I had a run on the agenda first thing this morning, but I was feeling a little peckish so I ate half a MamaBar before I hit the pavement. Coconut oil is my friend.
A balmy 34 degrees this morning. Cold Neck Lessons learned on Monday, I dug out my turtle neck this morning as well as my favorite pink knit cotton hat!
I knit that hat myself I’ll have you know! It’s one of the few things I’ve ever knit, so I get a little too excited when I the opportunity arises for me to point that fact out. I told everyone I passed this morning that I knit the hat on my head. Just wait til my new city neighbors get a load of me. They have no idea what they’re in for.
Toasty warm for my 5.3 mile jaunt through my neighborhood, home 44 minutes later to get home and whip up the wonder juice of yesteryear thanks to a restock of our carrot supply.
Carrot Apple Ginger juice – today with lemon too! One to keep and one to share.
I just may have cursed and rolled my eyes back into my head while drinking this, in utter disbelief at how amazing this combo is. Have you added a juicer to your Christmas/Hanukkah/Yule/Kwanza list yet? I know this lady has! Get on it!
Your Juicy Lesson for today!
I’ve been asked before if you can make juice in the blender, and the answer is no, not technically. You could certainly make a carrot apple ginger smoothie in the blender, but you’ll still get all the “pulp” that the juicer would extract. The juicer removes the juice from the fruit and vegetable pulp, allowing you to get a lot more bang for your buck, packing in a ton of live enzymes and antioxidants in a small amount of space. You lose out on fiber when you juice fruits and vegetables, but if like me, you eat a giant salad almost every day along side plenty of other fiber rich foods like beans, lentils and enough vegetables to consider starting your own farmer’s market right out of your fridge – fiber is not an issue.
Off to go spread the news about my hat – I knit it myself ya know!
