Juicing Experience: Days 12 & 13

Made an awesome combination of fruit and vegetables. I drank almost the whole carafe by myself; again.

It was the weekend and I had my grandchildren all weekend.  Sorry for not being able to take the time to post each day.  What can you expect with a very active 4 & 6 year old?  :)

I had my grandchildren all weekend, so juicing and posting was a little more difficult than usual. 

On Friday I was good and juiced all day; however, I pigged out on Oreo cookies with the kids while watching scary movies.

Day 12

I made an amazing juice recipe.

  • 1 red pear
  • 1 apple
  • 1 peeled orange
  • 1/4 beet
  • 1 slice ginger root
  • handful of parsley & spinach
  • 1 kale leaf

This was an awesome combination of fruit and vegetables.  I drank almost the whole carafe by myself; again.

I liked it so much; I drank it on Day 13 also.

It was easy to drink the juice for breakfast and in between meals.  However, I had to feed the grandkids more than juice, so I ended up eating lunch, dinner and snacks with them.  some were healthy snacks: bananas and the pumpkin seeds we made.

The overdose of Oreo Cookies sure did take it's toll.  My stomach was so upset, that I don't think I can even look at another Oreo cookie again.  Also, I shouldn't since they are not Gluten Free...

The fun part was having the kids ask about my garden and about the juice I made.  It felt good to share my knowledge of the garden and why I am juicing; I still couldn't get them to try the awesomeness of the juice though.  I even explained it tasted better and was better for them than the Old Orchard Apple Juice I was pouring for them.  They weren't falling for that explanation.

I have become addicted to Pinterest.  Yes, I discovered another fun tool.  I have been pinning juicing recipes for future use; getting ready for the huge feast/fast that I will begin after the holidays.  I am almost ready to start it now, but I have also been pinning some awesome gluten-free recipes for the holidays that I would love to try.

Everyone should have one of these.  It makes Pinterest so easy, now I can have juicing recipes right at my fingertips.
