Addicted To Juice

My mom has been doing it for over a decade, my aunt and uncle swear by it, my sister-in-law loves it and now my in-laws are getting into it.  What you ask?  Juicing!  I am super passionate about it and I just can’t hide it.  My friends think I’m slightly crazy because of my love for natural juice.

It’s one of the best ways to get all of your daily vitamins, plus more.  It makes me feel healthy, makes my skin glow and I know I am feeding my body the nutrients it needs.  It’s also fabulous for the kiddos.  I don’t care if they eat marshmallows all day long, just as long as they drink their momma’s juice (which almost always consists of beets, celery, carrots, apples, pineapples and when we need the extra boost we add kale, spinach, dandelion and/or grapes).  And it tastes AWESOME!  Just make sure you add a couple of sweet tasting fruits in the mix and you’re good to go.  I have to admit, I consider myself a juice snob now.  I don’t even look at the watered down or high-fructose corn syrup laden crap they sell in the store.

This is what our juice usually consists of

If you get your kids involved in the whole juicing process, they are more likely to drink it and ask for seconds.  It makes me giddy that Harry and Stella enjoy it as much as I do. Seriously, there’s nothing healthier you can put in your body.

Get the kids involved!

The Beets give it that beautiful pink color that my daughter loves and they are great for your heart and liver

I use the Jack LaLanne because it got high ratings online and it was rather inexpensive compared to what’s on the market.

If you have ANY questions about juicing, please email me at  I’m more than happy to answer any questions/concerns.

Give it a try…your health is worth it!

  1. Good stuff, the juices you have made for me in the past have kept my mind clear and my body intact- nice job!

  2. Harry’s Beet Stache! That was funny. I was getting nervous that you weren’t going to give LeLane a shot-out, but it’s there at the end. Nice post Ash! I love when you make us a fresh juice, especially lately, as it’s a great way to start your day.

  3. Last night I made popsicles with straight up pineapple and watermelon juice. No added sugar or any other ingredient and they were DA BOMB!!!! My kids ate it up like it was their job. I was beaming knowing that it was pure fruit and loved seeing how they enjoyed it. next time I’m adding a little spinach to it 🙂
