Day Five of Adventures in Juicing

Can it really be Day 5 already?! I feel like this should be harder to do. As today’s Thicky was anti-inflammatory, David asked me to make him one, too, which I thought was totally awesome. He knew there was avocado and apples, but I am not sure he realized there was cauliflower in it (he tells me he did know)! He would NEVER touch cauliflower OR broccoli OR brussel sprouts (I just love the cruciform veggies)! He drank it right down (after finishing his breakfast of scrambled eggs (from our own hens, of course!) and grits. I was and am so proud of him and drinking something that is GREEN! What a milestone.

I actually ran out of celery, spinach, and avocado, so we went to Wegman’s (THE best grocery store this side of the Mississippi!) to restock and I felt like I was missing out when I turned around and saw the large sausages the gentleman behind me in the checkout line had (he was obviously going to be grilling this weekend). Then I thought how lovely it would be to have a tin of Vienna sausages, but I cannot remember the last time I had them, so what the heck? I am NOT missing out on anything except better health than most! Yea!!!

Got home, made my THINNY with carrot, red cabbage, beetroot, apples, AND a tomato (couldn’t help taking a nip of that fresh tomato juice–yumm). Later this afternoon, I proceeded to mow an acre or so of lawn in the steamy heat–no worries.

Tomorrow, I get a special treat called a Tahini Cocoa Beany made with fresh almond milk (my raw almonds are soaking in water just waiting to be transformed). Jason Vale swears this tastes just like a chocolate milkshake. Cannot wait. His argument for NOT drinking REAL milk (and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE fresh, raw, grass-fed milk) is that humans are the only animals that still drink milk after being weaned. I think, yes, why is that, except it provides protein, and cheese is protein-rich and can be made for consumption during those times when your cow is dry. I am trying to work this out historically, and I am not coming to any fruitful conclusions. Oh well.

Nearly time to hit the proverbial hay and dream of soap swirls, and new designs!

Until tomorrow! Blessings,
