Vegan MoFo day 1

Vegetables ready for the juicer

Fall has made it to San Antonio at last, at least for today that is. It was so great to have the windows open this morning and to spend the day outside. It’s such a relief to actually feel a breeze especially after we suffered through a really, really hot summer. I started my morning…

Mushrooms and green juice

Texas mushrooms

It’s no secret that I love mushrooms, they are one of my favorite foods. Last week at the farmers market I picked up some really beautiful ones. Just look at that gorgeous bunch of mushrooms. These were so delicious roasted in the oven with a little olive oil. The crispy bits were especially tasty. The…

What I ate today

Last month my Twitter friend @slc_vgn came up with a great idea. She thought it would be fun to blog about what we ate for a day to show people how easy it is to eat vegan. I thought this was a great idea and decided to join in. We randomly chose today, but then…

Juicing, a look back

I started juicing in the early 90’s, my first juicer was a Juiceman Junior and it came with this book. I don’t have the juicer anymore, but I’ve kept the book all these years. It’s fitting that this is the only first edition book I own. When I first started juicing it wasn’t easy to…

Delicious vegetable juice

Yesterday while I was at my Bikram yoga class, I was thinking about the juice I was going to make when I got home. My morning juices are usually greens and fruit, I knew I wanted to try something different.  As I was lying down in savasana, I was dreaming about all the vegetables that…

Mango chard green juice

This morning when I got home after dropping my son off to school I was overcome by the sweet smell of ripe mangoes. I knew I just had to add mango to my morning green juice.  The result was a sweet and fragrant delightful juice. It was the best green juice ever! Mango chard green…

Juicing Brussels sprout leaves

I love my Saturday morning routine. After breakfast I take my dog, my son and his bike and head over to the farmer’s market. I buy my produce then we go to the riverwalk where my son rides his bike and I walk my dog. It’s the perfect way to spend the morning. Since I’m…

Green Juice is the New Coffee

Just a short time ago my Peets coffee was very important to me. I had a cup first thing in the morning every single morning. I loved the whole process of making it. I loved how the fresh whole beans smelled as I ground them. I loved filling my French press with hot water and…

Reflecting on my juice feast

Well I haven’t posted in a while, I’ve been trying to process all that I went through with the juice feast. I had a lot of trouble drinking the recommended 16 cups of juice. I had my ups and downs some days I wanted to quit and others I enjoyed the process. It was difficult…

My juice feast continues

Things are getting to be more difficult. I am the type of person who forgets to eat, if I’m really happy or really sad I don’t eat. This is OK on a diet with solid foods but it is dangerous on a juice fast. First thing in the morning I was drinking a liter of…
