Mama Always Said To Eat Your Fruits and Veggies

     Last week my husband and I watched a movie called "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead."  It's a documentary about a man who embarks on a journey to lose weight and regain health by doing a juice fast.  Here's the trailer:


Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead - Official Trailer from Team Reboot on Vimeo.

     It is a very inspirational and educational film.  You can watch the entire 1 hour 37 minute movie right here on your computer.
     After the movie, we wanted to taste the Green Juice that was highlighted in the story.  It's delicious and refreshing!  And since I've started to focus more on my own health and fitness, this juice is a perfect addition to my ever-improving diet.  I'd like to share the recipe here and encourage you to try it if you have a chance.



Green Juice
2 cups kale
2 cups spinach
1/2 cucumber
4 stalks celery
2 green apples
1" ginger root (which I don't like so I leave that out)

Here's to your health!
