Colin and I bought a great juicer maybe 16 months ago in an attempt to eat more friuts and veggies. The first few encounters with our new appliance didn’t go all that well, so I’m afraid it just sat on the counter and collected dust. We talked about giving it another go from time to time but never quite got there…Until…
We watched a DVD called Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. It’s along the lines of “Super Size Me” with an Aussie as the main character, which is nice. (I love the accent.) There was enough inspiration in that little flim to carry us two months and counting. What kicked us into gear at first was Colin getting the bug, then I came to appreciate how much better I feel if I juice 3 times a week or more. I also liked the cartoon secton in the movie showing me what repair work was being done in my body by these extra nutrients.
It’s always best fresh, so we have learned our lesson about big batches and trying to freeze it. It’s just better to make peace with the semi-hassle of washing the machine each time. Now, washing up is no big deal, but at first that was a pain.
This batch was beets, tomato, carrots, cucumber, apples, and cabbage. Yum.
Several more months of farmers markets left this summer, and we’re finally making good use of this big machine. I’m liking the near future.
Have you dusted off anything lately?
