10 Day Juice Challenge -Begins December 1st – 10th.

Posted on November 24, 2013 by Aimee in Food, Recipes

My bestie, Carlene Benelli and her awesome yoga studio, Seacoast Power Yoga in New Hampshire posted about a 10-Day Juice Challenge. Of course I am in. Got me thinking we should do it down in my neck of the woods so I am throwing it out there to all of you to join us.

Some of you had questions of recipes. To get you started here is a list from recent talks I have given. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns. This should be fun, daring, and adventurous. If it seems intimidating that is ok, but don’t let it scare you away. Just give it a try one green juice day at a time. You may even find out that you like it!!!

If you sign up on Seacoast Power Yoga’s Facebook Page under events, you will also be able to get support throughout the 10 days.
