Bring On The Juice!
What a fabulous high on life feeling I’ve got right now. Keep reading and you’ll find out why…
First, Big Thank You to my Friend Justine for her post yesterday featuring my Raw Vegan Freezer Brownie Love! I am so glad you and your little one liked my “sludge”…enough to polish off the whole batch in one sitting.
Now that’s some chocolate love and I am soooo glad you loved it! I do not recommend recipes or keeping making the same thing over and over and over (aka broc & brussels’s for dinner practically every night and vegan brownies around midnight every night) unless it’s damn good. Glad you agreed :)
A recap of a few of my Eats from yesterday…
The Monster Smoothie I made yesterday.
Raw Veggies including: *Greens *Carrots *Red Peppers *Yellow Peppers *Jicama
Then some: *Broc *B.S. *Cukes *Red Peppers *Jicama *Carrots *Juice of 1/2 an orange & Agave
This morning started off with a run. Had a really rude interchange when a man’s dog was off the leash dashing all over the sidewalk and trying to jump on me. I politely & calmly simply said, “Lease Law.” He camly said, “Bite Me.” Ahhh, the pleasantry amongst neighbors these days.
So that was good reason to come home and do a little yoga! Marichyasana C with a wrist bind.
And Janu Shirsasana with a wrist bind, too.
Then Scott was kind enough to pick up enough greenery to make the Jolly Green Giant jealous! *Head of Romaine *Bunch of Celery *Bunch of Kale *4 Cukes *Bag of Carrots *Bag of Apples *Ginger
All this raw freshness was just waiting to go into this….
My brand new Juicer!!!!!!!!! The model I chose was the Breville Juice Fountain Elite, referred to as the Mack Daddy in this post. I got it from BB & B where I was able to use a 20% off coupon, save those coupons for stuff like this. Made the machine about $40 cheaper than the cheapest place I’ve seen it online. And like I mentioned yesterday, if this is anything like my Vita-Mix, when I look back on things, I will wonder why I didn’t do this years sooner.
Here’s My New BFF
Sparkly Stainless Steel…doesn’t is just look like a Workhorse?
You’ll have to stay tuned for my first juicing post. I did it, and the short answer: I’m freakin’ hooked! Love at first sip. OMG, Mouthgasm. So tell me everyone, what is your favorite juice recipe?? There are so many. Sarma has some great one’s in her RFRW book and Gena posted her Top 10 Faves, but I am curious about your tried-n-trues. Do tell!
