Rawoctober is running in full force and I hope your fasting goals are being met! As I continue my journey towards a healthier lifestyle I am also constantly reminded of how expensive eating healthy is! OMG at my grocery bill for fresh produce versus grabbing a burger of the .99 cent menu. This country is backwards when it comes to the cost of things but that’s a blog post for another day. Anyhoo, I refuse to visit the grocery store until my frig is empty. With that being said I went for a 4 mile run today and came back HUNGRY! The frig consists of a black of black grapes, some blueberries, 3 kiwis, carrots, 2 apples, 2 oranges, and 1/2 bag of spinach. I should be good for 2-3 more days! 🙂 With that being said, I grabbed the container of blueberries, some grapes, and some carrots. OMG DELICIOUS! The blueberries and grapes overpower the juice making it incredible. I wish I had juiced grapes before! The carrots are there to keep my eyes sharp. 😉
3/4 cup blueberries
1 cup black grapes
1 cup carrots
Here’s a nice refreshing summer juice for ya! Chief requested and I obliged. It was light, tart, and delicious. 😀
2 cups watermelon
Add ice to the juice or throw in the fridge to chill.
Chief and I decided to go to WOF for some roller coaster action. Since this is my first week of no meat, I decided to whip up something before heading to the park so that I wouldn’t be tempted with the SAD (Standard American Diet) options. I didn’t have a recipe, but I did have variety in the frig. I decided to juice it all. 🙂 It was YUMMY. AND CHIEF LIKED IT!!
Green Goddess Recipe (2 servings):
6 gala apples
8 stalks of kale
2 cups of spinach (bagged organic spinach)
2 slices of ginger
I also made some homemade guac and homemade tortilla chips. I prefer baking my tortilla chips in the oven. It allows me to flavor them anyway I want. (And I’m so excited about that pic 🙂 )
Homemade guac and tortilla chips
Until next time.
2 gala apples
2 thin slices of ginger root
Apple Pear Ginger Juice fresh from the juicer
