The best way to start any day is by Juicing it up! This scrumptious juice is loaded with vitamins A, C and K and will make your morning coffee feel like a wimp! Aside from the insane energy surging through your body, your skin will look younger and more radiant. I’ll have another glass, please!

‘Feed Your Skin’ Superfood Juice 

the ingredients:
4 red kale leaves
4 dinosaur kale leaves
2 celery stalks
1 carrot
2 cucumbers
1 orange
1 lemon
1 apple
1 cup raspberries
1 cup strawberries
1 cup red grapes

the method:
Juice each fruit and vegetable separately and pour the juice into one large mason jar. Give the jar a little shimmy… a little shake. Pop in a straw. Sip. Smile. Repeat.

the nutritional facts:

vitamin A: The carrots in this beverage provide ample amounts of vitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. Consider this precursor to vitamin A your passport to youth; it aids in protecting cells, prevents premature aging and gives your skin a rosy glow.

vitamin C: Often associated with immune system and warding off the common cold – but did you know that your skin has its own unique immune system that needs a little TLC every now and then? It’s true. So while vitamin C helps protect the integrity of the skin, it also triggers collagen production. Collagen is responsible for keeping skin looking plump, elastic , wrinkle-free and wards off signs of aging.

vitamin K: This antioxidant does wonders for the skin. With a healthy intake of vitamin K, you can expect a clearer complexion, improved skin elasticity and a super-fast wound healing response.

Cucumber Lemon Water

cucumber lemon waterLet’s be honest. Mondays can be frantic and downright terrible. I’m only being negative because I wish I was outside in this beautiful Arizona weather right instead of being stuck in a cubicle. I don’t think anything can compete with Arizona fall weather. Anywho, even though it’s cooling down out there, it’s still important to stay hydrated!

I have been sipping on water infused with cucumbers and lemon slices – super refreshing! 🙂

All you need is a mason jar, some cucumbers, lemons and well… water. Super simple!
