This morning I am grateful for fresh squeezed orange juice--the oranges are from our local Farmer's Market. The color is so bright and cheery, and the taste sweet on the tongue, reviving the soul. I use an old time juicer--you know the glass kind your Grandma used? It is so pleasing to look at, and... Sign in to see full entry.

I drink my veggie juice first, then hand over the chocolate and nobody dies

It's all about balance really. It's not hard to eat healthy food. First I drink the green slimy veggie juice because I have to, then I reach for the good stuff--chocolate. And not just any chocolate mind you; I like expensive, dark chocolate when I can afford it, which is never. I love dark, dark,... Sign in to see full entry.
