No rigid rules, labels or dogmas.... just REAL food, for your body, mind & soul!
I decided to try some juicing today. This morning I made a green juice that had pineapple, apples, cucumber, aloe, lemon and lime. This afternoon I've made a carrot and celery based juice with red pepper and lemon juice. Reminding my gentle readers that I'm producing juice for two (my DIL is juicing as well), this is a lot of work! I have yet to reach the coveted two quart point, rather I seem to be managing a quart and a half.
I also have a contentious little juicer to deal with (a Singer Elite, possibly older than my oldest child) that really only juices carrots and apples, and only after a few tussles. *sigh* Otherwise, I'm using my vitamix and nutmilk bags. This is all dreadfully time consuming. I think each batch, including cleanup, took a good hour. I do not have four spare hours in my day. They simply won't be there after I start school next week.
1. Costco sells the Jack LaLane juicer for about $90. I've been given authorization to purchase one later this week. (I think two hours of juicing is very loud to my husband's sensitive ears, particularly if you toss in all the sighing that goes along with it on my part).
2. Get my DIL into the kitchen to make a round or two per day.
Having read that colon cleansing/enemas should be included in any juicing regimen, I'm concerned. I don't have time/money for colonics. I've never enema'd in my life. I'm wondering if some psyllium husk would do or salt water flushes? I'd like a response here, if possible, and if I don't get one, I'll head to the Loo and ask there.
Juice on, friends, juice on!
