I have a *juicy* infographic for you today.
I am a big fan of juicing. I don’t do it that much at home anymore, but I used to use my Breville constantly when I lived out in CA.
Now I tend to buy my juices, but if you have the time and the space for a juicer I’d highly recommend it.
Since moving into my second trimester, I’ve had a lot of trouble with sloooooowwwww digestion and bloating. I don’t like to skip out on the veggies so I try to get them in with juice if I’m not feeling so hot.
When Macy’s sent me an infographic they made about the benefits of juicing I thought it was good timing to post it!
What’s your favorite juice recipe? I love green juices – kale, celery, cucumber, maybe 1/2 an apple, some lemon, and ginger. Yum.

The last weekend in October Bobby and I went down to NJ to visit my family. My dad sent us back with a late birthday present of CSA meat. Of course I forgot to snap a picture of the delicious chili that I made with it, but here is the simple recipe – based on this primal chili from The Grok Pot (my dad’s suggestion).
Paleo/Primal Crock Pot Chili
- 1 pound grass fed organic ground beef
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup leftover pasta sauce
- 1 14 oz. can chopped tomatoes (I try to make sure I get mine from Eden foods or other organic companies that don’t have BPA in the cans)
- ~1 cup leftover veggies (from Chinese food the night before) (optional)
- 1-2 tiny Thai peppers (optional; you can just add more chili flakes if you don’t have hot peppers)

This morning I was really craving French toast.
I had some delicious bread from Eataly, some farmers’ market eggs to use up, and some leftover organic milk from when I made yogurt last week. (Note to self: must make yogurt again!)
I actually made this same recipe a few days ago, and it was so good that it merited a repeat.
The Simplest Easiest French Toast
- Stale bread (or not stale, but this is great for using up stale bread)
- 1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
- 3 eggs
Mix the milk and eggs together. Soak the bread in the mixture for at least 5 minutes on each side.
Heat the butter or ghee in a pan. With heat on low, cook the soaked bread (poor any extra mixture that didn’t soak in right on top of the slices).
