Sometimes when I am feeling a bit sluggish, I pull out my huge juicer. Today I had one of those mornings – I was lacking those little green vitamins that juice provides me. Decided to make some healthy, fresh juice. My body thanked me, believe me.
Usually I add carrots; however, wanted to make a greenish hue drink today (maybe it was that BAYLOR PRIDE springing forth) – but also wanted to use up a few of the cucumbers that I had in the fridge.
Man, this combo of fruits and veggies was so refreshing this morning. Wanted to share the recipe – it gave me the jolt of energy that I needed for work and concentration. Give this a try – you will love it. It’s like a natural Red Bull.
I added all these things to the juicer: 1 cucumber, 1 lemon, a chunk of ginger, a handful of spinach, 2 small apples and 2 springs of mint leaves.

If you don’t have a juicer – invest in one! Really, no joke, it’s for your health. God gave us this one body to take care of – choose the foods you put in your body wisely.
