I have always heard and read that you should drink the juice right after you have juiced it. Well, the other day I read somewhere that you can actually juice enough to last a couple of days in the refrigerator. There is a trick to keeping all the nutrients in it and keeping it fresh though. I'm still not 100% sold on this, but I tried it anyway. I made enough servings for 3 servings. The instructions are to fill a jar up to the very top. So full, that when you put the lid on the jar, juice will pour out from under the lid. That is supposed to get all the air out and keep it fresh. I did exactly that, and this morning it tasted the same as yesterday...yummy! I just wonder if it lost any of it nutrients. What are your thoughts on this?
Oh, check out our cute tomatoes that we got out of our garden. Can you find our heart shaped Roma? The banana pepper and a few of the tomatoes came out of my in-laws' garden. You should have seen the two huge cucumbers that we got from their garden. I don't know why I didn't take a picture of them. They were gone on vacation and we just happened to stop by there to see how her veggies were doing. Now to just figure out what to do with the cucumbers. I'm not a big fan of cucumbers, but love dill pickles. I know....crazy. Maybe I will juice them...hmmmm
Here is another quick product review. I've been on the hunt for a good organic/vegan soap. I read a lot of reviews on Dr. Bronner's magic soap. It had a 5 star review, so I thought I would try it out. My local grocery store (Kroger) just happened to have it and had it on sale when I went Saturday. I bought two scents, the lavender and peppermint. I've tried the lavender the past two days and absolutely love it. It cleans great. It doesn't leave your skin with a film on it and it doesn't leave your skin feeling all oily. I have very sensitive skin and so far this has been a great find for me. If anything changes, I will be sure to let you know. So far, this is my favorite soap!
Well, that's all for today. I hope everyone has a great week!
