Well, yesterday was my first day of "Juicing".
Breakfast was DELICIOUS!!!
Lunch wasn't so good. No, I'm not blaming it on the food but rather on the juicing machine, itself.
I was supposed to have 3 heads of broccoli, 2 pears and 2 stalks of celery, right? Well, I started with the 3 heads of broccoli. While the pulp container was almost full, when finished, I might have had 1/2 cup of juice? And, the pulp was VERY wet.
Soooo, as per internet instructions, I scooped up the pulp to pass it through, once again. It jammed it! What a mess!!! Gritty broccoli stuff all over!!! And I'm thinking, "Gosh! What a waste of good broccoli!!!"
When I did the 2 pears, I only got 1 tablespoon of juice... which didn't make sense at all!
Soooo, drank my cup of juice and when I cleaned up the machine, I saw a lot of pear juice had pooled INSIDE one of the parts of the machine!
Afternoon, I ate an apple - I was STARVED!
Supper time, I eyed the machine and thought, "No, I'm too hungry and this machine isn't doing the trick for me. Let's have a salad."
Soooo, I ate a big salad and brought 3 carrots upstairs with me, to munch in front of our TV.
And peace was restored, within Rosa's soul and belly! :-)
