Juicing Beginner

I’ll start by confessing I know the bare minimum about juicing. What I do know is you put the fruit/veggies in the chute and watch it work it’s magic.

With that said, here’s to my second time juicing.

These are the ingredients I used today: Apple, peach, orange, blueberries, strawberries, carrots and celery we added later.
Insert celery

This machine really is awesome. You put the food in and watch it work. Simple as that!

A friend of mine told me her parents put the pulp through the chute one more time to get any left over juice out. I’m going to try that tomorrow!

Judah approves! He likes to make juice a couple times a day.
Tried feeding the pulp to Ezra. He wasn’t sure of it but ate a few bites!

My verdict is if you haven’t tried juicing, you should! There are so many health benefits to it and it really does give a natural boost of energy throughout the day.

Cinnamon Sweet Potatoes

When you’re in the mood for something sweet but don’t want sugar. Try these coconut oil cinnamon sweet potatoes!

Two large sweet potatoes sliced 1/4 inch thick. 2 tablespoons of softened coconut oil smeared on each slice. And shake what your momma gave ya with as much cinnamon on those potatoes as you like!

Bake for 30 minutes at 400°F. Turn over halfway through.

Helpful tip: Make sure you coat both sides before putting in the oven!

I already ate some before taking this picture fresh out of the oven!

If you try these, comment how you liked them. Enjoy 😋

Quick Tacos

Since I made homemade guacamole today, I decided to pair it with corn shell tacos for dinner tonight! Here’s a quick taco recipe:

Season and brown 1 pound of beef
Warm your corn shells in an iron skillet with a little oil (I used avocado oil)
Finely dice a white onion and cilantro with a pinch of queso fresco crumbles

There you have it! I added some hot sauce to my taco. It was delicious!

Homemade Guacamole 🥑

Are you like me when it comes to avocados? You buy them and eat them with everything or you let them sit until you throw them away.

This time I decided to make guacamole with them instead of throwing them out! I’m so happy I did.

I used 4 ripe avocados, fresh garlic to taste, 1 small onion, cilantro to taste, 2 limes, salt and pepper to taste.

Squeezed the avocados in and took the seeds out
Added all the ingredients and mixed them together while lightly mashing the avocados because I like it chunky like my thighs
Squeezed fresh limes before mixing everything together
Now devouring it with blue corn chips (gluten free)
Store it with the seeds and cover to prevent browning!

If only you could taste it! Oh wait, you can! Make it with those avocados rotting away in your fridge right now! Don’t forget the tacos!
