Juicing Recipes | Gala Apple Pick Me Up

Juicing-Recipe-Gala-Apple-Pick-Me-Up 570x555

If you have never created your own freshly squeezed juice, you are missing out. I’ve been juicing for going on three years now and love coming up with different juicing recipes.

I usually grab whatever I have on hand and today that happened to be Gala apples, celery and tomato.

The reason I call this a pick-me-up is because of the apples. Apples naturally boost your immune system, aid in digestion and also have a similar wake up effect as coffee.

Apples contain fructose, a simple sugar that is delivered slowly throughout your system. While it won’t give you the instant jolt like coffee is is healthier for you, non addictive and won’t give you the jitters like coffee.

For this recipe I use two stalks of celery, one Gala apple and one Roma tomato.

(I use the Hamilton Beach Health Smart Juice Extractor)

I run everything through the juicer and within five minutes have a delicious cup of juice.

Best Lemon Apple Juice Recipe Ever!

Best Lemon Apple Juice Ever

If you have been following me on instagram you’ve seen me share pictures of my juicing and clean eating recipes. In an effort to live healthy and take care of my body, it only makes sense to cut back on fried and sugary foods.

Eating unhealthier foods in conjunction with working out haven’t been bringing me the same results. As I age and my metabolism slows the calories don’t break down as fast, so I decided to go back to how I ate when I did P90X.

One of the things I do in order to increase my fruit and vegetable intake is juice. It allows me to eat 4x’s as much vegetables per days as I would if I were to eat them whole.

I use the Breville juicer but any one you already own will work.

To make this Lemon Apple Juice Recipe use:

  • 4 Apples (your favorite variety)

  • 1 Lemon (Peel on)

  • 2 Celery Stalks

Place them in you juicer and enjoy.

Serves 1-2 (Makes approximately 16 ounces)

Juicing: Pre-Workout Zucchini Citrus Zinger

Juicing

I drink this Zucchini Citrus Zinger before working out. It packs a lot of tartness so you may want to peel your citrus fruit before adding them to your juicer.

Juicing: Energy Boost Juice

Juicing

I’ve started juicing again after falling away last year. I started juicing back in 2010 but got tired of the same old flavors.

One thing that kept me from trying different flavor varieties was the cost of buying so many fresh fruits and vegetables. The other was the lack of knowledge on how many great  recipes were available.

I learned that you can literally throw together just about any combination. Here’s one I cam up with my first week back juicing.

*note: I use this juicer if you’re interested.

Week 3 of P90X ~ Where Did My Love Handles Go?

I just want to celebrate myself here on my blog because I am officially on week 3 of the P90X Extreme Home Fitness Workout Program. My love handles are gone and my stomach is noticeably flatter this morning even after eating the big P90X breakfast.

Are you doing P90X or a similar workout? Are you seeing results?
