Yummy things at home !!

Very rarely does it happen that we have apples left over or that they go bad in our house. I am not really sure what happened but I had almost two full bags of organic apples, some were starting to go bad because let's face it, organic produce just doesn't last as long as "normal" produce.

I decided that I wasn't going to let the rest go to waste and I made a favorite in our house.
Homemade applesauce.
No sugar
No cinnamon
Just plain ol' applesauce.


(Btw made the applesauce in the pressure cooker in 4 minutes took me longer to prep the apples than cook it :) This article is pretty interesting - though I cannot confirm nor deny the validity of this article )

Going organic is costly, but what's the cost if we don't?

I've added so many more fruits and veggies to my diet that I've become even more regular than I was before :)

Everyday I drink one smoothie that contains 2 c spinach, 1 c mango probiotic juice, 1 c blueberries, 1 c mango, and sometimes some raspberries (though it drives me nuts to pick seeds out of my teeth) or strawberries, & 1 T flaxseed.

I usually drink half at 10 and the other half around 2.

I am back on the vitamin regimen and feeling so good. I fall fast asleep and wake up raring to go (even more than before).

It is more work to take care of myself but its worth it! I'm hoping that eating better will help me lose weight but mostly I'm focusing on eating healthy (& it's also amazing how I don't just eat as much because my food actually tastes good!)

Sending love!

Yay, I love this :) I think the more people that are jumping on board, the more encouraging it is. I too am trying to juice atleast twice a day. This way I have approximately 9 fruits and veggies in my system per day! Keep up the good work and please always share :)

And your food actually fills you up as opposed to the cardboard stuff we have been used to eating!
Good for you!
