Its true.
I’ve become “that girl”…
You know, the “holistic, all natural, eat as organic and gluten free as you possibly can and tell the whole wide world WHY” kind of girl.  That is a HUGE difference from my diet soda addiction, sugar obsession, calorie glutton, processed snack way of life

Yup.  That’s me.
Reaching for a NEW kind of normal.

In my defense, I have been SICK for over a year now and fed up.  Fed up with doctors not knowing how to diagnose me.  Tired of the fatigue, mental brain fog, upset stomach and overall malaise.  Tired of using pain pills or OTC drugs to numb the ache but never solve the problem. Tired of cancelling plans, calling in sick, and unable to function normally day to day.  So I am getting back to basics.  Down to the root of health…


I have become ADDICTED to the way juicing has impacted my energy levels, headaches and overall strength and many of YOU asked me what I am doing.

How did I go down an entire dress size, sleep better and lessen my headaches in a matter of just a week?

Well the answer lies in living what God intended for us, naturally.  Its about eating what our bodies were created to consume, work on our food addictions and emotional triggers, and ask God daily for strength and help to change for the better.  The power of testimony is real, and I am so excited to share with you my top 5 energy boosting, detoxifying juices that have changed my day to day living.  Health is about making small changes over time and I want to help and inspire you in any way that I can.

nutribulletI AM HOOKED!
I got so sick and tired of feeling SO sick and tired, I decided to do what I could on my own to better my overall health.  I am only a few weeks in, but have seen such great results I cant go back.  When I am passionate about something, I tend to share about it with ENERGY, so I hope my excitement spreads to YOU! 

 This is my new best friend… The NutriBullet.
Not a traditional juicer and ABSOLUTELY NOT a blender.

This handy dandy little machine is what’s called a JUICE EXTRACTOR.

But Rachael, what the heck is a juice extractor?  Looks like a blender to me…
I thought the same thing friends, but here is the difference.  Unlike your common juicers (which remove the nutrient rich pulp) and basic blenders (which just mush ingredients around) a juice EXTRACTOR actually breaks down your ingredients at their cellular level, creating a juice that is not only nutritious, but it is easily absorbed into your body.

OMG and did I mention its EASY!!?

You just fill the cup with half fresh, raw greens (arugula, Swiss chard, kale, spinach etc) add some nutrient dense berries (or other fruits) toss in some organic, raw almonds, walnuts or pecans, add a couple super-food elements like chia seeds, flax or maca powder, finish it off with a cup or so of filtered spring water, twist on the extractor blade, and BAM, that’s it!.  You’ve got yourself a pulverized and incredibly delicious juice (they call it a “nutriblast“… so cute!)

The special blade actually breaks down the tough items, like nuts, root veggies and leaves,  and makes it easy to digest for your body.

So easy.  So yum!

The reason I started juicing 2x a day was because I consistently felt like garbage.  By day 2 and 3 I was feeling better from my body detoxing and by the end of the 1st week I felt better than I had in years!  I would eat a light meal in the evenings of fresh veggies and 4-6oz of a clean protein, and it helped SO much!

So where do YOU start!?  Here are my BEST energy boosting juices!
