DAY 13-- Augst 8, 2011
Today I consumed the nutrients from:
+ 1 carrot
+ 1 cucumber
+ 2 green leaf lettuce leaves
+ 2 kale leaves
+ 1 kiwi
+ 2 peaches
+ 50 small-medium red grapes
+ 8 strawberries
Man, it seems like all my juicing posts are more like confessionals. This morning when I was making the kids whole wheat muffins I may have sampled one or two finger fulls... or like, 6. I think that in my very tired brain I justified it by thinking that if it's liquid it's not as bad. Not that batter is "liquid" per-se, but you know what I'm talking about, right?
My dinner juice was cucumber-peach (which I must admit was a pleasant surprise). Naturally after Jasper tasted it he stated his all-to-predictable, "yeah... yummy". I told him the flavor he was tasting was cucumber. What he said after that was too cute: "ummm.... tu-tumber". Whatever kid, you're so adorable you can call it anything you want and I'll still be grinning from ear to ear. Okay, so maybe cheek bone to cheek bone is a better comparison, because let's be realistic-- who grins from ear to ear? Is that even possible? If so, please send pictures to Jaidab@gmail.com. (random tangent ends here)
Lessons learned today:
1. Muffin batter is not juice no matter how good it tastes.
2. Jasper's extra cute when he says "tu-tumber".
3. I'm in love with my job as a stay-at-home-mom.
4. I will be making a cucumber peach juice again.
