This is what I started with:
The end result:
That's right, a nice tall glass of Mean Green.
I don't think I could have been more proud of myself. The first sip...not bad.
And then it hit my tongue.
Sorry juice lovers, but all the lies you're telling about Mean Green not tasting like lawn clippings are criminal.
Seriously, it tastes like the stuff you drink before a colonoscopy.
Not my fondest memories.
And now I'm not so sure about all this clean-eating, fruits and vegetables, natural health remedies stuff. I had to think about it over a delicious cookie dough concrete mixer at Culvers.
The jury's still out.
What I do know is that I'm unsatisfied with my current weight and that eating unhealthy food doesn't seem to alleviate my disatitisfaction. Though I have been losing weight lately, I want something more than just a smaller dress size. I want better health.
I think that means scaling back instead of overhauling. Let's face it, throwing out everything in my cupboards is not really an option. And never having another Starbucks Frappucino, uh...yeah right!
So, my new goal is to cut out fried foods, soda pop, and *gasp* sweet tea....
......Okay maybe not entirely.
See how hard this is.
