Today, my heart is heavy. This past weekend, I lost one of my best friends, and heaven gained another angel. This angel being extremely goofy, sarcastic, and creative!
This has been a reminder of just how precious our days are. As my world has turned completely upside down, I am left with so many amazing and funny memories that we spent together. In the spirit of Valentine’s day this week, make the best of every moment with your parents, siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends and tell them how much you love and appreciate them. Show them your love not only on Valentine’s day but everyday, for life is entirely too short.
This week has just begun, and it has already been so challenging. I’ve noticed my eating behaviors changing, but I am trying to stay strong because I know that is what he would want. Instead of isolating myself and crawling into a hole, I want to celebrate his life and continue doing what makes me happy: creating new recipes and blogging!
With that said, it’s time for some Monday motivation.
Motivation Monday: “Your stomach shouldn’t be a waste basket.”
This Valentine’s Day, love yourself and your body.
Love everything you have been given, and love your life.
Show your body some love with a fresh Love Spell juice!
This juice is sweet, highly nutritious, and absolutely gorgeous.
Make a juice for you and your sweetie this Valentine’s day, cheers!
1 fuji apple
1/2 medium beet
1/2 inch piece of ginger
Rinsee the carrots, apple, and beets. Cut beet in half. Cut the lemon in half and remove rind.Cut ginger into a half inch section and chop off the skin. Juice, and enjoy! I also adorned my juice with heart shaped slices of beets!
Note: I like to refrigerate all of my ingredients before juicing so my juice is nice and cold!
ANother Note: I recommend using organic fruits and veggies for juicing. No one wants wax from a shiny apple in their juice, EW!
