Juicing

Do yall have a hard time deciding on the "post" title like I do??
I'm telling you that is the hardest part of blogging for me.

With 2013 here..I am making an effort to manage my Gastroparesis, also known as GP, better.
Most days I do good, but then there are days with pain.

So the kids got me a juicer for Christmas. I can not have raw fruits and veggies because of my GP.
I can have green beans and steamed carrots, but no salad. And fruits nothing raw at all.

So..I set out and put my juicing plan into action.
I bought kale, spinach, carrots, pinneapple, pears, and celery for my first batch.


Here is everything all cut up and ready for a few days.
It wasn't that hard to prep food, I just kept singing to the Lord because he knows me and the kitchen don't really get along. :)

and here it is...my glass of juice. I juiced about 8oz of juice and then about 4oz of water. It is easier for me to digest.Although the kids say the celery over powered it, I think it was wonderful. No sugar, No high fructose nothing...just water and juice.

I really miss have salads..never thought I would ever miss that...so this is the best way for me to get all kinds of goodness in my body.

Hi Cyn, I made Dr Oz's "green drink" last week and to put it kindly, it was horrible! I need to play around with juicing more! I'm sure if you get the right combination, it is good! I think that it's great that you have found a way to get your fruits and veggies! I made homemade yogurt for the first time yesterday! It is so easy! I'm planning on using it in my smoothies!

Just curious how this is going for you. I am considering getting a juicer but I don't want another small appliance just sitting in the cabinet. Do you use it regularly? How is it to clean? I'm afraid that for me it would get tedious having to clean it and I would stop using it. (I'd rather be in the craft room than in the kitchen cleaning, Ha!)
