When tax returns roll in, people spend money. Fact. Normally, I turn to shoes - this year has been slightly different, I guess you could say that I made a more practical decision - I know what you are thinking No shoes?! Are you feeling alright? Well, honestly aside from the scratchy through and the enormous serving of overwhelmedness that I have sitting on my plate from work, yes I am feeling fine. ha - so I ended up buying a juicer. This has been a long time coming, kind of like a lot of things in life lately... Really! I have been researching juicers, price points, motors, etc for almost over a month now. The one that I want clearly sits in a completely different paycheck echelon - so I went for the economic version - the Breville Juice Fountain Compact - so far I am in love with it.
So, long story short...I thought I would receive it later in the week so I didn't bother buying extra veggies on our weekly grocery shopping extravaganza Monday night - dumb decision? Potentially, but, this did bring me to my greatest discovery of the day: Grower's Direct. Cheap, well kept veggies - honestly what more can a girl ask for! How I did not find this earlier (even with girlfriends poking and prodding me about going for a visit) is beyond me... For a mere $14 I bought enough fruits and greens to last AT LEAST the next 4 days. No bad, eh? I immediately got home and ripped the box open and started juicing. Spinach, ginger, carrots, apples and lemon. D-E-LIOUS! I was slightly nervous prior to my first sip that my concoction was going to be disgusting - or in the words of Sarah, "A-usgusting" - wrong! I can tell that my juicer and I will have a lovely relationship. I gave Spence a small sample of my green drink, aside from being overwhelmed by ginger (PS I LOVE the taste of ginger) he said it was surprisingly good. Now that I have my lovely juicer this means that the mixing experiments can be endless - and - to tell you the truth I am really looking forward to giving a juice cleanse a whirl.
