Juicing on the Road

April 3, 2008 at 4:22 pm 8 comments

We have juice! When we stopped in Tampa, Hallie and Chris had a Champion Juicer that they were looking to trade…so we acquired this beautiful beast of a juicer and have been enjoying it. I made a large batch of green lemonade recently, and it just made me soooooo happy. I love the “buzz” I get from green juice (it’s way better than a coffee buzz!). Paired with a big green salad, it’s a very filling meal.

In such a small space, it’s rather messy to clean up the juicer afterward…so we don’t use it every day. But I love having the option. And now I can make Magic Carrot Juice whenever my little heart desires…happiness in a cup!

    I am happy you got a juicer!! I just sat down with my own mason jar of green lemonade! MMM. I am looking forward to trying the Magic Carrot Juice too. I have just recently found your blog and look forward to all the inspiration!

    I’ve been making green smoothies for the family for a while now (and they all really like it), but I have to admit that I like my green lemonade better!

    But I also don’t make it everyday… I need a better juicer. I have had my eye on a SoloStar II juicer for a while now. Well… maybe someone would want my hardly used Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker, soymilk maker, and my cheap juicer, so I could get me my SoloStar. lol

    That’s a cute picture, btw!

    this is to comment on the Macaroons. I made them and froze them like you said. And they didn’t turn out like I thought they would not really sweet. So what I did is i used two bananas, 1 cup of almond milk, some honey, and enough frozen macaroons in the blender to have it like a chocolate milk shake it was sooooo good. hope you can try it. My family and I are veggies but I started the raw food thing on Easter and am doing good. I feel great. thanks for all your great wisdom. Keep spreading the love.

    Very cool! I dont know how you fit all this in an RV….I know how hard it is to fit all my toys in my kitchen. You are my hero. πŸ™‚ (wow…that makes me sound like a total suck up!!!)

    I found your website by sheer accident and I am so glad I did! I am enjoying it soooo much!
    I own a Vita Mix and a Jack Lalanne Juicer and they have come out of the closet!

    Carolyn…yes, the juicer is a beast. It lives under the table when not in use. πŸ™‚

    Carolyn…ooooh I bet they are so much happier now that they can breathe out in the open air! πŸ™‚ hee hee. So glad you’re reading…come back often!

    Vita-mixes are beasts, too- I wish I could afford to buy you one, too! (Mine was a gift from my parents) We love to make juices and smoothies and soups in ours- Eliana pushes the buttons! πŸ™‚ I’m so glad that you have a juicer now- however *large* it is- so worth it!

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

β€œFinish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
