Today started my first attempt at juicing! As I near the end of my first day I am not feeling 100% but not bad either. What I am beginning to like about juicing is the prework. The juicer that I am using has a small feed chute so I have to take the time to chop everything up prior to juicing it. Taking time to enjoy my meals as I like to think. This mornings first drink was rather lovely, pictured above, it was:

3 carrots
1 green apple
1” piece of ginger

Because of the carrots the whole thing came out with a rather orange color but it was mighty, mighty tasty. The hardest part, so far, about juicing is my intense craving for solid food. Earlier today my boyfriend made a pizza for lunch and I wanted to take a bite so badly but I resisted. I’m learning that juicing is more than just detox, it’s also a lesson in self control.

Today I put together my garden and planted a bundle of seedings that I bought a week ago. Hopefully in the next few days I can start to plant more things and get the ball rolling on this garden stuff!
