Method of Disposal: Gave to Mom for Christmas

I gave these books as gifts, along with some newly purchased ones, to my mother for Christmas.  It is funny that I am just now getting rid of them right as I am starting to develop an interest in healing foods.  I kept my juicing book and bought a juicer, and it has been fabulous.  I love that little Omega.  I am constantly making juice.  I lug it with me when I go to friend’s houses and use it often at home.  The Farmer’s Market really helps keep the costs lower.  I have to use a lot of fruits and vegetables to get the amount of juice I want, but it is absolutely worth it.  The best tasting recipe is apples, pears, and fennel.  Mmmmhmmm.  But I am loving the beet juice too.

These books came from a variety of places, but some were probably mom’s before she moved to Taiwan so they have gone back to their original and rightful home.  She seems to be getting good use out of them and shares plenty of valuable information with me.  I am currently learning about the wonders of wheat grass, seaweed, beets, and other nutrient packed foods.  I think even writing this has made me thirsty.  I am off to make carrot juice!


  1. I ve been juicing too! Lalalove it.

  2. What is your favorite combination? What kind of juicer do you have? Why is it so magical?

  3. Beets, carrots, ginger and/or spinach. I try to stick to 3 diff pieces and only one (max) being a fruit. I have a ge juicer, decent for a starter. My dad made my bro get it for me for xmas.

    I think its magical cause I have tons of more energy and simply feel healthier. Plus my skin is glowy and hair luxurious. :)

    How r u liking it?
