So much has happened since I last posted. I still love peanut caramel, and I still eat a bit too much of it, but in these last few weeks I have packed up and left my home in Washington, gotten married (twice!), driven twenty hours down to California, and moved my entire life down here for school. I have already begun feeling homesick, but I have also found so many amazing things here that I couldn’t imagine leaving soon at all.
One of the first things I wanted to do once we settled in here was to get back on track with eating healthfully. Right before we left Washington, we watched “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead,” and then immediately proceeded to eat junk food for the few weeks following, and our bodies have definitely reacted to the changes; we have been feeling lethargic and stomach-achy for a while now, so we went exploring the little markets around here and purchased lots of fresh fruit and veggies to stock up on at home.
Yesterday, we reflected once again on the documentary, and we decided to spend some wedding gift cards to get a juicer. This has been one of my favorite decisions. I have been juicing everything today, and I even have a few good juice recipes that I have discovered by combining different fruits and different quantities.
At first, I started simple with Joe’s classic green juice recipe, but I quickly realized that I had no idea how much fruit was actually necessary to make juice, so I had to do some improvisation by replacing some apple ratios with pineapple. I also skipped the celery and ginger that normally go in because celery and ginger are gross. Maybe someday I will add them in again. For me, the improvised version actually tastes way better than any green juice I have had before. Let me know what you think!
Also check out my rad new glass bottle with the moon cycle on it. I LOVE IT.
Peace out dudes,
- ♥ 2 apples, peeled
- ♥ 1/2 pineapple, skin removed
- ♥ 15 kale leaves with stalks
- ♥ 2 cucumbers
- ♥ 1 lemon, peeled
- Place all items into the juicer.
- Stir, and enjoy!
- ♥ I have tried it with and without the lemon, and it is great either way!
