Some of you have been following along with my juicing experience. You’ve asked if I’m more healthy by doing this, and I have been unsure how to answer in that I am pretty darn healthy. At my last doctor’s appointment, she ordered a full blood workup, testing everything that could be tested, and the only number that was out of whack was sodium. It was low. The doctor asked if I drink lots water. I do. She told me I could eat more salt but to not tell anyone because doctors never say that! This was all before the juicer came into our life.
(And as an aside, Terry is so healthy that our doctor has told him it’s really disgusting that someone his age is in such good shape. We are very thankful and hope to keep it that way.)
I usually make juice every day or so. About five times a week. Terry has been surprised that I have kept it up so faithfully. This week that changed because I have been busy in the afternoons which is when I make the juice. This morning I was feeling kind of crummy and tired and then I remembered that I had not made juice this week so made the decision to correct that. I made apple, basil, carrot, and kale juice this afternoon before Terry took off to run some errands. Looked like sludge but was very tasty as the carrots and apples are so sweet.
Terry enjoyed it along with me which was a good thing since he had eaten meat both at breakfast and lunch today. Once a month he takes photos for a local organization that has its breakfast meeting at a nearby Mexican restaurant. The food is excellent, but he consumes a number of meat dishes instead of the usual cereal that he has for breakfast. Then I made turkey sandwiches for our lunch. We definitely needed some veggies in there somewhere and the juice contributed that missing piece. Helps us both to feel better. So, I will get back into the routine of making juice.
