Juice - the best way to start and end the day

Hudson LOVES making juice!  Recently, his dietary habits have been changing from a fruit & veggie loving vegetarian to more bread and meat please (see below).  But he still loves his juice which makes me to  happy to know he is a least getting some vitamins.

 
He gets pretty bossy and knows exactly what he wants.
And what to do with it.



Thanks for the awesome vintage Wyoming cups Linnea, Brian, & Noah!
More please!
 The best part is definitely his juice mustache, apparently fresh juice stains so it sticks around most of the day.  Making juice with Huds is one of my favorite ways to start the day, but ending a long day of school with a glass of juice is seriously the way to go!  If you need an afternoon pick me up I totally recommend it.  I usually crave something sweet after school and am in need a quick boost of energy because Hudson is ready to go.  I wish I had a mom who was waiting for me to come home with freshly baked cookies but alas I don't.  It's probably healthier this way.  I started grabbing my left over juice because it was quick and easy to consume. I can't believe how satisfying and energizing it is. Try it

 Homemade Fresca - seriously the best after school snack.  
1 lemon
4 grapefruit
2 apples
add cucumber, romain lettuce, kale or spinach for more vitamins - but it won't be as pretty.

Juice. Chill. Add sparkling water. ENJOY! We had the almost the best Mother's Day yesterday, just missing our far-away Mothers and Grandmothers :(, pics and details to come!

He is so cute!! I tried to make this, but didn't use enough fruit so mine turned out strange and a little sour. Thanks for the recipe. Would also make a great belini w/ a little champagne :)
