My boys liked:
carrot, raspberry, apple, orange and kiwi juice
My boys didn't like:
carrot, ginger, beetroot leaves, apple, orange, mixed berries and parsley juice (it was brown!)
But then my boys liked:
green grapes, apple, spinach and orange juice
Do you get my point? I'm just chucking in whatever fresh fruit and veggies are available and seeing what happens. I then follow up a dodgy disaster juice with a combo sure to please, so that the boys keep getting on the proverbial horse, so to speak.
But I will ease up a bit now because I remember learning once that we shouldn't mix too many different foods together. Best to keep it simple.
I have been a grumpy girl today. I decided that after spending a pretty penny on my Vitamix, I should follow through with some other healthy lifestyle changes.
Almost 10 years ago I went cold turkey on alcohol, cigarettes, coffee AND meat. But then 4 years ago, when I was expecting my first baby, two of those little vices started sneaking back. First it was the meat. In my 3rd trimester I was getting mighty tired and I simply couldn't be stuffed to cook two meals so on Rick's meaty night, I succumbed. It made me feel sick but I got over that. And now I am eating meat probably once or twice a fortnight on average. I know it is not a lot, but I was happy being a vegetarian (oops, I should say I was a vegaquarian as I did enjoy some fish).

That is how big my coffee was last week!!
So today, being rather foolish, I have gone cold turkey again off full strength coffee. I'm not even having a black tea. Peppermint please.
But boyoboy! I have a screaming headache! Blleeerrrk! And then I thought I shouldn't take any headache tablets as I need to remember how rotten this is making me feel so that perhaps I will keep myself in better check in future.
I'm sipping water and eating nuts. In fact, the nuts are helping me not eat sugar which is my other nasty vice that I have never been able to shake off.
Yes, I am hoping that because I have told you, I will keep myself accountable and not fall off the wagon!
Definitely heading off to Newcastle City Famers' Market this Sunday to stock up on organic produce.
Do you go to market?
