuller, longer. This is always a huge help when struggling to not snack my way through the day. The celery provide hydration. The lemons are great for digestion and to help your body absorb the nutrients more efficiently. Finally, the carrots contain just about everything that’s right in this world.

This juice is packed full of fiber and the micronutrients your body desires. In the morning we are usually dehydrated from a long night of resorting our bodies so giving yourself this morning jolt of goodness is just what your body needs.

I usually follow this up with a short but brisk 10-15 minute walk, a liter of water, and then get on with my day!

How do you start your day? Are you a coffee slave? Why not try juicing for just a week? I think you’d like it!
