Fat Sick and Nearly Dead. Just two weeks after watching it, James and I happily walked into Bed Bath and Beyond and purchased our first juicer. Five months later I'm still convinced it was the best purchase we've ever made.
The upside is that because of our juicing, the three of us are more healthy than we've ever been. Gone are the days of trying to force feed Jasmine veggies in an attempt to keep her healthy. Now she happily drinks her fruits and veggies and begs for more. Instead of trying to make sure that we're eating veggies for lunch and breakfast, I can juice up our vegetable and fruit intake for the whole day, and get it done in one shot.
The downside to our juicing fest is that it can be a bit costly--enter Farmers Markets. In order to cut the costs we've started finding more inexpensive ways to stock up on our fruits and veggies. Lately we've been hitting up the local Korean grocery store and getting our hull at a reduced cost, however, after our trip to this particular Farmer's Market, I foresee some more early mornings spent perusing the amazing selection of produce at the Matthews Community Farmers Market in our future.
