So I am on day 6 of juice. STILL LOVING IT. I did have one day that I had a headache but who knows what that was from. Saturday I went to the market and got an overload of fresh organic veggies. Its always a wonderful feeling to buy directly from the grower. I am fortunate that I get much from my BIL the organic farmer, but I still purchase a lot. I just wish I could grow everything. It has really made me want to expand our garden for next year. I got fresh beets, kale, cucumbers, a loaf of sourdough, some cheese, baby summer squash, green apples, and a ton of basil. I went right home and conjured up a new recipe. Its my favorite to date.
6 stalks Kale
1 golden delicious apple
1/2" slice of ginger
I am now doing 2 juices a day and a reasonable dinner. Reasonable to me means that I have an average portion and its not fried or smothered in cheese. Yesterday I made Chicken Enchiladas and tonight was spaghetti. I had to find something to do with the boat load of basil I had so I figured that some pesto would go PERFECTLY with the sourdough. ITS HEAVENLY. I swear I could eat the whole loaf along with the entire bowl of pesto. Oink oink. This, my friends, is why I will NEVER be skinny!
I was talking to a friend tonight and it has kinda stuck with me throughout the night. I think if I am going to be AWESOME to my body and give it a ton of vitamins and minerals all day.. I am not going to completely throw the day out of whack for dinner. I LOVE to cook... but it has given me more clarify about what I want to make for my meal of the day. I now look forward to making a great meal. I have made AWESOMELY good choices so far. I know that I don't want to 'blow my day' on PB&J or some crappy cheesesteak. I'd rather enjoy a fresh bowl of pesto and some great pasta. Makes sense, right?
NOTE.... if you are going to freeze this (as I do) do NOT add cheese.... wait until you are ready to use it.
