Our January started off with constant colds and coughs and the Arctic blast with many snow days stuck inside. So my hope of kicking off the new year with a healthy and active lifestyle has been on hold. The result is that I feel like “a hanged cat” (a Danish expression) being dragged around from the kids wake up at 6:30 am till I crash on the couch as soon as they go to bed. Being a couch potato was not exactly my new years resolution and I am determined to find a better way to get through the cold Winter months.
All the hygge foods I have been advocating on this blog, like cakes and hot chocolate, bring me a sweet momentary happiness. This is why I have decided to give me, my family and this blog a healthy vitamin shot with foods that provide the energy we need to be happy and active all day long. I will also discover healthy hygge foods that won’t send us on a sugar crash shortly after indulgence.
My first step towards a healthier, more active and happier life is juicing.
This colorful beet juice will wake up your senses from Winter hibernation and give you a healthy injection of energy and vitamins.
Beet Juice Recipe
2 – 3 beets
2 apples (granny smith / gala)

Run all ingredients through the juicer and serve up. It can be stored for about 3 days in the fridge in a tightly closed mason jar. Remember to stir before serving.
