This starts today. I’m doing it even though my love for green juice is not yet realized. You should get on this. Seriously. Your body and mind will love you for it. Trust me.
I watched The Impossible today. It is a true story of a family during the tsunami in 2004. The mama in me didn’t breath for probably at least 30 minutes of the movie. Oh my. I can’t comprehend how the people who experienced this must feel. No words.
For supper we are having stuffed peppers without the processed/high sodium fake meat I usually use. I found this recipe and I’m giving it a whirl.
Update: For some reason, the recipe link won’t work. It’s from the Reboot With Joe Website and it’s called Fiesta Stuffed Peppers. Here’s the recipe if you want to try it:
