Kiwi, blackberry and spinach green juice!

Juice1I have to confess I have not been as strict lately with my exercise and eating regimen. A little extra food here and there, saying yes to dessert one too many times, and not exercising for the past few months have left me looking at the mirror and cringing a bit at what I see. Sure there is more of me to love (ha), and yes no one but me probably notices, but I know I’m not in my top form and I need to step up my game before it gets out of control. The first step for me is always drinking green juices. I was experimenting and came up with this simple gem that is now my absolute favorite drink!

The best part is that like all of my recipes, it’s easy to make in minutes!
