While I was in San Diego I found something new I want to try to get into....Juicing! Do you ever go to the store buy a lot of produce and then during week are so blah about eating it? That happens to me A LOT in general and now that much more now that I am pregnant. Vegetables and anything nutritious sounds gross (hence making lemon bars). I am also a huge snacker and can be too lazy to prep anything good to eat. I am a lot of talk about wanting to eat healthy but I don't really fully act on it.
My sister in law is so good about being healthy. She has more willpower than myself at giving up certain foods so I commend her on that. She's also getting her yoga teaching credentials and taught a class for me and it was great! After yoga and in the morning she would make me a juice of vegetables and fruit. It had Kale, Celery, lemon, ginger, apples, cucumber. Sounds a little gross but it was amazing. I could have downed like 3 glasses. Tasted like lemonade to me, plus was so healthy.
She has also lost a good amount of weight and looks fabulous. Not that I can diet now but the juicing alone I felt healthier. Getting those vitamins I was missing by throwing away vegetables and fruit i didn't want to eat felt great.
For those interested in juicing here is the juicer they used:

Here is the diet she follows, its really not all that strict if you read through. I have found that low carb and low calorie diets tend to be harder. I cannot wait to follow this book after I am done being pregnant.

I must note that the best part about the book is that I wouldn't have to give up my wine. woo hoo! Cheers!
