For the love of JUICING

We have been going through fruits and vegetables in my house like it’s nobodies business! 

About two month ago I decided to start blending all those green vegetables that are so hard to eat all on their own.  I didn’t want to slather them when fatty dressings or cook them.  The only other option for me was to blend them and take it like a big girl.  Yup.  A smoothie made out of kale, celery, cucumbers, cilantro, lemon, apple, pear, and pretty much anything green.  I picked up the idea from Kimberly Snyder.  Haven’t heard of her?  Google it.  After reading (part of) her book I thought I would try and make the change to slowly cut meat out of my diet.  I can’t tell you I have been successful, since I gave it up a couple of weeks after … what can I say, I love meat.  Other circumstances lead me to fall off the wagon too.

I realized that while she was right on many points, I just wasn’t ready to make such a drastic change.  So instead I have my veggies in a cup.  Two weeks ago, while sick as a dog, I thought I’d try again but instead of blending I am juicing.  Oh yeah! JUICING BABY!  While juicing doesn’t make me visit the ladies room as often as the blending did I do feel great.  My refrigerator has never been so jam packed with fruits and vegetables as it has been lately. 

This is just a sneak peak at what my kitchen looks like most mornings and evenings. 

Other members in my home prefer more of a fruit juice than a green veggie juice.  

Here's to good health!
