Oh bother, it’s been “One of those days”.
The morning started out wonderful. I made a delicious breakfast juice recipe, which turned out to be my favorite recipe so far! I drank that, and had some scrambled eggs with it. Nom nom. Yum yum.
Then the day started to head South. It is unseasonably warm out (55*F), so all the snow is melting off our roof, our deck, and our street and all the water is running to our backyard and filling our septic tank. So now the sink and the shower fill up if you run the water. As a result, I had to take my stinky self over to our grandparents and use their shower, which has zero water pressure and the shower head is so low I hit my head on it whenever I rinse my hair. >.< But at least I can stand to be around myself now! lol
Then, my grandparents invite us to go out to dinner with them and Mister’s Aunt and Uncle to Ponderosa (buffet restaurant) and I’m trying to start a Juice Fast here in 2 days, so it’s the last place I want to go! We really don’t eat out a lot either. So the though of it is like “Blah.” But it’ll be good to see family!
That wasn’t the only dinner invitation we received. Mister’s best friend’s wife texted me, inviting us over for dinner on Monday evening. Monday evening! I’m starting this thing Monday morning! People are coming out of the woodwork all of a sudden to invite us to eat! It’s going to be hard not eating, because 1) I love food, and 2) I don’t want to offend anyone! But I’m really looking forward to the fellowship! 🙂
Next, my internet decides not to work! Upon countless refreshes of the page and growing more and more frustrated, I finally just shut my computer down and gave up. Well, Mister comes home from getting a load of firewood, and I tell him of my woes. He asks me, “Well is the ‘internet box’ plugged in?” Of course it is, doesn’t he think I checked that! I unplugged the link thing that plugs into the box and plugged it back in, in order to restart the internet, just as he told me to do in the past! Duh! (I tend to start having an attitude when I grow frustrated over something. Maybe I’ll add it to my goals list as something to work on! lol) Well, anyways, I turn both our computers on now, and still no internet. Grumble grumble, grouch grouch. So he goes over to check out the box, and you know what? The internet box wasn’t plugged in to the power outlet on the wall! I checked all the plugs that go into the box, but not the outlet itself. Duuuurrrrrr!
Here it is:
- 1 med. sweet potato (unpeeled)
- 2 D’anjou pears
- 1 red apple (I used Gala, you can use whatever you want. It’s really just preference. I don’t like Red Delicious.)
- 1/2 pint blueberries
I quartered the pears, apple, and sweet potato. Then fed them all into my juicer, and I was amazed at how much juice I got. This recipe made 30 fl. oz! So I’ll drink 16 -20 oz. as a breakfast with a couple ice cubes added, and then the remainder for a midafternoon snack! Yum, I can’t wait to make it again
Blueberries are my favorite fruit in the world. I could eat them by the handful! So I was thrilled to find a recipe that largely featured them!
There isn’t a single green veggie in this recipe (which is probably why I like it so much) so I wouldn’t recommend it as a lunch or dinner juice.
