Morning Green Fix – Mean Green Juice :
Has it happened to you yet, Have you noticed? These days when you get up, you feel the nip in the air ! Yes, we are heading towards the season of fall or I can say the “Eating Season” and soon What we call “Cheat-Day” – Those once in a week day is going to turn into cheat weeks 🙂
You may ask “Why“? Cause “Happy Day’s are Coming Ahead” with candies/pies/meats / fried dishes / baked goodies n what-not, with all the festivities & excitement, approaching and our diet plan will go for a toss.
And if you celebrate both east n west festivals just like me, you have double trouble cause winter is the most festive-packed months for us from Navratri, Dussehra, Diwali, Halloween, Thanksgiving…so on & also endless birthdays-anniversaries ! YaaaaaaY – I’m already envisioning delectable goodies just writing this post….yummmm

So before all this really takes place and I completely lose myself, I’m trying to eat as much healthy, exercise 🙂 and follow a control diet as I much as I can and the major chunk of my controlled diet plan is “smoothies/juices”. They are full of fruits-veggies, giving our body the much-needed energy, detox and keeping us full at the same time.
But for many who are blessed with no such stress/threats, you can definitely drink all these smoothies/juices for a healthier and balanced life style.
Here’s My September Morning Green Fix / Jumpstart Juice as this is the first thing I have in the morning. It’s my version of the mean green juice which is easy to make, tastes great and can be frozen for about a week. To Healthy Energetic US !!!
