Apologies

Guys, I’m really sorry about my photography skills.  To begin with, I am not a super photographer and I don’t have a fancy camera.  The only camera I have is attached to my phone.  Although it’s a good phone camera, it is not a great camera camera. I do have Photoshop CS5 though so there is hope for us. Shall we look back on all my terrible attempts at photography with the hope that I can improve? Let’s.

What a delicious angle!

Who needs to be able to read the words anyway? It’s not like they are the entire point of this post.

Love the washed out background. Avant garde!

Just disgusting.

The inside joke is that I didn’t want you to be able to actually see the lamp.

Thanks for bearing with me.  Maybe this will get better soon. I’m trying!

Juicy

Let’s talk about this new juicing trend. Yes, I watched Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. I am a member of Join the Reboot. I own a juicer. All of these things happened months ago, nearly a year. Guess what? I never tried the cleanse until yesterday.

My sister and I broke out my never used juicer and got to slicing, dicing and juicing. We got new bottles to hold a day’s worth of juice. We were all prepared.

We prepped for the whole day the night before. We were feeling great!

I woke yesterday feeling amazing. I was ready to begin my new life as a cleansed person. I knew it would be a tough three days, but I felt I could do it. (Who needs the one week of preparing your body? Not this girl) The breakfast juice was pretty good. I could do this.

The midmorning juice was tolerable. Still in this.

Then I got very comfortable and took a nap. Seems irrelevant, but when I awoke my sister told me she got half way through her lunch juice and couldn’t take it. I tried the mid afternoon juice and it was the most disgusting thing I’ve ever consumed. I gave the dinner juice a shot and it was not terrible, but not delicious. Not even close. I ashamed to say it but…

We went to Chipotle.

Then we decided that the combined $120 we spent on produce could not go to waste. We bought a stockpot and cooked up a modified version of the cleanse. I’m basically going vegan and I’m fairly certain she’s just going to do whatever the hell she wants.

Ok, I shouldn’t be so hard on her. She did make us our breakfast juices today.

It tastes pretty ok. The only thing I can’t say I love is the (for lack of a better term) gaminess of the produce. It tastes how that department in the grocery store smells and I’m not a fan. I’m considering stevia as a possible resolution.

Lunch today is a meat and dairy free salad. A big one. A delicious one. Dinner is perhaps going to be soup made from our excessive amount of produce.
