Beet Juice with Jalapeņo = Yuck
Wednesday, January 02, 2013
Juicing was a lot more difficult today. I think a lot of it is psychological though, because I feel like I should be eating more. I do not feel hungry though, which is odd. I also haven't had any cravings, which is extremely odd for me. Normally, every day around 3-4pm I have horrible cravings for chocolate.
One of the juice recipes I tried today was a lousy mess. It had 3 beets, 1 jalapeņo, 1 lime, 1-1/2 cups of spinach, and 12 red radishes. I couldn't drink it, because it was entirely too spicy. My husband drank all of his though. I decided to eat 1/2 green pepper, some grape tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, blueberries, and blackberries instead. I was tempted to dip the veggies in something, but I decided against it.
I have noticed that this experience is teaching me to love the taste of veggies. I usually love veggies way more than my husband anyways and have only met one I do not like (celery). This is sad, but normally I am just too lazy to cut them up. I guess in the past it has been easier just to go through a drive-thru.
I am up way too late. We have to get up early tomorrow to go to the school so my husband can speak to an advisor. My plan is to get up before we leave to run on the elliptical. It is easier for me to workout in the morning, because I am too tired to care that I'm tired. :)
Alright, I'm off. Good night!
