The juicing vs smoothie debate seems to be all anyone is talking about these days. Which is better for you? Which is the best way to get the nutrients from the fresh ingredients? How can you make a bunch of fresh vegetables blending into a liquid form taste good? And so on and so on… I tend to be a neutral party on the subject, bouncing back and forth between smoothies and juicing, but to me its all about the flavor and ingredients.

Juicing was a part of my weekday routine about 3 months ago; I would get up and make my green juice or smoothie every morning to start off my day. There was always bunches of kale, bags of carrots and loads of apples in my fridge and a few other random items that I would decided to throw in the juicer if the mood struck. Seeing as how life and work tend to get in the way of healthy habits , juicing slipped out of my daily routine and the juicer crept back into my cabinet and stayed there.

So this weekend, I am going to sit at home, relax on the couch, knit my dog a sweater and enjoy the remain moments of calm before the holiday season arrives. I will also be eating this apple crisp for every meal, so there’s that.
I have Bloat Coat. There I said it… We all know what I am referring to, even if you haven’t heard that term before (Thanks TMZ). It’s the layer of “bloat” that creeps up after a few days of overindulgence. A few too many glasses of wine here, a few too many second helpings there, or having dessert with every dinner for a week, and voila , it appears. Creeping around your midsection, forcing you to take a deep breath before zipping up your jeans, and demanding a huge sigh as the zipper finally makes it all the way up. I have it…and I’m trying to get rid of it. Read more
