MAY BE DELETING THIS BLOG AND CREATING ANOTHER.

I would like my blog to be open to everyone in my life, and this blog currently includes a lot of struggles (particularly eating disorder related) that I’m simply not comfortable sharing with everyone. I would love to blog separately, but frankly that’s just too much time and upkeep. That’s why I haven’t really blogged in forever, and for that I’m soooo sorry. I miss Tumblr so much!!!  I wish I could’ve just switched my secondary blog to my primary, but unfortunately Tumblr doesn’t let me do that:( To delete this blog means to delete everything, and that makes me so sad.

I will probably create a new primary blog, then use that mainly.

IT WILL STILL BE FITNESS. PLEASE FOLLOW IT IF I CHOOSE TO DO THIS. I’ll actually keep it updated, and it will link to my instagram, Pinterest, Twitter, and everything else=]

The Secret to Juicing and Smoothies (Eliminating Sugar)

     So I’ve been asked in personal life “How do you not put honey or agave into your smoothies? I just cant stand the drinks without honey/agave, they aren’t sweet enough, how do you do it?”

  The secret….USING REALLY RIPE FRUIT. So often I see people (my family & friends) using pure yellow bananas. These are NOT going to be sweet. You want rather speckled (yellow/brown) bananas for proper sweetness. Also, generally most fruits should be mushy. I personally cannot stand very mushy fruits (to eat), but that is how they go best into juices/smoothies. That is when they have the most sweetness, that way you don’t need honey.

I actually used to use agave ALL the time in my drinks until I once used “over-ripe” fruit….then my drink was “too” sweet. I still had some of that overly ripe fruit the next day, without the agave, and enjoyed the most deliciously sweet drink. That’s when I realized that the natural sugar from the fruit really did taste best.

So that’s the real secret: use fruit you many have previously considered “over-ripe”

Good Luck! =]
