Just over 2 weeks ago, after some positive reinforcement and influence from some girlfriends of mine, I decided to start drinking fresh vegetable and fruit juices. I stocked up on fresh vegetables and fruits and decided to use my immersion blender, just so I could get all the fiber too. My sole intention of drinking green juices was to help to heal my eczema from inside out, and hopefully the goodness will pass on to my breast milk and that will in turn heal Emma’s eczema too.
The ingredients I chose were primarily green, with the occasional orange. I added water or soy milk depending on my mood. The resulting drink is a nutritious, and somewhat filling green smoothie.
On one occasion, however, as I was holding my cup of green smoothie, and carrying Emma at the same time, she quickly grabbed my cup and put it to her mouth. I relented and let her have a taste.
Well, well…surprisingly she loved it and kept asking for more! She drinks the juice and eats the fiber..maybe like 4-5 sips but it’s a healthy and promising start! 🙂
So now, since I have an accidental green juice lover in the house, I make my own organic soy milk from organic soy beans and use it to make the green smoothie. That way, I can be sure there are no preservatives and sugars added to the smoothie for Emma to drink.
Have you had your green juice today? 🙂
