Back to juicing!

The produce is in. We participate in a local organic produce co-op  as well subscribe to Green B.E.A.N. It is a weekly service that delivers produce to our door. 
I never realize how crowded my counter tops are until I see photos of them.

These are some of my favorite ingredients to juice. Add cukes to the mix and you have the perfect drink. 

It always looks like a green bomb went off in  my kitchen when I juice. 
I love to juice. If it weren't so time consuming to clean everything up, I would juice more. Lately I have been going to a newer grocery store that offers fresh raw fruit juice. Although it's not on the menu, I request green juice every time. Finally, they have been keeping kale, cukes, celery and broccoli in the case. I know I am not the only requesting the green juice, but I like to think I am part of the reason they started doing that.

It's My Most Favorite Time of the Year

Okay, maybe it is just one of my favorite times of the year. The farmers' markets are open. I love it. My family and I went yesterday and came home with some yummy peas, some tasty treats from some raw vendors and gluten free goodies for the kiddos. Of course, I forgot to take pictures.

I did remember to take pictures of our trip to the U Pick It strawberry farm. The strawberries here in Ohio came in about 2 weeks early and they were so red and tasty. It only took 20 minutes to pick 9 full quarts of red ripe berries. I am not sure how many we ate but none of us were hungry when we left. 

Smoothie ready.

So red and juicy!

To be honest, he did most of the picking. 

I only ate one.  
Next week I will remember to take plenty of pictures at our local market.
