9 Bobbins Later…

It’s finally time for the binding. Whew! Maybe this thing will finally be finished by the end of the week… Crossing my fingers!
On another note… We bought a juicer. These fruits & veggies above became this juice below. My sister-in-law inspired me. She fixed up some juice for us the last time we were visiting. She likes to keep the green veggies together and the red/orange veggies together. Otherwise if you mix green & orange veggies you end up with brown juice. And that’s not very appetizing!
This juice was made from 1 golden beet, 2 carrots, 2 stalks of celery, 1/3 of a cucumber, a piece of ginger, 1/4 of a lemon, and a yellow apple. The cucumber skin made it a little less orange than normal. All that made 2 glasses of juice. Citrus fruit needs to be peeled because the thick skin can’t go through the juicer. I’ve been saving the leftover pulp and made 6 cups of veggie stock with just few days worth of juicing pulp. I’m getting ready for you, soup season!
After struggling with insomnia and wacky hormones this last year, I’ve come to the conclusion that changing my diet might help. And, it’s always been a challenge to get the recommended daily servings of fruits & veggies. This definitely solves that problem! And it tastes good. One sweet fruit mixed with the veggies takes away quite a bit of that grassy, veggie flavor. It still tastes a little veggie-like, but in a good way.
