My juicer and vitamix are my new BFs. Four months ago, I eliminated gluten from my diet because of a health issue. These days I often juice in the morning, sometimes afternoon, and treat myself to a smoothie at some point during the day.
Below are a few of my favorite yummy drinks. I bust these out to help me get through a day that often begins before sunrise. This stuff keeps me happy and supports me in being my best self, wife, mom to my 3 kids and teacher to my students.
Hope you enjoy…
