Just one blog post ago, I talked about how much I wanted to get a juicer. I posted my entry to Facebook as usual, and BAM! JUICER!! Not to mention a bunch of helpful info from Lacy, whom I mentioned in my previous post as well.
And thanks to the overflowing generosity and kindness of my childhood friend Kristen whom I've known since our Hamshire-Fannett middle school choir days, I have been blessed with a FANTASTIC Breville Juice Fountain Elite!! Kristen just happened to have one that she was itching to get rid of, so she handed it over to me for the keeping. You guys just DO NOT understand how happy I am! I am beyond relieved also because this will truly help me financially this month! If you're reading this Kristen, words cannot express how thankful I am to you!!!!!!
I made two batches of juice tonight. The one I had for dinner tonight was called "Mean Green Juice." The recipe called for 1 cucumber, 2 apples, 4 stalks of celery, 6-8 kale leaves, and a tablespoon of ginger. I was able to find some fantastic 50 oz glass pitchers at Ross tonight, so I decided to double up the recipe so I'd have more juice for tomorrow evening.

So far, I'm feeling fantastic. The mean green juice tastes wonderful, and it made me full! I can't wait to get this going. Cheers to generous and helpful people and to healthier AND tinier pants!
