Tomato basil garlic juice

I’ve been replacing a meal or two everyday with a juice. I eat like 5 meals a day so that still leaves room for some normal size meals and proper caloric intake.

This ones about to be a tomato basil garlic juice!

Juicing is a great way for your body to absorb the fullest amount of vitamins from your fruits and veggies. It’s tasty too!

Quinoa with basil tomatoes garlic

20130130-144500.jpg

I had leftover quinoa (a superfood) so I tossed it with olive oil, lemon, avocados, tomatoes, garlic, basil and salt- all which are healthy for you!

Did someone say protein, vitamin c, lycopene, iodine, anti inflammatory properties, healthy oils and yumminess? (those are the healthy properties I could think of off the top of my head. I’m sure there are tons more!)

^Check this article out for 20 uses for leftover fruit and veggie peels.

Some favorites:
15. Keep brown sugar soft: If you regularly fall victim to the brick in the pantry known as hardened brown sugar, try adding some lemon peel (with traces of pulp and pith removed) to keep it moist and pliable.

3. Clean your tea kettle: For mineral deposit build up in tea kettles, fill the vessel with water and a handful of lemon peels and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and let sit for an hour, drain and rinse well.
