Juicing Infographic!

Hi guys!

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.

No Ads! And Looking for Sponsors

Good morning and happy Tuesday!

I got really sick of my site loading slowly; apparently it was due to the kind of lame ads I’ve been serving.

I thought long and hard (well, for a good 10 minutes anyway) and you know what – I don’t want to be part of an ad network anyway.

(Not to mention that I make next to nothing on the intrusive ads anyway.)

Instead of running random banner ads, I will be offering sponsorships {details here} – I’m cheap icon wink No Ads! And Looking for Sponsors

If you’re a blogger, a company, or whoever really, and you want to work together let me know.

Right now I’m in the middle of enjoying this Hugh Jass salad:

So I will say bye for now.

How is your Tuesday going?

Super Simple French Toast {Recipe}

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

Ingredients

  • Stale bread (or not stale, but this is great for using up stale bread)
  • 1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
  • 3 eggs
  • Butter/ghee

Directions

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).

Cook for 6-8 minutes per side. I like to keep a lid on the pan for the first half (3-4 minutes) of each side.

Enjoy with butter and syrup!

Note that you could add some cinnamon (either into the egg mixture or just sprinkled on as it’s cooking), but my husband hates cinnamon and I wanted him to eat this, so I left it out.

I can usually have a little more than a third of this recipe for breakfast – about 2.5 or 3 pieces. The next day when I only have 1 or 1.5 slices left (because Bobby also had a third or more), I will have it along with a yogurt.

What is your favorite breakfast?

I love French toast, waffles, pancakes. I won’t ever eat them in a restaurant because the restaurant can’t make them like my dad can. In a restaurant I will get an omelette or an egg platter – pretty hard to mess up eggs (though it has happened).
