Day 4-Gimme MOAR!

So I slept in today and got a little bit of a late start. My son doesn't go to school on Fridays, so we don't generally wake up early. Nature called, I answered and went back to sleep.

I made up some juice this morning because I didn't have all the ingredients to make any of the breakfast juices and I just threw some stuff together. It was kinda gross at first, but it grew on me.

Tricycake's Nasty Ass Juice
2 Carrots
2 Apples
2 Kinda old tangerines that we had laying around
1 cup of blueberries
20 mint leaves

So the tangerine rind did a number on the taste of the juice. It was too tart. I'll try peeling the next time.

So I was smart and juiced my mid-morning juice along with my morning juice to save time and conserve water. Washing fruit, veg, and juicer 3-4 times a day is sure to raise the water bill, so I'm going to come up with some conservation ideas. 

1 Fennel Bulb
1 Cucumber
3 Celery Stalks
3 cups spinach

This juice is so nice. The green juices sometime have the overwhelming grassy/green taste, this one is nice and light.

Dinner Juice
Bountiful Brassica Juice
2 Broccoli Stalks
1/2 Head of Green Cabbage
6-8 leaves of Kale
1 Granny Smith Apple
1/4 Lemon (peeled)
1" ginger root

Yummy! Another winner of a green juice. The lemon and ginger meld nicely! Yielded a bunch, so this will last til bedtime.

I feel fine. You have to have to have to continuously drink water, or you'll get dry mouth. Stock up on toilet paper and/or Depends, because toilet time is ALL THE TIME. My sinuses appear to be draining and my throat issues still persists. It's like I have a giant lugie in the back of my throat that I can't swallow or hock up (ewwww)...gonna curl up with some hot ginger tea and see if that helps.

Hey, enjoy some awesomeness!
