I juice about once to twice a week - about 32 oz worth of juice (check out some of my recipes here). I came to realize that I had so much juicing pulp leftover that was still nutritious and rich in fiber and thought it was kind of wasteful to just chuck it out all the time. I decided to research some creative ways to reuse the left over juicing pulp to alleviate that waste guilt.
Ok, so juicing has been the fad the last few years and for a variety of reasons. Anything from cleanses, detoxes, diet alternative, etc. Me, on the other hand, does it because it keeps my face really clear of acne and I like to get a healthy dose of vegetable nutrients I know I don't get on a daily basis (you don't have to worry about taking those multi-vitamins either).
After coming to terms with being a soreness-junkie post-workouts I realized that it can be really draining in my day to day activities – can we talk about legs-shaking-soreness while you are trying to balance over a public toilet? Yea that kind of soreness is getting in the way. Hanging clothes on a hanger shoulders-on-fire-cray-type-soreness.
I really like boxed goodies...whether it be clothes picked out by your own personal stylist or refrigerated boxes with all the ingredients you need to make some pretty awesome dishes. Platedfor being a relatively new food delivery service is pretty great with some minor issues that I think can be easily remedied.
I am sorry what? That was my first reaction when reading the first of many articles on the dangers of carrageenan in a variety of organic and non-organic products I was currently using on a daily basis! Just FYI, I am not one of those 'cancer is in everything' paranoid and organic-vegetarian-health-nuts; but I do consider myself a strict 'holding-government-agencies-accountable' when they just silently allow and sanction certain ingredients to be let loose in the cosmetic and food markets!
I didn’t really get into the swing of tea drinking until I was living in Japan and I started craving it every time I had a heavy greasy meal or I wanted a subtle caffeine jump to finish an essay for the night.
So I decided to create a new category to my blog posts reviewing some boxes my friends and I have ordered over the last year. These specialized boxes usually contain a few select items of a particular theme - anything from like food (FarmBox), makeup, clothes (Stichfix), hair products (Curlbox) etc.
I thought this would be a very interesting list of banned foods, additives, and preservatives to share, especially because I notice a couple of things on this list in foods I eat at least two or three times a week!
Instead of eating raw spinach with its grassy aftertaste everyday at work I figured a nice quick 8oz smoothie with some added sweetness might not be a bad idea, plus it might be a good pick-me-up post workouts since I always want to take a cat nap.
