Good Eating for 2015

If you're like me part of your 2015 goals is to eat healthier and make a few subtle changes to your routine to get more in tune with your best body ever. Notice I didn't say diet at all because I'm not dieting because I've never been good at it. It's psychological... when you tell yourself that you're dieting, then subconsciously you crave what you shouldn't have.  To really pack in the nutrients I've actually integrated juicing into my lifestyle starting in 2014. I've noticed a difference in my skin and my overall health. Being that it's helped me and I've noticed changes, I've decided to pass it along and share some of my favorite recipes.

I've never been a fan of beets but I actually found a smoothie recipe that includes  beets as one of the ingredients and its actually very tasty. Who would have thought??? Damn sure fooled me but it's great. I haven't eaten beets since I was forced to as a child.  Give it a try and let me know what you think. Enjoy!
