The first step is admitting you have a problem. Hi, I’m Abbie and I’m a caffeine junky. Soda has never been my drink of choice, but I could down an iced coffee faster than you can say “onomatopoeia” and my thirst for iced tea is unquenchable. I’ve been clean for about two years. Well, relatively clean. A coffee and tea here and there – but a far cry from my former 6 shots of espresso a day. August of 2010 – I gave it up and never looked back. The headaches were as exhausting as the adrenal fatigue I was experiencing, but it was worth it.
Okay, I’ll admit it. I indulge in a weekly iced coffee – sweetened with a bit of honey and a shot of cream. (Enjoying one as I type). But for people married to their daily dose of caffeination and looking for a way out – I suggest a juicer. Yes, unleash your inner Jack LaLanne! I quit cold turkey, but I’m positive had I had a juicer in 2010, it would have made coming down from my caffeine binge far more pleasant.
For Christmas I got this guy and now juicing is my new addiction. Mornings aren’t the same without a tall glass of green. Nothing picks you up like 20 oz of the phytonutrients packed into a pound of fruits and vegetables. You can drink all the vegetables you dread eating and if you do it right – it’s pretty delicious.
I’m so amped on juicing that I want to share it with everyone. There is so much to teach, and so little time. My June goal is to document my Juicing knowledge and suggestions here on the old blogzilla …. so hopefully I can send friends, family, and strangers to it to read about my tips/tricks/suggestions.
So what are your questions? What do you want to know? How can I get you amped on juicing?
