Juicing & Salads ~ Continue!
I'm trying to keep my mind and body busy with other things to not over analyze like I tend to when stressed.
This past weekend my mom and I put the SlowStar Juicer to the test again! WHY? Because it's STRAWBERRY Season! Woot!
This juice you see here is Strawberry, Pineapple, and Kiwi Fruit! It was very tasty!
This week I will continue with the juices, smoothies, and salads for the most part. I can see myself doing this - or at least - aiming for the major of my meals planning around these items - throughout the summer months into the fall.
It's mostly back-to-the basics while trying to detox a bit and shed a few in the meantime.
This one you see here is iceberg lettuce (which I realize has the least nutritional value of any of the lettuces but I like the CRUNCH), a few leafy greens and spring mix are in there too...you can't see them but I have carrots and cherry tomatoes in there - PLUS - nutritional yeast, hemp seeds, corn strips, topped with Vegan Ranch Dressing, and smoked paprika.
Over the weekend we stopped by a family restaurant that has the best salad bar in the county and I piled up. They have a California French that happens to be vegan...so I usually go with that. We also stopped at a Variety Buffet yesterday and I had salad, corn, brussels sprouts, rice, and fruit!
