detox, anyone?

we all know that thanksgiving and christmas can do us in physically, right? and despite my best efforts over the holiday season, i still totally blew the maker's diet.

that's right - it is possible to run a half marathon and not lose any weight if you're eating like a hippo. surprise?

but now i am back in austin - 3 days post half marathon and ready to eat healthy again. DETOX TIME!!!!!!!!!

VEGGIE DETOX (special equipment: juice extractor!)

PREP 15 min.

2 firm Bosc pears
1 3/4 inch piece of ginger
5 medium carrots scrubbed
2 celery stalks
1 baby beet, trimmed, scrubbed
1/2 cup fresh parsley, packed (with stems!)

*this recipe taken from the Paris Juice Bar - Paris, FR
* if you don't have a juicer, the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Pro is one of the highest rated juicers in consumer reports and only costs about 80 bucks!

I recommend a squeeze of lemon!!

HAPPY JUICING :D * guaranteed to make husbands happy, too!
