Since I’m now on a much less restrictive liquid diet and need to make sure I get all the vitamins and what not that I can, I’ve decided to forego selling our Juicing machine and put it back to work.
Fresh juices I’m told have the highest levels of everything possible from the fruit and veg used to make them. They certainly are much more flavourful then what comes out of a carton or tin.
Today’s first juice used:
- 2 x Kiwi (very ripe)
- 4 x Apples
- 2 x Oranges
This made nearly 1 pint of juice. It’s quite good, just an edge of tartness to it from the oranges I think.
For "dinner" I made a veg drink I found on juicingbook.com called Caesar Salad. It’s very orange in colour, as expected from the carrots, but oddly enough it does have just a hint of Caesar Salad taste to it, very interesting.
I would be very interested in hearing all about how you are coping with your new lifestyle! I envy your courage and willpower! How are you doing since your surgery? Do you feel okay? Was there a lot of pain?
