What to Eat When You're Not Juicing...

 (Me trying on my shorts from last summer)

I hope you all are having a fabulous week! I have been receiving a lot of questions about what to eat when you're not juicing.  Sooo...this week I'm going to hand this one over to the pro's and give you my all-time-forever-go-to books that I pretty much live by. (after the Bible of course) 

So get ready to dust those reading glasses off... it's time to do some reading! 

  My Favorite Books

Here is a list of my favorite books to read when seeking advice in living a healthier life style!  These books were GAME CHANGERS when it came to losing weight and keeping it off.  I feel like these books gave me all the tools I needed to not only lose weight, but also to make permanent lifestyle changes. I have said this in other blogs but I will say it again, I have tried almost every diet out there. I have read countless books, I have watched videos, movies, etc.  Juicing and eating all natural foods is THE only thing that has worked for me.... Not protein shakes, not supplements, not fat burners, not eliminating all carbohydrates, not cutting out all sugar.... Just simply eating/drinking the fresh fruits and vegetables that God originally intended us to eat. It's so simple it seems silly!

1. Master Your Metabolism by Jillian Michaels.  I can't tell you why or how I ended up with this book but it is AMAZING for several different reasons and it's one of the only "diet" books I have read that 1. made sense 2. didn't feel like a "quick fix" or "fad" diet book 3. Once I started following along with it, it worked and I felt great.  One of the most important things I learned from this book was that chemically filled foods damage our metabolism, endocrine system, and throw our hormones out of whack.  When these 3 things are out of balance, it is impossible to lose weight.   

2.  The Master Your Metabolism Cookbook by Jillian Michaels  This book is basically just a summary of the previous book but the recipes inside are amazing and she gives you a lot of really great ideas on how to pair foods together.  

3.  The Complete Book of Juicing by Michael T. Murray  I love love LOVED this book when I first started juicing! I highly recommend reading this book if you are interested in juicing and learning more about it.  I have shared a lot about juicing in my blog but this book takes it to the next 

4.  The Juicing Bible by Pat Crocker  This book has 100 juicing recipes! Enough said ;)

5.  Salt Sugar Fat by Michael Moss  The food industry is literally poisoning the public and making BANK off it.  This book is a huge eye opener to what the food industry has done to our country and if you take the time to read this book you will most certainly be in shock.

All of these books are available on Amazon as well as several other places.  If you have any trouble finding one of them just let me know!

Have a Blessed Week!
