Down for the Count

I’ve been away from blogging for a while because I am really sick!  Hell, I don’t know if it’s dust or dairy or stress but I feel like crap! Woke up in the middle of the night coughing, can’t sleep, sore throat, post nasal drip.. just plain run down. I haven’t eaten terribly but no energy to do much prepping and planning. Can’t wait to get well and get back on track. In preparation I have bought a food processor (for chopping nuts and dates, etc.) and a new salad spinner and exchanged my juicer because that darn thing did not like kale or celery and those are necessary components of my morning juices and smoothies. I am also excited to start working out again. Still waiting for my shipment from overseas but inside are my yoga and kettle bell tapes that I have never used but plan to when they arrive. The mindset is ready, now I just need the rest of the factors to fall into place!

Juicing

IMG_0631I had a great juicer when I lived overseas but not only is it stuck at customs right now but it is 220 or 240V so I can’t use it anyways so I researched juicers to find one I liked. I knew it was important to research because I tried juicing at my friend’s house when I first got back into town using her new juicer and it was terrible! It barely squeezed out any juice and it was a pain in the ass to clean! That is unacceptable! After a few hours I settled on an Omega juicer and I like it.

This is not a review so I won’t go into tons of details but I liked it because it was exactly the same as my old juicer so it was a snap to set up but it comes with a ten-year warranty. It didn’t like juicing celery stalks and got jammed but that was my fault because I forgot to cut the stalks up into small pieces.

The amount of juice that it squeezes out is AMAZING and the pulp is extremely dry.

I made a crazy juice. I made it up with the following ingredients: beets, celery, kale, apple, lemon, carrot, romaine, grapes, cucumber and plum. It was okay. I can’t wait for my shipment to arrive because I have an awesome juicing book that I bought in there that I am dying to try!IMG_0627 IMG_0628
