Thanks for the good suggestions from my post yesterday about my juicer dilema. I think I’m going with the Mack Daddy, but am going to mull it over for awhile longer…

Onto the eats.

Here’s last night’s Raw Veggie Love:
*Broc
*B.S.
*Jicama
*Red Peppers
*Carrots
*Juice of half an orange, agave, and crack black

Raw vegetables dressed in a clear containerI’ve also really been enjoying watermelon lately. So juicy and refreshing (thought that’d make a good title today).

Was just there yesterday, but needed unsweeted & unsulphured dried mango, walnuts for the Raw Vegan Brownies I’ve been pounding down lately, and some greens. As evidence that I have been pounding the chocolate love, Skylar told me she loves drinking my boobie milk because “it tastes just like chocolate mousse.” An honest statement. On both of our parts. Think I’m gonna back off the chocolate? Resounding, Hell No!

Then whipped up a Monster Smoothie. Yes, there are leftovers. Here’s what went into the Vita-Mix:
*1 Banana
*1 Orange
*2 Apples
*10 Raisins
*1 piece of that dried Mango
*10 Baby Carrots
*Handful of greens
*Thick stalk of Broc

Vegetables, fruit and greens in blenderHere’s the Result

Tip of the Day: Don’t be scared of crazy smoothie variations. You cannot really taste the bitterness of a broc stalk, or the greenness of peas, or greens, with all the other sweeter fruits in there. If it was just me partaking, I wouldn’t care if it was a little ummm, green tasting. But this is a great way to get your kids to eat their fruits and veggies, too and also play fridge cleanout. Worst that can happen? You feed your garbage disposal it’s dose of greens for the day.
