{Yesterday's Prior Planning = Today's Power Breakfast}

It's official -- I'm in love with juicing.

Kale is easily my favorite ingredient. It doesn't produce a lot of juice, but it's so densely
packed with goodness. So, I feel like it's a five star juicing item. :)

With or without the kale, there's so much pure, unadulterated healthfulness in every sip!

It's like giving my body and brain a special gift in a glass.





For this one, I used kale, celery and cantaloupe.

I made another one recently with spinach, apple, peach, and cucumber. Not too shabby.
I'm telling you, it's hard to mess up this juicing (or smoothie) thing.

It's a superb way to make sure produce from my weekly food co-op basket doesn't go
to waste, and it gives me several servings of fruits and vegetables in one meal. I love that.

No juicer? You can essentially accomplish the same thing with a blender. My friend, Sara,
has gone that route. You can read about her experience with them here.

That's it for today. I hope you all have a great weekend. Cheers!

So funny you post this because today I saw a similar (in color only) recipe, but for soup, that made me think of you. It's the reason I sent you the link to F&W. Here it is:

Let me know if you try it.
