There comes a time in a twenty-something vegan’s life that she realizes it’s time to make juice out of blueberries for the first time. I don’t know why I’ve waited this long. While I’ve been drinking yummy juice for years, it wasn’t until a recent trip to New York City’s Blossom on Carmine with Erin Red and Ivory that I tried Bilberry juice–another delicious choice–which reminded me that little adorbs berries can indeed be crushed and strained and turned into liquid antioxidant heaven.

I mixed in some kiwi, a big head of kale, a bit of apple and some ginger and a squeeze of lemon for good measure. This Blueberry Ginger Kiwi Kale Juice will rock your day, I promise.
Blueberry Ginger Kiwi Kale Juice
1 lb blueberries
1/2 inch ginger
1 bunch curly kale
1/2 golden delicious apple (optional)
Juice all ingredients using a juicer or my juice in a blender method. Enjoy!

Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).
Adulting is hard stuff. Sure, there are the big things like taking care of kids or parents, unexpected car and home repairs, dealing with awful work situations, but sometimes the littlest things feel the most difficult. These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
