I’m a juice addict

I made Bobby a treat for lunch today. It’s based on some Cuban sandwich that he used to have in Miami a lot.

38 bobby bagel

  • 1 sesame seed bagel, buttered
  • marinated beef (thin thin slices) from Han Kook
  • heirloom tomato slices
  • crunchy pita chips and a crumbled veggie cracker

I made myself a huge juice, which I think tasted just as good. Or better!

39 morning juice cuke

  • 1 large cucumber
  • celery (a little more than pictured)
  • 1/2 granny smith apple
  • 1/2 lemon
  • large knob of ginger

40 big juice

This was my biggest juice yet – it almost overflowed towards the end.

Tonight we’re going over to our cousins’ new place for dinner. They just bought a new place and they’re cooking (salmon). We’re bringing a big raw salad. I think I’ll make one of my favorite raw salads with liquid gold elixir.

This morning we went to the farmers’ market towards the end – and got 5 pounds of heirloom tomatoes for $1/pound. We also got some grapes ($1/pound). The farmers’ market is really beautiful, but in general it’s overpriced. In general, it’s more expensive than Whole Foods. I only buy things when I can get a deal towards the closing of the market. It’s frustrating; I want to support local farmers directly, but it’s easier and cheaper to just go to Whole Foods if I want to go oraganic/local.

I also did some yoga this morning – Sadie Nardini’s power half hour. I’m a little sore from all the yoga I’ve been doing this week. It’s a good kind of sore though; it’s almost refreshing.

Word time

  • salmon – first recorded around 1205. this word comes from Old French (salmun), which was from Latin (salmonem). it might have originally meant “leaper” – the word for “to leap” was salire in Latin. it replaced the Old English word læx – which actually kind of stayed around… as lox!

I’m off to read some more. I did just get The Hot Zone (a terrifying true story about ebola, by Richard Preston – I read his other book the other week) from the library and I kind of want to break into that… but I’m already in the middle of about 5 other books so I should probably finish them first. Or not 🙂

  1. That is my absolute favorite juice combo! I love how much juice you can get from cukes and celery. So refreshing.

  2. ohhh that juice is gorge!

    i hate to hear your farmer’s market is overpriced – generally, i save sooo much money going there. hmmm…we gotta find you a better farmers market girl!

  3. It’s interesting to hear your comparison of Whole Foods and farmers market prices. I find that it really depends on which item I’m looking for. Greens, citrus, and items that are in the peak of season are often cheaper at my farmers market, but other things are often cheaper at Whole Foods. I do find that if I commit to buying only sale or inexpensive items, I get a lot more variety at the farmers market than at Whole Foods.

  4. I am learning that I like juice better for a mid-morning ‘snack’ instead of when I first get out of bed. That is a lot of juice!

    Oh, I think you must love books as much–or more–than I do:) I have been wanting a new book to read but haven’t really had time to find one.
