Need more fruits and vegetables in your diet?

We eat a decent amount of fruits and vegetables in our house but there is always room for improvement. Recently we purchased a juicer and have found a new love for fruits and vegetables.  We have put some crazy concoctions together and they still turn out great.  It is such an easy way to get in those fruits or veggies that you don't really like, but know that you should have.  If you blend all the flavors well, it will taste fresh and sweet.  My latest blend was broccoli, cauliflower, apples, pineapple, carrots, and spinach.  Sometimes the color of the juice isn't the most appetizing, but knowing all the nurtients I am getting and the taste of it outweighs the color.  It is also a great way to get the kids the nutrients they need as well. 

Another great item is the Magic Bullet.  My sister ordered one and then we bought the smaller "Bullet to Go" from her (which is basically the same thing.)  We

use this machine mostly for fruit smoothies.  It is small, portable and very easy to use.  It also has very little pieces compared to the juicer.  That is probably the juicers only downfall.

If you are looking to eat a little healthier this year, I encourage you to try both!  You will be surprised how well fruits and vegetables can taste!
