Ginger, Lemon, Beets, Oh My...

 

It's vlog time.

Just a little vid on some juice I made the other evening.

It was Deee-licious.

I used to believed that vegans are crazy people.

But, I dont anymore. 

I can really appreciate fruits and veggies...in a juice.  Still not so much in a salad, though.

I wish this video had smell-o-vision.

The  aroma of the fresh ginger is just heavenly. 

Then add the clean crisp aroma of lemon and cucumber...dang that's good.

I spoke of the organic veggies we have available at our local grocery store, or the lack thereof. 

The Rawbrahs gave a little heads up on a co-op in Houston called RawFully Organic.  Someday, I would love to participate.  It is about an hours drive for us, but it would be worth it! 

I am waiting for a time when we become more consistent juicers.  I wouldn't want any of that wonderful bounty to go to waste.

Also, at the end of the video I talked about maybe making some orange/carrot juice the next morning.

Well, I did.  Oh man, anything seems possible with the scent of citrus in the air.

I added a beet to the juice. 

I have read that beets are high in sugar, but I just don't see it.

Now, don't get me wrong.  The juice was good, but I wouldn't consider the flavor of the beet as sweet. 

But no matter, I will continue to try to adapt my taste buds to loving beets because they are so good for you.

What is your take on beets?  Have you ever eaten them raw?  Do you like them?  Would you say they impart an "earthy" flavor? 

Yeah, earthy, that's the word.

I am off to watch our Houston Texans whip some Atlanta Falcon bootie, I hope. 

Have a wonderful, peaceful Sunday and the best week ever!!
