i bought a juicer!!

Look what i made!! 

i bought a juicer today and i am so excited!! i made this juice for abigale and i as a snack 

2 apples
1/2 lime
a piece of a beet 
a big handful of spinach 

sounds interesting enough right? i was afraid it would be really gross, but it was lovely! Abigale liked it and even said she would drink it every day if i made it for her!! I've been wanting to make juices or green smoothies and now i have the means to do so!! 


  1. Yay! A juicer! I have several friends who are REALLY into juicing. My main worry would be the calories. You're eating super healthy food in a concentrated form, but---I always think that that's a HUGE calorie chunk in a small glass. Like...I think I'd feel a lot fuller eating all that in a salad rather than a glass of juice. Let me know if you think you're feeling sated after the juice vs. actual food consumption.
    P.S. I hope that didn't sound like I was being a downer...hatin' on the juicer.

  2. actually the juice pictured is roughly 70 calories for half the batch. With one batch i filled the 2 glasses and had probably another glass worth left over. it doesnt make me feel full at all. I didnt really get it to loose weight or anything though, i just like juice and so does jesse and i would rather make it so i can juice veggies :) also, i like it because i can juice the stuff i would otherwise not eat (like beets) :)
