I am very cautious about making resolutions, so I dont resolve to make changes in my life in the same way I did when I was younger. However I do have goals. This year we both need to lose some weight, since we are both just a little heavier than is ideal after enjoying all the French butter and pastries in September! Another goal for me is to eat less, which I find difficult because I have a husband who loves to cook, and piles my plate high with his delicious and healthy meals. He plies me with red wine, which I love, so less wine is another goal!! We are starting our the month with a seven day juice program. Not my usual one but something new that includes making the juices into smoothies whizzed up with avocado, spirulina and wheat grass, or banana and yoghurt. So we are following all the recipes and enjoying new juices, treading a gentle path to less weight and an ever healthier life.
My favourite juices are not too sweet, the last one I made was delicious. Fennel, beet greens, celery, cucumber, apples, poured over icecubes, looks and tastes great! Earlier I made a smoothie with plum, blueberries, pineapple juice and a few heaped tablespoons of sheep’s milk yoghurt. A far cry from carrot, beetroot, celery and ginger which was my old standby. Here’s to a juicy you in the New Year!
