The weather is not cooperating for the longer walks I want to do. We had snow and hail today, although it did let up while we ducked out for a mile and a half with the dogs. I'm longing for better weather. My new bike--the one I didn't ride but once last summer--is calling my name. I pumped up the tires this afternoon and it's ready to go as soon as the skies clear.
The day started off right with a green juice. I decided to forgo the daily egg/toast breakfast and try something new. I was impressed by how the juice was satisfying and how it held me until lunch. I also had noticeably more energy. This may become a regular feature of my day!
This afternoon, since I'm new to juicing, I read a couple of eBooks about it. I downloaded them to Kindle for Mac to read on my computer. The first one was newly published and cost .99 on Amazon. It was hardly more than a pamphlet, and probably took all of five minutes to read. I learned nothing. It had three recipes, a big disappointment. The second one, however, was free! It had lots of good information, I was impressed. The author is Farnoosh Brock. Her website is Prolific Living.
My juicer is a Green Star, which is a dual gear masticating machine. I say I'm new to juicing because, although I bought this machine several years ago, I haven't used it much. It's a great machine though and I can see where I'm going to be juicing daily.
Tomorrow I'll see the nutritionist again. I just started working with her and am looking forward to having her expertise help me sort out all the conflicting information out there. While I'm in town I'll hit the grocery store and fill my cart with veggies!
