I just ordered a juicer, here’s why:

While I force myself to eat in the summer months, all I really want to do is drink smoothies. I figure perhaps I can get some more nutrients in if I just liquefy my food. It seems like the easy out to eating when it’s 100 degrees outside and food sounds disgusting.

Of course, as soon as I think of a juicing, I think of my little stint on the Organic Avenue juice cleanse—let’s just say it wasn’t pretty.

I’m hoping this constant nausea ceases soon, because I really like food and I wish I wanted to eat it, but until then I’m looking forward to my new juicer’s arrival.

Does anyone else lose their appetite when it’s hot out?

Breakfast


Smoothies seem to be all I really want to eat these days. Cold and refreshing, that’s where it’s at.
This one was made with low fat kefir, frozen berries and vanilla protein powder

Lunch

Weird lunch, absolutely. I still haven’t gone grocery shopping, so I’m getting more creative in my meal preparation. At least this one had vegetables and protein.

Dinner


Grilled chicken tacos: Corn tortillas with grilled chicken; and a slaw made from cabbage, avocado, carrot and lime juice
