Juicy Fruit (and Veggies, too!)

Posted by Heather at Thursday, December 15, 2011
Shhh! Don't tell the Katy she's drinking her veggies!

Ted's parents gave me a Jack LaLanne's Power Juicer for my birthday this year. A slightly strange gift, I acknowledge. However, I actually really wanted one (even if it seems like one more appliance to collect dust on the shelf).

My parents have been juicing for awhile now and when we were visiting once, my dad made a juice consisting of veggies and Katy gulped it down and asked for seconds. SOO.... I was hooked- not so much for me, but for Little-Miss-I-Don't-Like-To-Eat-Veggies. We went to the store and stocked up on fruits and veggies- oranges, apples, cucumbers, carrots, pineapple, mango, grapes and celery. We juiced up a concoction of cucumber, apple, carrot and oranges. I handed Katy a cup full of juice and she gulped it down- veggies and all! Hmmm... I could get used to this veggie consumption! Juicing your own fruits and veggies sure beats all that talk about arsenic in manufactured apple juice, don't you think?!

Thank you for the birthday gift Mom and Dad Jones- we're putting it to good use!
