I have been making an effort to juice more regularly again.  The problem I ran in to was making my juices way to complicated.  I thought I need to have a specific recipe and lots of greens and herbs in order for it to be a “good” juice.  I was watching a video of my favorite raw food youtuber and Dan the Lifer regenerator was like, keep it simple and juice apples, cucumbers, and carrots.  It hit me that I often have a couple of things in my refrigerator.  So the other day I had a great juice of cucumber, carrot, ginger, and apples.  Another juice I made was apples, oranges, ginger, and carrots. 

Keep it simple and get your juice on!

My something new

My something new

My husband and I did some grocery shopping yesterday and walked through the natural/organic section of the grocery store and I stopped in front of the peanut butter and jelly/preserve section. I had originally intended to get some organic, natural, and probably salt-free peanut butter. I had a taste for peanut butter but did not want to have all the salt and sugar you find in the national brands. While standing in front of the natural/organic peanut butter my eyes looked over and noticed the almond butter. I’ve seen almond butter everytime I shop for peanut butter and just never really stopped to pay much attention.

I had a great idea for a salad last week.  We were out of tomatoes and I did not want to eat carrots for some reason.  I needed to make a salad and had a refrigerator full of greens.  I decided to make an all green salad and it was great.  I should have taken a picture.

Salad Ingredients

Green leaf lettuce

Kale

cucumbers

celery

spinach

avocado

It was very hearty.  I cut the kale up very fine to make it easier to eat.  I really like when I can take whatever I have in the kitchen and make a meal out of it.

My younger sis decided that she and I should collaborate on a cookbook.  Neither of us is a writer, but both of us are enthusiastic, but untrained cooks.  We’ve given ourselves a deadline of 6 months to come up with a set number of recipes, which we will then swap and try to make what the other has come up with.  This is definitely an experiment.  One that I hope will be fun for both of us.  I’ve got 3 recipes in mind so far.

So, my husband and I have been juicing a lot more lately.  I usually try to have fresh juice 3 to 5 times a week.  To that end we are always trying to do this easily and with little fuss.  Here is a quick juice recipe.  In 5 minutes this mix of celery, carrot, cucumber, apples, pears, ginger, and lemon

turned into this

The only changes I made were the addition of 2 apples and I did not use all of the ginger.  I used about a thumb size amount.  The juice was fantastic.

Many, many moons ago I made a post about Aldi‘s grocery store (see here http://wp.me/p91IK-1z)

Well, just recently an Aldi’s grocery store has moved into my neighborhood and my husband and I ventured in to have a look around.  It was basic to say the least.  I had my quarter ready for the shopping cart and my large canvass bag for my groceries.  I am happy I did not drive out of town to shop at Aldi because of the small selection of groceries.  There is no way I could only shop at Aldi and get everything that I need.  What I am happy to say is that they have very cheap produce.

Yunus 10:18

And they worship besides Allâh things that hurt them not, nor profit them, and they say: "These are our intercessors with Allâh." Say: "Do you inform Allâh of that which He knows not in the heavens and on the earth?" Glorified and Exalted be He above all that which they associate as partners with Him!
