a juicy day

I’m a big believer that the state of your skin has as much to do with what you choose to put on your skin as it does with what you put in your body. Eating fresh fruits and veggies is a key component to bright, healthy looking skin due to the vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients that help your body stay strong and fight disease.

Juicing is a great way to add more fruits and veggies into your diet which is why I was so  excited to get a Breville juicer for my birthday. I’ve been experimenting with a few different recipes (like the one pictured above) as I’m not shy when it comes to trying new things ONCE, but every now and then I do need to b-tch slap my twelve-year old self into realizing once needs to become frequent and no, desserts no matter how healthy do not make an acceptable side-dish at dinner.

Do you like to juice? If so, share some of your favourite recipes with me!

p.s. on a separate topic I’m heading to the annual Lainey Gossip SMUT Soiree tonight. It’s a huge event where close to 1,000 women gather to nosh on hors d’oeuvres, drink fancy cocktails and listen like school children to Lainey share the juiciest of celebrity gossip. Check back tomorrow to see the outfit I wore as well as a recap of the night!

    i did a juice cleanse last week and I swear the #1 change I saw was in my skin. I felt like I was glowing. I’m totally on board with what you say about your skin having as much to do with what you put in on it as what you put in your body.

    • Hey Maria – so happy to hear you’re seeing a positive impact on your skin! how long did you do your juice cleanse for?

        I did it for 3 days.

        it was the total cleanse “energize” cleanse.

        a bit pricey, but a good way to try out a cleanse program for the first time.

        • Glad the investment paid off 🙂
