NakedJuices

We use to "juice" a lot and seal the juices in airtight containers and freeze them.  P. and I would devote weekends to buying fruit and veggies from an area u-pick farms all for the purpose of squishing them in the juicer.  I remember the first time we took the kids apple picking...Ade was 5...he looked at the apples on the trees in the orchard and quipped, "the apples are dirty".  We cracked up...the plight of city kids...LOL...



We slowly stopped juicing over debating whose turn it was to clean the juicer...that was a pain...getting all that pulp out of the filter took forever...ahhh, the plight of being accustomed to convenience...LOL



A few months ago we came across this brand of fruit juices and I'm now addicted.  I must have one if not 3 of them each day.  I've pretty much eliminated carbonated beverages, opting instead for one of these juices.  From all the juices I've tried, this brand comes the closest to fresh squeezed.  My favorite is the Strawberry Banana...but I love them all except for the one with coconut.  I entered my zip code (on their website) to see who else carries them in my area besides Kroger and I see they can be found at Sam's Club.  (Dang, why not Costco!?) But I'll check Sam's next week sometime.



Today I feel better.  It was such a leap to write yesterday's post.  I use to maintain a seperate blog for talking about health but I stopped posting there but have left it up due to other people with PH who have stumbled across it and emailed me to thank me for putting into words their feelings and struggles.  But today is a good day...don't know if any colour will fly around here but my grandson is here with my kiddos out of school today and that is enough.  Dscn2288_copy

  3. Hello Karen,
    I am so happy that you are having a better day. I thought you might like these words apoken by Maya Angelou:
    "I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow."

  4. A wonderful grandbaby, so sweet and he looks like you!
    Juices do pack on the calories too you know, even without added sugar so be careful...I dilute my juices with mineral water or I just have half a small glass instead of a full one...also eat the fruits and veggies instead of juicing them.
    I used to drink almost a liter of juice in one sitting...now hardly any at all.
