Bright-Eyed & Bushy-Tailed

“The time will come when men such
as I will look upon the murder
of animals as they now look
on the murder of men.”
Leonardo da Vinci

Bright Eyed

When you’re feeling good, your body and mind have more energy. You want to get out and explore and be more active.

As I mentioned in some previous posts, I enjoy  juicing. I notice a big difference in how I feel when I eliminate meat from my diet. Juicing helps me to eliminate meat products from my diet and still provide me with plenty of daily nutrients.

Every once in while I do eat meat, but for the most part juicing and eating fruits and vegetables give me energy and all the nutrients I need to stay bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

Mean Green Juicing Machine

“Our task must be to free ourselves…
by widening our circle of compassion to
embrace all living creatures and the
whole of nature and its beauty.”
Albert Einstein

Mean Green

I’ve been juicing the last few days. I love how great I feel when I juice my fruits and vegetable. You get mega doses of vitamins when you juice, so that’s why I have more energy.

Here’s my daily morning juice drink I make to kick-start my day:

My Mean Green Juicing Machine

1 Cucumber
2 Green Apples
2 Cups Chopped Kale
1 Stalk Celery
1 Lemon

Wash all produce well
Juice and pour over ice

You can add fresh ground pepper, garlic powder, lemon pepper seasoning to taste, and a sprig of fennel greens. But I prefer to juice just the ingredients listed for my mean green juicing machine.

Fresh is Best

After eating that delicious pastrami sandwich the other day, I decided I needed a reboot. Not for my computer, but for my body. When I reboot I cleanse my body by juicing most of my meals each day. It’s not only refreshing but I always feel much healthier.

A few years ago I saw the movie, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead on Netflix. After watching this inspiring movie, I decided to try juicing. As in the movie, I lost weight and felt great. A few of my health problems even disappeared, quite to my doctors amazement.

Today I juiced a portion of a big watermelon that I picked up at the market. I broke up the melon into big chunks, added about a half a cup of water and juiced until it was mixed. Then I poured it over ice and drank the most refreshing sweet drink I’ve had all week.

If you also are trying to eat healthier, just remember when shopping for groceries that fresh is best.
