O.K. let me explain juicing! LOL For me it is not a diet, but a way of life. My juicer broke a while back and now I have a new one, so I am back to it. My hubby says it is just one more of my hippy things.

I bought a juicer from wal crap. There is no need to buy an expensive one, the cheap ones work just fine! Today I went and bought my fruit and vegi's for the week. I try to buy what is on sale because that means that I will get something new every week. This week I will be having apple, tomatoes, green peppers, cauliflower, and broccoli. I do need to try to find another fruit, but I will do that tomorrow.

Anyway, I will try to use equal parts of everything. I run everything through the juicer. I try to make about a cup and a half of juice. Because it is still has to much pulp for me I stain the juice as I am pouring it into the cup. I then add a scoop of soy protein powder and mix well. Then I add a straw and drink! I do this in the mornings and it really gets me off to a good start. Don't get me wrong, I still have my coffee!

If you type into your search engine the benefits of juicing, you will find so many articles that you will be amazed. Here is the place where I order my protein powder from. Yes, that is our web page. They sell all of the hippy stuff that I like. Everything from organic laundry soap to our protein powder. I am not trying to plug our store. Anyway if you type in protein powder the stuff I use should come up.

So that is juicing. I do it for my health.

So anyway. Today was so nice here. It was almost 90 degrees! I just love warm weather. Tomorrow I have to go work, and then the rest of the week is mine! I think I am going to wash all of the cars. It will give me an excuse to be in the sun and I can do something productive!

I off to finish a baby blanket.

Um.....that sounds really healthy but not very tasty.....who knows. I am trying to be healthy so I may try that but maybe with different fruits and veggies. Thanks for letting me know what it is.

I tried the juicing thing for about a month! YUCK! That stuff tastes awful. No matter how you blend it, still Yucky. I know its really healthy and all, but just couldn't take that taste. Enjoy!
God Bless,

Hmmmm... you may actually be a little more hippy than me. Although I did manage to cure athlete's foot with vinegar... *wink*
My sister in law is slightly more hippy than me. They taught their baby sign language so he could communicate before he had the physical capacity to speak and you know what... he is 2 1/2 and talks in paragraphs... he is extremely articulate. It's pretty cool. I'll have to check out your website... post it on your sidebar so we can check back there!
