gimme dat sweet hydrating juice

No better way to start your day than with a glorious glass of super charged energy elixir. Amiright!? I don't think I ate enough yesterday so this morning I was feeling a little weak (but also I have been doing mad squats lately so my legs were quite sore). I needed a pick-me-up and fast!

My regular breakfast of fresh juice took care of this and I was feeling strong and hyped again in no time. Is there anything fresh green juice CAN'T fix? I mean seriously, it reverses cancer. If I never find my soul mate I'll most likely do just fine because I will find a way to marry juice. (After I typed that out all the possible technical problems came to mind but I will push them aside in the name of love.)

After gulping down my juice while listening sweet tunes on the radio, I went to work prepping my dinner for tonight. I don't usually do fancy raw dinners, preferring to keep it simple and low-prep-time with big meals of salad, steamed veggies with whole grains, fruit bowls or smoothies; but today I felt like making something special that I could share with you. The recipe will be up tomorrow. If you want a hint, think: portobello meat balls with "slow-roasted" baby tomatoes and marinated zucchini noodles.

Dang. I just gave it away.
