Suja Juice Cleanse GIVEAWAY & The Benefits of Juicing

Suja Cleanse-1-2

Have you ever done a juice cleanse? Recently I have seen quite the increase in people juicing and doing cleanses and it never really interested me until the IFBC conference back in September where I was introduced to a brand called Suja who sells cold-presses juices and will deliver straight to your door (everywhere in the US). You can buy their juices individually at certain retailers, but they are best known for their cleanses; you can purchase a 1, 3 or 5 day cleanse but of course you don't have to do a cleanse you can just enjoy their delicious juices. As a disclaimer, I received a … [Read more...]

Depending on the source and your personal reaction to them, they might not be best for you. For me, they are one of my favorite breakfasts and even great for dinner (egg tacos, quiche, frittatas).

Meal Planning Monday & a Little On Organics

Wow did this week go by fast! I can't believe it's already Sunday and time to plan meals. I'll have to admit I am going to be a bit lazy this week on my meal planning. I attempted grocery shopping on Saturday along with the rest of the people on post. Super irritating. Everyone was going for the same BBQ items, the produce was picked over and I couldn't handle the traffic in the store. I ended up with about 1/3 of my list and just plan on winging it this week and using things from my freezer. As you meal plan this week, or even if you skip it and just grocery shop for the week I thought it … [Read more...]
