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!
