Juicing

So, I found that I actually don’t have to acquire a taste for juicing. It’s delicious! I’m using the Omega 8003 masticating juicer. It’s a hot little number!

Here’s a video of someone using it:

So far, I stick to simple things like carrots and celery and apples. But I have tried to slip in some stuff that I thought would make it nasty (like kale, collard and spinach) and, to my surprise, it hasn’t worked! Everything that comes out of this thing tastes great! Even my kids like it….and do you know how hard it is to get a kid to eat their veggies?

It really was a great investment. My daughter, who I’m finding may need to go on an even stricter diet than I have chosen for myself, needs to eliminate a lot of foods that for the average person would be nutritious. Adding veggies to her diet this way is pretty easy and pretty effective since the vitamins and minerals go straight to the bloodstream. It’s awesome!

Now, I haven’t been able to implement this everyday or in some sort of every morning routine because I stay up late studying and what not. Truth be told, I tend to sleep in as long as I can. We drink it at night. Maybe around two or three times a week. I plan to really get going with it over the break. Can’t wait!!
