Green Power

Do you know the power of green veggies? It's called enzymes, folks! Ever since I was diagnosed with cancer, I've been on a quest to find a way to incorporate better nutrition into my life. I doubt I will become a vegan or a vegetarian, because my love of meat is too great. =P HOWEVER, I have reduced my intake of meat by a lot.

Yesterday was the first time I had red meat in over four weeks. For a person who used to eat beef at every meal...this is quite an accomplishment. =P

I went and purchased a juicer and have been juicing fresh GREENS daily. I force everyone to drink it. =) What do I juice? Everything I can think of! I just go to the grocery store once a week and stock up on as many organic veggies as I can fit into my fridge. I forgot to buy some garlic and ginger, but I plan to add those as well in the upcoming weeks.

A little wheatgrass...I'm going to try and find a way to grow this off our balcony because it's a pain trying to store all this in the fridge and I don't feel like going to Whole Foods each and every day. It's REALLY difficult (near impossible) trying to juice wheatgrass using a standard juicer, so I'm debating whether to purchase a wheatgrass juicer.

Try it! I promise it doesn't taste bad. Throw in some blueberries, raspberries, or blackberries if you want some sweetness. ;)

  3. I'm sold! I'm going to buy a juicer now. Do you recommend your juicer? It looks pretty sturdy. (Why won't this let me comment?!)

  5. I was wondering if you did decide to grow your own wheatgrass and how much a juicer for it costs? I actually love the taste of it, though we don't sell it in my town.
