In my post about Zak’s juice fast, a couple of you asked about some of his favorite juice recipes. Let’s just say that there has been a lot of experimenting on his part lately. He often makes what he calls “Kitchen Sink Juice”. I’m sure this title needs no explanation (but here I go anyway.) He basically piles together whatever he finds in the fridge and then proceeds to shove it into the juicer. From where I stand there does appear to be some rhyme and reason to what he makes for himself – often adding greens, carrots and beets for the nutrients, plus some apple, pear, lemon, lime and/or ginger to help with the flavor. But then there was that time that he juiced an onion. And that day when he juiced 4 cloves of garlic. We’ve put garlic in juice before – but not 4 cloves. And not until we had that vampire problem.
Yesterday was my 34th birthday. Thirty four. What a perfectly ordinary age.
Although I think I’m officially in my “mid-30’s” now. How about “early in my mid-30’s”? That’s a little easier to swallow.
Getting older isn’t so bad, it’s the looking older part that doesn’t thrill me. There are more gray hairs sprouting from the top of my head than I can/should pull out now. I’ve been noticing more fine lines around my eyes lately too. And there is definitely less distance between the floor and my butt these days. Hmmm, what other embarrassing things about myself should I admit here? I think I’ll stop now.
I rarely buy books. I much prefer to spend my money on late fees at the library. I did buy Deep Nutrition because it’s not in our library system and b.) I need more than 3 weeks to get through most books these days. (I can read Goodnight Moon in about 3 minutes flat though. Just saying.)
When I bought Deep Nutrition, I also bought The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth because hello, free supersaver shipping! And b.) I get this dorky smile on my face whenever I read the myriad of awesome things that good foods can do for our bodies.
