I woke this morning CRAVING spaghetti. Both of the girls are sitting here, one on each side, eating cream of wheat with banana. That sounds good too.
What inspired me to blog this morning was apples. Yes, apples. We go thru so many apples in this house and it's making me go crazy. I juice everyday and use about 2 apples. Sometimes 3 when I juice for the whole family. (kids, nana and Jose) So that's at least 14 apples a week. So I said out loud, "Lord, please give me an apple tree!" (My nana is a very religious woman.) Nana says, "Praise God! Ask and you shall receive baby!"
It's amazing how you can get fast food and feed a whole family for 6 bucks, but if I want apples for a week, I'm paying nearly a dollar a pound. If I wanted Organic apples, there goes another couple bucks. It's really sad, but I guess we have to pay top dollar for what the earth provides naturally. (sarcastic voice)
One day, I would like to have my own chicken coupe, apple orchard, lemon tree, rose bush and possibly my own cow. I'd have natural eggs and fruit! Juicing is expensive and I usually have to buy what is on sale. Here are the top foods I look for to make great juice!
Kale (any type)
Sweet Potato, cucumber and apples make the most juice! So with just one of those alone, you can make a fair helping! Sweet Potatoes also taste really great! They calm any taste of celery down!
Spinach and Kale do not juice that much, but you can taste the slightest bit!
Adding at least one apple to a serving of 2 glasses makes a world of a difference. As well as blackberries! I use only about 5 for 3 glasses full!
So with that being said. Lord, please give me an apple tree...
PEACE LOVE AND LIPGLOSS
