Mean Green

IMG_20131207_115326

Health booster that provides you with fiber, chlorophyll and antioxidants. This recipe is the perfect example of the 80% vegetables – 20% fruit  balance, tasty and refreshing, specially if we combine it with a morning sunbath and deep breaths. Sometimes I add an extra beet for sweetness or a slice of pineapple.  Drinking green juices can also help detox due to the chlorophyll!

Finally, after many cloudy days we had some sunlight, it was windy but still enjoyable under the sun. I rushed to wash all the vegetables and juice them so I could go outdoors and get some sun while drinking my mean green and play with Pirate (our dog).

Now, one hour later sunset is taking the light away, and that’s why during winter I prefer doing my workouts in the morning, afternoon workout feels like I’m training in the middle of the night, I guess as the winter days go by I will get used to the short days. Right now it’s time to make a fire to keep the house warm.
