Juicer Bloody Marys – Pinterest Recipe Review

Bloody Marys from Juiced Vegetables :)

I want to start this post off with a bit of an update. Last week I posted about water. I was looking for solutions on how to drink more of it. Remember? Sure you do!

So I was at Walmart over the weekend and I found this cup for $5. I had a bit of leftover birthday money, so I bought it. And… I LOVE IT! I easily refill it 3 or 4 times a day. That’s a lot of water, people! I love that I only have to do it 3 or 4 times, it is much more convenient for me than having to refill after every 10 oz, like before. I love that it is pretty much spill proof (a must, with kids). And I love the straw. Love it. I highly recommend this cup for anyone that drinks water. And you

Hydration. Fluid. Water.

Hydration through fluid (more specifically water) is SO important to your health!!!

What do you do to ensure that you drink enough water, and just how much a day do you drink? Right now I’m drinking around 42-48 oz a day. I’m pretty sure that is about 20 oz less than what I need, right? This is an area that, oddly, I am really struggling in. I love water, so I don’t get it. I think I just get too busy and don’t realize that time is going by… So today, I’m asking for help!

Do you just carry a water with you all the time and drink it throughout the day? Or do you set a timer for once an hour and drink a certain amount as it goes off? Do you find that it is easier to get enough if you use a larger container over a smaller one (or vice versa)? I am looking

Apple Juice: Three Way Comparison

Comparison between three Apple Juices

Last week while I was grocery shopping I noticed that “Simply Apple” juice was on sale, so I bought a bottle. The Husband used to buy their grapefruit one often, but it’s been a long time. Anyway.

I decided to run a little test. While at the store I also bought a can of frozen apple juice concentrate, and a 3 pound bag of red delicious apples.

I came home and made the frozen juice.

And then I poured the simply juice into a jar.

Then I got out the juicer and juiced the entire bag of apples.

Notice a difference? Let’s put them side by side and compare.

Which one would you want to drink? I also put a pencil behind the frozen and juiced to show just how clear the frozen is.

I tasted all three. The

Sipping Dirt (or Busy Apple Beet Juice)

Dirty Produce

This week has been a long week. Busy Boy has been sick with a cold for the past couple of days. I’ve been feeling a bit down as well. Some friends are remodeling their kitchen, so we have been trying to help them out when we can, and have had their kids at our house quite a bit (because who wants kids in a house where construction is going on?). My knees and ankles are back to hurting again, so no running. And it’s been freezing outside, so I wouldn’t want to be out there running anyway. Everything just keeps adding up. I was supposed to go to the grocery store on Tuesday, but life was busy on Tuesday and it didn’t happen.

So all day today (Wednesday) I have been trying to figure out what to write about for Thirsty Thursday. I wasn’t

Filled with LIFE after being Sick and FAT?

Fat Sick Dead

 

Not too long ago I watched a fantastic documentary on Netflix called “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead”. The movie is about a guy named Joe Cross who, literally, was fat, sick and nearly dead. He was overweight. He had an autoimmune disease, and high cholesterol, and was at risk for stroke and heart attack. He decided that enough was enough. The movie chronicles his trip across the United States while doing a 60 day juice fast.

After watching the video I started looking into getting a juicer, because a juice fast can’t be done on processed, store bought juice. It needs to be done with Fresh, Whole fruits and vegetables. And it needs to be mostly vegetables. It took a couple of weeks for me to find the right juicer for us. I went back and forth. I really wanted a

My Favorite Lover

My Favorite Lover

I met The Husband when I worked in a coffeehouse. It was there that my love affair began. No, not with The Husband. That happened later, since he was dating a coworker. I’m talking about coffee. Some may say it is an addiction, but I choose to say that it is a love. Some nights I go to bed for no other reason than knowing I can have a hot cup of coffee when I wake up.

I have downgraded from coffeehouse coffee, though. Who has $4.50 to spend on coffee every day? Certainly not me (and really, I never did. One of the perks of works in the coffeehouse was all free coffee I wanted).

My drink of choice back then was a double short caramel vanilla latte. Let me break that down for those of you who don’t know the lingo.
