MMB – Grab N Go Green Juice
I hope you had a fabulous weekend and celebrated Father’s Day in one way or another. I was sitting in church on Sunday and was listening to our worship pastor talk about Father’s Day and how good it is for us to show our appreciation for all of those fathers out there and to thank them for all they do for their families.
However, I was also happy to hear him address those people in the audience, who may be hurting on Father’s Day, because Father’s Day is not always joy filled for all people. Maybe you are one of those people, who had a less than exemplary father, or are mourning the loss of your father because he passed when you were young? Or maybe you are estranged from your father and are longing for a closer relationship?
The good news is that there is a God, who is our heavenly father, and can heal us of our wounds, hurts, and disappointments. If this is you today, I encourage you to give God a chance and lay your burdens down at the foot of the cross. You might be amazed at how liberating it is to let go of pain that is hung around your neck like a ball and chain. You know I’m a work out girl and love good nutrition, but you can exercise yourself into the ground or eat a strict vegan diet and it won’t take away the pain of broken relationships or the pain of a loved one who has passed. Ask the Lord for help and invite Him into the inner depths of your heart to be transformed from the inside out and to truly find freedom! Give God a try. What do you have to lose?

Thought for the week: Grab N Go Green Juice
Juicing can be a pain in the butt. Don’t get me wrong, it’s absolutely fantastic and just about the best thing you can put into your body. However, it takes a ton of produce, can be cost prohibitive, takes time, and is very messy. If you find that you are skipping out on drinking green juice because of any of those reasons, don’t despair! There are other ways to drink green juice that are more convenient and will still allow you to gain the benefits of juicing!
I was at Costco over the weekend and was very pleased to see that Suja is offering their Uber Greens juice for $12.99 per case with six bottles! That’s just a little over $2 per bottle! I’ve been buying green juice from Trader Joe’s and spending $4 per bottle, which can add up with a family of four!
I like the fact that this recipe of green juice only has 5 grams of sugar and is 40 calories for the 10.5 fl. oz. bottle. Don’t get me wrong, I like the Trader Joe’s blend and $4 is actually fairly decent for the cost of a bottle of green juice. When I was in New York, grab n go green juices were about $8.50 per bottle! However, it’s a pretty good deal to find a 6 pack for $12.99 with a great juice blend!
So, if you can make your way out to Costco, look for the cases of Suja in the refrigerated section along with the Kombucha. It would be a great idea to pick up both! Be kind to your gut because it’s the only one you have!
See you in class soon!
