Sunday Catnap

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately.  It has been a busy week and a busy weekend (in a good way!).  We had fabulous times with friends, and the one recipe I have ready to blog is kind of in-depth, and I’ve been putting it off.

Also, I took the best nap ever today, and found this on my phone when I woke up:

imageI’m calling that a double catnap.

You probably won’t see much of me this week because I am working a lot of overtime while one of the other therapists is out on vacation.  I definitely have some plans to stop by though–koeksisters recipe coming up soon.

Happy Presidents’ Day tomorrow!

Oh, I’ve been thinking about getting a juicer for, you know, the last fifteen minutes since I finished watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead.  Your thoughts on juicing?  And juicers?  Hopefully I can stumble upon some Long Islander who bought a fancy juicer, never used it, and really wants to sell it to me for less than my left arm.

    Brandon got a juicer two years ago and we loved it but I didnt love how much we spent on groceries. I havent used it in a while but all I have to say is ginger! I loved ginger in every juice I made! We got our juicer from gnc for a decent price

    I watched that documentary too, its inspiring! A wonder how juicing can change your life. I want to look into getting one as well!!

    My friend has one and uses it daily.

    After watching the documentary, I wanted to jump on the juicing bandwagon, too. But do your research, and I think you will choose to stick with your Green Monsters.

    The thing about juicing is that, while it does provide many nutrients that are often missing from the typical American diet, it doesn’t provide enough protein (or possibly fiber) unless you add that to your juice. By juicing (by which I assume you mean doing a cleanse of sorts where one consumes juice as one’s only source of nutrition), you could be depriving your body of one of the most essential things it needs in order to function properly – amino acids only found in animal products or appropriately formulated vegetarian/vegan products. This then causes your body to break down muscle in order to keep functioning – the exact opposite of what would benefit a person most in terms of weight loss and health! As a supplement, please see the referenced WebMD page on juicing’s benefits and risks:

    All that being said, I think adding freshly made juice to any diet is a great way to get vitamins and nutrients quickly and easily.

      Definitely don’t mean doing a cleanse–I don’t believe in them as a means to gain health (too science minded :)) I mean adding juice into our diet! Thanks for writing, though, I always get nervous when I think people want to live only o juice :) I also like having the fiber/full feeling of smoothies :)

    LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Champion juicer….going on 4 years with it. There is nothing like juicing your greens & beets, alike! AND – I do love your Green Monster, too, I just really like knowing my needed nutrients/minerals/vits are being ingested in natural form and not a synthetic supplement. Several great things about the Champion (aside from juicing) it also comes with a blank screen that I can grind my own grains into flour with or run frozen bananas through and Waa-Laa I have banana ice cream! The clean up is a tiny bit time consuming (less with the Champion than with my previous juicer) but the benefits of the juice are worth every minute….and every penny. I save the pulp and make “burgers” with it or add it to pancakes, muffins, etc. Therein, the ‘fiber’ is not wasted. I say GO FOR IT! :)
