Today I woke up a little late, it’s pouring here in San Antonio and when it’s pouring outside there’s no use in getting me out of bed. However I eventually woke up to the sound of repeated scratching on my bedroom door because my dogs are scared of the storm.
I started off my morning with a delicious juice that’s inspired by the juice I had at the farmer’s market here in San Antonio at the Pearl. This juice is perfectly refreshing. I adore watermelon and who doesn’t love lemonade? I’m also reading The Skimm this morning, which you can learn more about here or sign up to receive your Skimm subscription here.
“Watermelon Lemonade Juice” Recipe:
- 2 lemons (peeled and cut to fit in your juicer)
- Watermelon — I already had pre-cut watermelon in a container in my refrigerator. I would say that I used about 2 1/2 cups of watermelon (seeds and all, they won’t end up in your juice I promise). But I would put the two lemons in first and add watermelon until your glass is full!
“Cosmic Orange Juice” Recipe:
- Half of a cucumber
- 1 peach
- 2 sticks of celery
- 1 Gala apple
- 2 small tomatoes (or 1 whole tomato)
With my lunch, I had a few turkey and provolone roll-ups with mustard.
For my snack I had Chobani Strawberry & Banana Greek Yogurt (the single cups).
For dinner I had a grilled chicken salad with sliced carrots, sliced tomatoes, and light ranch dressing.
