Eating Green, Drinking Green not for St. Patty's Day

Hey Mikey she likes it. She really really likes it.

I found this simple easy recipe for a pesto pasta sauce from La Jolla Mom.

I did make a minor adjustment and used spinach instead.


2 cups Kale or Spinach

1 clove garlic

1/4 cup EVOO
good pinch of salt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese.

Blanch the greens for 2 minutes in boiling water.

Place all ingedients in food processor and voila.

The girls loved it and ate it. They had no idea that they were getting their greens.

Every morning I have one of these lovelies.

It 's called the Life Force Energy Elixir by Natalia Rose. It's from the book that I finished reading.


1 large beet

2 celery stalks

1 lemon

2 apples

6-8 Kale leaves

Absolutlely DELISH. I haven't had to drink my coffee or tea. This is a great energy booster. I tell you I look forward to one of these every morning. I lurve my juicer. I have never loved a kitchen appliance before. EVER. It's worth every penny. I just want to have every one come over and I can make juices for everyone. Just like that informercial The Bullet. You know where everyone sits around the island while the host whips up recipes. I want to do that. Seriously.

Another recipe of something I whipped up with what I had in the fridge.


3 carrots

2 apples



I made this in the middle of the afternoon. I needed that picker upper and this did the trick.

This is what makes me happy now. Crazy, but I am hooked.
