Way back in 2009 Nik Tyler (aka, the man who inspired me to be vegan) went to "two transformative weeks at The Rancho De Sol-Ph Miracle Ranch" and came back with incredible enthusiasm and energy.

Here's a delicious, healthy recipe for vegetables that is quick, easy, and involves no cooking or baking that will give you tons of energy and nutrition: green juice! All you need is a juicer (such as the Omega 8004 like I have), a bunch of your favorite green veggies, and about 10 minutes of time. It's a great idea to have it for breakfast because it's a natural energizer and mood booster, so it sets you up for a great, happy day. (Jump to the bottom of the post for the video recipe)
