Como Water Juice and Smoothie Round Up

Posted by


We’re one week into January–one week into our resolutions to be healthier. One week into craving a big fat cupcake or bucket of ice cream. One week into resisting in the name of shedding holiday pounds or simply being committed to eating more fruits and vegetables. Well, folks, if you’re looking for creative ways to consume more fruits and veggies, there’s nothing better than than juicing or a smoothie. This week, I’ve decided to drink what I am calling “Chakra Juices.” Each day, I’m going to drink a juice corresponding to a chakra starting with red and going all the way to indigo. I started today with a strawberry, apple, and beet juice (one cup strawberries, 4 apples, 1 beet, squeeze from lemon–voila!). Stay tuned to facebook and twitter to see my juices for the rest of the week. In the meantime, check out this round up of past Como Water juices and smoothies!
