Day 9: Never Fear!

NEVER FEAR, I have returned. To my blog at least. I have had a few comments concerned about me since I haven’t posted in awhile but trust me, it is not for a lack of caring. I have recently become unemployed and I have been searching for a job. Regardless, I am back to update all you fine readers on how I am doing.

Day NINE? Seriously? After tomorrow, I will already be a third of the way through this journey! That is incredible. Juicing is going well, my friends. I have two juices a day and my wonderful wife has been preparing some EXTREMELY healthy meals. Just like Joe has taught us, more than 50% veggies and 25% meats. I know that doesn’t make 100% but that is because we haven’t had anything other than veggies and a little bit of chicken for every meal. So, in reality, it is more like 75% veggies and 25% meat. They have tasted great too!

Exercise is not going as well as I would like. It has been SUPER cold here in Kansas the past 5 days so getting out to walk or jog… well just thinking of it makes my nose turn cold. I know weather is one of the worst excuses for not exercising but that is the way it is. I want to, that is for sure but it is just too stinkin’ cold.

What I Have Had For Juice

I am about to introduce you to a drink that I have been absolutely addicted to since I discovered it. I want to have this for every single juice, it is that good. It is more of a smoothie which is part of why I like it so much. It is filling and delicious. Alright, enough of my rambling, I better tell you what it is.

The Green Banana

1 Bunch Spinach OR Kale
1 Apple OR Orange
1 Pear
In a Blender, crush 1 cup of ice and then blend juice and 1 whole banana.

There you have it folks, the most delicious thing I have made in the past 5 days. The leafy greens make it all green but the banana is so strong, all you can taste is banana. There are so many nutrients in this drink it will knock your socks off. Give it a whirl. Big thanks to my friend Kerry who, with his wife, made up this awesome drink. It makes me think of this classic commercial…

So there you have it folks, I am doing well and still juicing and eating extremely healthy. This has been a fun ride so far and it will continue! Juice on!

  1. Woo Hoo! Sounds like you are doing great. And thanks for the recipe, now I know what I’m going to have for dinner tonight, for sure!!
    I’ve been making this AWESOME salad lately and it is so juicy and satisfying that I just had to share:

    Romaine Lettuce
    Red Cabbage
    Red Onion
    Red Pepper
    Orange, peeled and cut into bite size pieces
    1/2 Avocado
    Dash of Salt, Fresh Ground Pepper to taste
    Juice a lime over the whole thing

    It’s not only beautiful, but delicious too! And best of all…no meat!

  2. Great to see you have been going along ok with the juicing. I hope you find a job soon. I am definitely going to try that juice tonight, it sounds delicious.
