Hi everybody! Man, these last couple of months have really gotten away from me. What can I say, my life is busy and I love it. I have a good job, am due for a raise, have four people beneath me, with more on the way, and I feel I'm respected. It's awesome.
I've been eating better, feeling better and since my move, I live better. It's been a good year for me and with two years of hardness, I think I'm due.
I'm not taking it for granted. I feel I'm investing in myself, and food is one way.
Look at these fruits and veggies! This is from the same CSA I mentioned earlier. Now that summer is here in California, I get amazing items in amazing colors. Those colors translate so well to juicing. Let me show you!
|Apple, celery and lemon. |
|Char, celery, apple and orange.|
|Kale, celery, apple and orange.|
|Watermelon, pear, char, celery, lettuce, and lemon.|
|Apple, kiwi, pear and beet.|
|Watermelon, beet, apple, char, lemon and mango.|
|Red cabbage, apple, kiwi and lemon.|
|Char, beets, cucumber, and apple.|
|Beet, cucumber, apple and kale.|
|Juiced veggies for soup stock.|
|Juice plus veggie pulp equal a lovely veggie soup!|
This juicer has been so much fun. Along with my CSA it's already paid for itself. I waste less food now from spoiling, and I juice for breakfast and I'm golden.
My CSA is $40 bi-weekly, delivered. Each of the below is a week's worth delivered. These are the middle sized boxes.
All the colors and brightness and beauty. All the creations I get to make and challenges of items I get to try. Yummy! I love it. I'm absolutely loving it! $20 a week for pounds of fresh organic produce, hells yeah!
I know some CSA's take food stamps, but that may depend on your state. If you can go for it, I say do it. Sure, you don't choose what you get, but that's life. You can't always choose what you eat. Sometimes you have to make due!
More to post later!
