Read This!

I hope you’re all having a great (short) week!  On this edition of Read This! we have a grab bag of interesting articles.  Let me know which one(s) you like!

  • Kris Carr’s morning green juice recipe!  Can’t wait to try this.  She’s truly inspirational.

  • *shameless plug* Check out my Pinterest where you can find great diet and exercise tips plus some yummy vegan recipes!
  • Lastly, here is a wonderfully inspirational quote that I came across this week from German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche:
