Day 9,458,213 of Juicing

*I typed this yesterday, but was having problems uploading pics*

Yey!  Another juicing post!  Just keeping you updated.  Below is a picture of our Peach Pie recipe, which I got from  I just wanted you to see how much pulp/juice is rendered from 3 sweet potatoes (peeled), 2 granny smith apples (cored), and 4 peaches (de-pitted).

So it's actually day 6 of juicing...sweet mango feels like I have been doing this for months!  Last night I had one of "the dreams"...

For those of you who have gone through a liquid stage of preop, you know of what I speak.  The dream where you find yourself eating the most delicious crappy food ever, and get that impending feeling of doom that your liver will be fatty and you are ruining everything...but the food is so good you just don't care? 

Yes.   That dream.

The location:  And all-you-can-eat buffet (we aren't allowed at such places of beautifullness bc Heather thinks they are "bad for you" or something like that)

The players:  Heather, my friend Travis, and ME

Travis and I this summer when he came to visit from Kansas

Heather and Travis and I are at the buffet.  We go through the line.  We get some food.  They eat all their food and say "Man, I am still hungry".  I say "'s a can go back as many times as you need".  They say "Waaaaaaat?"

So we go back through the line, and I am helping myself to little chicken taquitos and little mini pepperoni pizza's...


Heather and I this weekend.  Mmmmmm....juice.


  1. The peach pie juice looks like it might actually taste good?

    You're a stronger woman than I am. I need to chew.

  2. Looks pretty good actually. Hang in there!

  3. well, you're both still smiling so it must not be that bad, right? so not looking forward to this weekend but reading your posts will help me get through it (because you are my hero!).
    Hang in there.

  4. Jess & I have been talking about getting a juicing your posts are tempting me.

  5. lots of nutrients in the pulp...
    if you continue to juice, you may want to look into a blendtec...better than vitamix in my opinion
    it liquifies everything! (they are around $400+)
    an avacado pit, PULVERIZED...
    it makes the juice kinda 'thick' but you are getting every bit of nutrients in the fruit and veggies!
    you can make soup (it even heats it) right in the cream, almond milk, peanut's GREAT!
