It’s a three-way! (as in, juice, three ways)

20140518-121343.jpgOh man, I’m gonna have so many pervy googlers clicking through to my blog thanks to the above title. But hey, at this early stage in my blogging career, a hit is a hit!

But onto the actual premise of this post: juice.

One time I went on a juice cleanse. I lasted 37 minutes. Like, I literally sat down, made a plan, bought, like, a million dollars worth of organic fruits and veggies, and then within minutes was like, “Fuck this shit, I need to chew something.” So I did. I chewed everything. I felt so deprived during those 37 minutes that I probably consumed a week’s worth of calories in the hour following.

Let me explain: when I’m told that I can’t have something, I want it immediately and with such intensity that I will risk all self respect and decency to get it. Even when it’s my own doing, I cannot be told no.

It really has been a life-long battle.

So rather than, you know, learning to overcome this epic flaw in myself, I’ve just decided to never tell myself never. (Wait, did I just say I never say never? Mind. Blown.) And in fact, I’ve found this is a much better way to live, because I now pride myself on moderation and balance.

So back to the juice. I love juice. Do I like juice for every meal? Hells no. But a few times a week? Yes, absolutely. It’s a great way to get a lot of nutrients in a small package; it’s fun to experiment with different fruit/veggie combos; aaaand it makes me feel like a total health yuppy, which is pretty fun sometimes.

Here are three of my fave combos.

Go Green Juice
This juice is, like, in-your-face bam! The green apple lends just enough sweetness to mellow out the bitterness of the greens and the tartness of the lemon.

Watermelon Strawberry Daiquiri Juice
Perfect for a hot summer’s day. (Great for juice newbs who can’t handle all the veg.)

The Classic
This is our go-to juice combo. Not too sweet. Not too bitter. Just right. And the ginger adds this extra oomph that’s oh-so refreshing.
