Juicing


I recently watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" on Netflix. What an eye opener! I'm not obese and it still spoke volumes to me. I highly suggest you watch it if you can.

A year or so ago, my mom gave me her juicer that she wasn't using anymore.  I never used it. It was still sitting in the bag under the uh....oil tank in my pantry/utility room.  I pulled heavy contraption out and schlept it up the stairs to the kitchen.  It took me a while to figure out how to set it up.

I washed the veggies (Organic Kale, carrots, lemon, green apple, and swiss chard seem to be the winning combination) and juiced them up.

Wow!  It definitely tasted green but lemony and green apple-ly.  The crazy thing is that after I drank it, I felt like my cells were singing the Hallelujah chorus. They were seriously playing ping pong with each other.  They were happy.

It's better than a coffee rush.

Have you tried the green smoothies (aka Green Monster) using a blender? I've toyed with the idea of juicing in order to cram in more veggies, but I'm not sure it's worth the expense. Do you have a preference?

I haven't "green" blended yet. I guess you get the fiber then too huh? You do lose the roughage stuff with the juicer. I'm SO amazed at how many veggies I can cram into a glass of juice. So cool!

Strangely enough, I'd rather "drink" a salad than eat it.
