10. My produce never goes to waste anymore
9. No cooking, baking, stirring, or waiting. Just slice, juice, and drink (well, and clean)
8. Extra veggies, extra veggies, extra veggies – for both me and my spouse
7. My dog likes the scraps (dry pulp) mixed in with her meal
6. I feel clean and healthy and energized
5. The machine also makes baby food, nut butters, and pasta
4. Studies show juicing helps prevents disease
3. Juicing offers a great source of enzymes which are often destroyed by heat in cooked foods
2. It is the only way I’ll incorporate beets into my diet
1. Homemade food is the best. Hands down.
I must admit I was nervous about buying a juicer. They aren’t cheap (around $200 for a good one) and I was afraid I’d find juicing too inconvenient, resulting in a new nice appliance simply gathering dust in the corner of the kitchen. But I can’t emphasize enough how much I love it!
Have you read the book Skinny Female Dog yet? (That’s not the real title, but I don’t like to cuss on blogs.) I laughed my way through it with advice like “All carbs are not created equal. There are two types: simple and complex. Simple carbohydrates suck and are as nutritionally beneficial as toilet paper.” The authors’ big tip throughout the book was to “use your head” when you make choices about eating. They are proponents of no meat and no dairy. I’m of the mindset that I need a little of those food groups for a well-balanced diet (my head says there’s something not quite right about a replacing meat and dairy with soymilk, soy “cheese,” soy “meat,” etc. – BUT that’s just me. The book has some great info in there and is worth the read.)
Moving on, the point I’m trying to make is that I visited the authors’ website the other day. Watch their Video Interview. I loved it. It took one of the author’s seven years to transform her eating habits. The other one – ten years. Their message is so clear and true: the goal is to eat well and do the best you can, but no one is perfect. It’s takes time to change your diet. Taste buds need to be retrained. Moving towards healthier foods is a progression. You give up what you can and don’t beat yourself up when you eat something less than ideal.
