Spring has sprung! Can you believe it’s the first day of spring? My goals for this weekend are to replant in my garden and get my Easter decorations up, and I’m going to savor every minute of it. We also have a 17 miler planned. I’ll let you know how that goes on Monday.
To celebrate this week of green, I’m sharing a green juice that I developed and photographed for Fitness Magazine. Scroll to the first page of the article and you can see my quotes as well. While it’s not technically a juice because I used a blender to make it, it has juice consistency and a great dose of protein!
