The Green Dream - Juice

This my Friends is the Green Dream.

This was my dinner for the first night of my 5 day Cleanse. I used the recipe from here, while I was browsing through websites. It was really tasty and it included a bunch of healthy goods. I altered the recipe by adding half a lemon and ginger, and I didn't have spinach, but it was good either way. 

SunDay 1 - Juice Day

I started my five day juice cleanse on Sunday, Feb 24, 2013 and ending it on Thursday, Feb 28, 2013. I want to end February with a bang and jump start March with an explosion of health. So far so good. I will be posting yesterday's juices later tonight. Hopefully, I'll be able to catch up with keeping you guys updated. Today is actually Day 3, I am feeling good. 2 more days to go.

Happy Juicing,

The First Bite: Pearl Couscous, Brussels Sprouts & Tilapia

Sunday's Dinner

So I decided to cook dinner Sunday night and lay off the juice/shakes for at least one of my meals. I started buying the frozen packs of Brussels Sprouts from Trader Joes, the Individual frozen packs of tilapia from Target and the pearl couscous from Whole Foods Market. This meal was easy to make and it satisfied my appetite and also my next day lunch meal.

The First Bite: Breakfast Egg Sandwich

Breakfast food is my favorite food in all the earth, alongside Italian dishes. I cook it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Lately though, I've been cooking breakfast for dinner just because that's what I've been craving when I get home. My mom used to cook scrambled egg sandwiches when we were younger, and now as an mid-20 woman, I like to add my two or three cents into the mix. It's pretty simple and easy to make, and might I add healthy too.

Mad Dog & Beans

A couple of co-workers and I decided to head out for lunch so we can take a break away from the office and we ended up at Mad Dog & Beans. I've been here before with other co-workers and I've always enjoyed the food. The atmosphere is pretty nice and exclusive, with dimmed lights and candle's blowing. It's is right downtown in the Financial District in Hanover Sq.

The First Bite: ABC Juice

Apples, Beets, Carrots/Celery

I'm so excited that I am back to juicing!!!! So I purchased a new juicer which I will post about later and this thing is freaking AWESOME! I always enjoyed juicing because it was an alternative to eating or drinking my vegetables. If it was left up to me, beets would never enter my mouth, however pulverizing it thru this fancy juicer of mine, I have absolutely no problem with it.

Writing to Write

In the past couple of days, a lot has transpired. Many words said, some out of anger some out of hurt, but nonetheless they were said. I once heard somewhere that hurt people, hurt people (think about it). As much as it sucks, it's true. If all you know is hurt, then that is all you can give out, but what really sucks, is that, that will be all you receive as well. I come from a place of love and that's all I want to ever give out.

My mind has been a whirl wind of my health, about love, about God (I know you hear me Lord :-/), health, my future, goals, dreams, and everything in between. I want to do so much, yet something is holding me back. Not sure what it is, haven't pin pointed it out as of yet. Then I find myself at in a familiar place of waiting. Waiting on what you ask? Love, God, a dream, an opportunity, something. Then that same nagging question of "what do I do while I wait" comes back and haunt me every time.

Replaying the past couple of weeks in my head, I've learned that I can be a firecracker and like thing in the moment I think of them. I am sure I am not the only out there like that, but sometime I forget that and need a constant reminder. I know I can be a nuance to some people, but I use the excuse of because I love them. Love, oh love that awesome feeling you get in that doesn't always make you smile, but should because you are over thinking, over analyzing, over creating situations in your head when all you need to do is CHILL love. Yea, that love.

So, my hope from this day forward is to just chill, relax, and ENJOY life! Like seriously! Lol

Ooohh and stay tuned for some new things coming to the site! I need to start building this enterprise, in Jesus name!
