Pick me up!

It’s Monday! New week, fresh start.

Since its afternoon here, maybe later for some, I thought I would share a little afternoon treat, or rather a way to help combat the craving for bad afternoon treats. And if you know me well, you know what I am going to share is a treat for me. I love me some JUICE! It’s the perfect way to satisfy the sweet tooth.

It’s common to feel slightly sluggish in the afternoon. Our bodies are metabolizing lunch and go through a natural lull. It’s also common for people to start craving some sugar, a pick me up, in the afternoon. DON’T DO IT! You know you’re just going to crash after. No bueno :-(

Instead, take a walk, drink a tall glass of water, and munch on some healthy, natural sugars. Here enters Green Juice!! You already know it’s packed full of vitamins and nutrients,it is kicked into your system immediately, and when you add some fruit (apple, lemon, orange), you can totally kick that sugar cravings booty! Loading up on the good helps knock out room (cravings) for the bad.

Here’s what I just whipped up:
