Looks like Going Crunchy may be a solo project. The Mexican is not feeling it at all! I think hubby may be a tad "celoso" of my obsession with Dan the Man aka The Life Regenerator. I can't help it! Dan the Man is crazy, honest, inspirational and entertaining as hell. I love watching his videos because he talks about overall health..... physical, mental, emotional, spiritual. He talks about his journey on becoming a better person and lets us viewers into his life! Kind of like an ongoing novela. You know I love my novelas!
Ok, so I want to share Lou Corona's Lemon Ginger Blast recipe that I learned about through watching Dan the Man.
*side note* Dan likes to talk. So, if you don't want to watch the video, the recipe is below.
*additional side note* After watching this video you may think...."This chic is CaRaaaaaZY!" and maybe I am......no shame in my game.
Lemon Ginger Blast (with my tweaks in parenthesis)
(always scrub and wash fruit and veggies 1st!)
1- 3inch piece of Ginger
1 Lemon peeled (I used one and half. I love lemon!)
1 bunch of Cilantro
1 bunch of Parsely
1 bunch of Arugula (I substituted Spinach due to no Arugula in home)
3 Habaneros (ay, ya, ya! I used 1/2 of a jalepeño)
*note* this makes a lot of juice! I halved this recipe but kept the 2 apples and used a little more lemon and it was enough for hubby and I.
According to Dan and Lou, a Lemon Ginger Blast juice has all of these health benefits:
neutralizes free radicals
This juice was amazing! I immediately felt energized! Hubby didn't drink his glass. Can we say stubborn? Our son drank about 1/4 of a glass and said it was good! Yay! At least someone is willing to try my juice.
I rarely make New Years resolutions. Mainly due to I never follow through. I am however setting a goal to juice at least once a day. Now that the holidays are behind us and all of the tempting sweets and family get togethers are over, I feel it is a goal I am able to keep.
Luckily, a fellow blogger amiga is juicing as well! BiCultural Mom has embarked on a 365 day life challenge. You can read about her journey here. I was so happy to read she will be juicing. Now I have more motivation to keep up with my juicing. If my mexicanito will not join me, I'm happy to have a friend who I can share recipes and stay motivated with.
If anyone out in blogger land has a recipe they would like to share, I'd love to hear about it!
