I just finished watching the documentary Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead. Great film. I joined their site and while it isn't recommended to juice feast (or reboot according to them) while breastfeeding, I am going to do a combo of juices and smoothies. The cost of juice feasting is out of my budget. I can stretch smoothies much farther. There won't be much of a detox for me as we drink juices and smoothies daily. I've found that I can buy a lot of organic carrots from Costco for 12 bucks and that makes about 2 juices a day for 6 days. Not bad! But I'm not a big fan of the sweet juices. I like em mean and green! We've been getting celery and cukes from Costco and haven't shopped at Fred Meyers because it is just so expensive. So I haven't been getting my KALE and I dearly miss it. I am going to have to go pick up some ginger though, that is another staple that is cheap and goes a along way. I am learning how to get the most bang for our buck. We have a lot of mouths to feed, we just had Hanna and Ollie for a whole week. I spent 150bucks at Costco and within one week, it was all gone.
One of the obstacles I face particularly when I try to just stock healthy food in the house is Oliver complains that there isn't enough food and is hungry all the time. He even *gasps* wants me to buy meat for the house and I'm just flat out refusing to. I did however pick him up Dr. Praegers Veggie Burgers from Costco. If you haven't tried them, I highly recommend them. Very very tasty. Ok I'm just rambling now. Connor is blissfully napping and I'm sitting here staring at my stats homework. I'm really at a loss. I've read and reread and watched all the tutorials and my brain refuses to grasp it.
So to wrap this up, I am going to get back to blogging everyday. Connor is getting older and really noticing our food and I want to send him the right message.
