Go-Go Green Juice

Let me start by saying, I LOVE my Go-Go Green Juice!

I do not love it more than pizza, hot wings, or vodka, but when those things are off the table, I LOVE my green juice.

Every year, my household chooses a fast to participate in for different reasons. And…those reasons vary…typically by age group. If you’re in the “under 21” bracket, your reasons run along the lines of, “Because my parents said so.” Honestly, taking a break from chocolate chip cookies for a period of time…killed nobody.

If you’re in the “over 21” bracket, your reasons could be spiritual, dietary, to break gluttonous habits….

I haven’t yet decided if I will talk about those things in more detail later…..but the point is…my current intake is primarily my green juice.

Doesn’t this picture just make you want to try a glass?

People do not believe that something so green..could be so good! And…that one time..when I used too much celery and not enough other-stuff…I admit….it was damn near horrific. BUT!!!…..It was just that one time. Maybe two.

Try it. Your body needs it….to boost energy…to boost your immune system…and to promote the umm…the…well…the removal of shit your body doesn’t need. Pun intended.

Here’s the recipe for a gallon.

4 – cucumbers

2 – bags of celery

1 – bag of honey crisp apples

4 – bunches of kale (yummm)

2 – lemons

1 – thumb ginger root

1 – bag of oranges

I core my apples, peel my oranges, peel my ginger root and run it all through the juicer. On the lemons, I cut them in half and squeeze them into my juice at the end.

This picture is just pure wholesomeness. For the sake of clarity….these are granny smith apples here. They work…but honey crisp are so much better!

Enjoy!

Charlie Sheen Has HIV…..and..

This is a “who-cares-so-I’m-going-to-not-care-more-by-blogging-about-it-anyway-thing…”

I had something really juicy to share with you all today…but I’m feeling judgmental and concerned..so I’m going to talk about STD’s instead.

I haven’t read all the headlines. I don’t have to. I already know what they say. He’s infected but being taken care of and all the women he didn’t tell about his status are in an uproar…screaming and crying because he…threatened..or destroyed their lives.

I want to say I’m sorry for all of the people involved. I don’t know them like that though.

Did that sound cold?

In case it did, let me qualify my sentiment by saying…there is just something about recent world events…that makes this announcement…..

Well.

Stupid.

And I will qualify my sentiment further by saying….in the next week or so..I’m going to talk about some pretty irrelevant and unimportant things myself. I’m okay with my blogging contradictions.

STD’s are serious. Protect yourselves. Choose your behaviors wisely. There is a reason the Bible says what it says; like it or not. God wants His best for us. And HIV ain’t IT. It is that simple. Why make life more complicated and complex with unprotected sex outside of marriage? Trust me, every adult that made it to marriage…after a wild hair or two…thanks their lucky stars every single day for their negative status.

Meanwhile, the people in Paris are burying family members and living in unimaginable fear..due to behaviors they did not choose. Many people are facing their first holidays without loved ones..due to behaviors they did not choose. And nearly two weeks ago……a woman I graduated from high school with….had to tell her young kids and her family…that she would not live to celebrate their next birthdays; would not live to spend their next summer vacation with them; would not live to see them all married and her future grandbabies…..due to behaviors she herself..did not choose.

But Charlie Sheen…has an STD.
