Beauty Juice

This juice will help to rid your body of toxins and improve kidney function, leading to healthy glowing skin. I try to drink lemon water every morning but this day I wanted to switch things up so I threw these ingredients into the juicer and drank up!! This was a breakfast substitute because I was in a rush (a late breakfast, only 1.5 hours before lunch…)

Orange + Apple + Celery + Lemon + Ginger Juice Recipe

  • 2 oranges
  • 1 Apples
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 1 lemon
  • Ginger, to taste (I used 4oz of brewed Yogi Ginger Tea)

This recipe made about 22 oz. The mason jar only holds around 18 (If I fill to the rim) so I gave the rest to my daughter. We loved it!!!

I use a Jack Lalanne Power Juicer Deluxe

I choose not to eat meat that often for environmental, ethical, and health reasons. When I do purchase meat at the store it is organic, free-range, and vegetarian fed; this includes my eggs… Now with that miniature rant out of the way here is my Vegan Kale, Mushroom, Quinoa Pilaf!!!quin1-001
