It has been a good day in the neighborhood. Praying for those in the Midwest going through so much snow, and thankful that it is not our turn. I know we will get ours again but for now, I am enjoying a bit of spring on a cloudy day. I love to juice! I love the bright colors and the way it makes me feel better, but I don't like cleaning the machine that often. So I make enough to drink and then fill some canning jars and store them in the freezer. I make sure to leave enough space in the jar to expand when it freezes. The bright green is celery and cucumber and the orange is carrot juice. I like the taste of both but ended up mixing them this time to store easily. Fresh vegetable juice is a wonderful way to help your system absorb nutrients. I use the left over pulp in spaghetti sauce or soups or baked goods. I never eat enough vegetables. I had some organic veggies in the fridge and did not want them to go bad. Since my gall bladder and thyroid removal last year my husband teases me that I am trying to get to heaven before him, one piece at a time. I am working hard to keep what is left behind healthy and vegetable juicing helps give the digestive system a break.
