Crazy Sexy Juice

This whole juicing business is giving me loads of energy and I'm feeling like a million dollars. That 2pm afternoon nap that I always wished I could have? Yeah, not even an issue anymore. Nap? What's that and who needs it? :) This morning, I didn't even feel like I might kill somebody if I didn't have my coffee. That totally freaked me out, so I made some anyway :)

 Instead of drooling on the couch, I'm rockin' out to Audioslave, having my first official green juice and grinning over the fact that I folded ALL of the laundry today. Yes, you read that correctly. I did not put it all in a pile and burn it like I've so often threatened to do, but instead I kicked its ass.

My green juice recipe consists of half of a large cucumber, 2 stalks of celery, 6 leaves of Romaine lettuce, 1 pear and a half inch chunk of ginger. There's supposed to be kale & broccoli in there too, but I didn't have those things so I skipped them this time.
I was a little apprehensive about trying green juice, but I was actually pleasantly surprised at how good it tastes. I could probably do without the celery taste maybe, but it kind of reminds me of drinking a Caesar so I'll just go with it. :)
Last night I made Carrot Apple Ginger Tea Cakes out of the pulp that was leftover from my carrot, apple, ginger drink. They're quite yummy! You can find the easy recipe over at Food Thinkers.
I've also been watching episodes of Eat Yourself Sexy. The show mostly deals with busy mothers who always put themselves last. Hmm...that sounds vaguely familiar :)
