IMG_20140119_165356Part of a healthy diet is having your fair share of fruits and vegetables. They give you vitamins and nutrients that can ward off illness, provide all-natural energy, and keep you brain in top notch condition throughout the day. But some days it can be difficult to make sure that everything you eat throughout the day includes these super foods. Juicing is a great way to stay on top of your fruit and veggie requirements, without needing alot of time to prep or cook – or eat for that matter! Juicing has also become big in the dieting world to lose weight and detox your body. This particular recipe is great because it contains kale – a super food related to broccoli known for having high levels of beta carotene, vitamin k, vitamin c and calcium. And while it may not look like the most delicious drink to some, it has a surprisingly sweet and delicious flavor that may have you reaching for your greens more often. Simply throw all the items through you juicer, add ice and enjoy your veggies like never before!

5 large kale leaves

1 large cucumber

1 peeled lemon

1 apple

2 large ribs of celery

I decided on these delectable cheesecake bars. I found the recipe on Food Network‘s website, and I picked it apart to use only the parts that I needed (divided in half) – the crust and the amazing streusel topping.
