Anyway, on a positive note, I got my juicer in the mail yesterday! I couldn't believe how easy it was to operate and how quiet it was! I guess the infomercial didn't lie! That made my night. I made such good juice. The hubby even like it too. There's no name for it, I just kept throwing stuff in the juicer until I loved it... here's my recipe:
-Half a watermelon half
-1 macintosh apple
It makes about 2 cups of juice, I promise it's so good... it was so tasty and the best part is, with the juicer that I got you can put the whole rind in and everything, even the vines for the grapes go in because of the nutrient value. The hubby thought it was so tasty and I couldn't get over how sweet it was and how filling. I honestly didn't want anything else to eat- normally towards the end of the night I'm fiening for something, but not last night, I'm very happy with my $140 purchase. Definitely worth it- I debated because I'm saving money for Aruba and the wedding, but I need to stay motivated and this is another spindle on my wheel.
Today my mother and I signed up for Sam's Club in order to buy bulk fruits and veggies for the juicer. I also bought some Slim Fast snack bars- the peanut crunch ones taste just like butterfingers! Granted, you have to have willpower in order to buy these because they are wayyy too good, it's kinda scary how good they are. I say put them somewhere where you don't see them... Outta sight out of mind, right? Back to the fruits and veggies, I know in the end it will be worth it, but why does everything have to cost so much damn money? Shouldn't the healthy stuff be cheaper than the shitty stuff? Why are bags of chips cheaper then bags of grapes? America wonders why people are fat! The poorer you are the less good stuff you can afford- we've definitely got our priorities in the wrong places. It's so sad, thank God I have a little extra to buy fruits and veggies- I count my blessings everyday...
I'm a little full right now from the salad I ate earlier with my mom and the chicken I had, so I can't even think of juicing tonight. But tomorrow I want to think up something where I can add some baby spinach to- I love baby spinach, I'm hoping it juices well.
Can't wait to start a new day, but I need to get some sleep, I've been up way too long. Long walk with my mom tomorrow (if the weather coroporates) and I've got some stuff to do for the wedding and for classes, all before work at 4... At least I'm off Thurs and Fri from classes for Holy Week. Now, it's Family Guy and nap time till the hubby comes home. Gotta love it...
