Okay, now it’s really time to get serious

It’s officially beach weather and some of us haven’t quite gotten down to our bikini weight yet. Look, we all put on a few ell bees during the winter. It happens. But, this happens to be one of those years that we are apparently just going to skip spring and jump straight into boiling hot summer. (Remember when we used to ease into the hot stuff with a few weeks of brisk mornings and mild afternoons? The nineties were awesome.)

Anyhoo, it’s time to make the decision to shed those extra pounds or go shopping for beach appropriate mumus.  I say we lose the weight. And I’ve got a great way to jump start the process.

A great way to stop those sugar and junk-food cravings partially responsible for your extra junk around your trunk is to incorporate more greens into your diet.  Greens are rejeuvanating, cleansing, excavating, energizing and nutritious.  The problem is sometimes they are hard to eat, especially if you are on the go.  So, here’s an easy way to start your day with Dr. Oz’s green drink which is high in fiber, low in calories and rich in vitamins.

See you at the beach.


2 cups spinach

2 cups cucumber

1 head of celery

½ inch or teaspoon ginger root

1 bunch parsley

2 apples

juice of 1 lime

juice of ½ lemon


Combine all ingredients in a blender.  This makes approximately 28-30 ounces, or 3-4 servings.
