(or as the online slang dictionary describes it: "hippie-esque; "all-natural". Refers to the crunch of granola, which (as goes the stereotype) hippies are likely to eat.")
We've tried many times to go crunchy.
The Mexican has been a great sport when it comes to me dabbling in my health food escapades.
First we went gluten free. (expensive)
Then we incorporated whole foods. (I had tons of time on my hands because I made everything from scratch. Nothing processed, from a can or a box!)
Slowly we started leaving out meat, and were for the most part vegetarian. (hard to do when your hubby prefers chorizo over Soy-Rizo)
Lastly, we tried to switch completely over to "raw food" (extremely sore jaws due to chewing up all those raw fruits and veggies).
It has been quite an interesting journey! Expensive, time consuming, and messy!
My hubby is usually all for it the first week then I get strange looks accompanied with a "What's this? This taste like cardboard!"
(Umm, hello? Do you not recall me talking your ears off about our new health food journey to which
Slowly but surely we have drifted back into old habits and a box of pop-tarts sits in our pantry as I write this.
Lately I've been feeling run down. I'm sure it's due to stress and the fact I barely have time to eat, so when I do, I pop a frozen taquito (well, more like 3 taquitos) into the microwave. My size doesn't bother me. I know I can be gordita and stylish at the same time. The tired and rundown feeling is a different story.
When our diet consisted of unprocessed foods and more fruits and vegetables than sweets, I felt great. I had tons of energy.
My hubby travels a lot and some days I feel like I'm being held captive at work. I do not have the same amount of time I use to.
Which brings us to my new adventure!
It's time to break out the juicer!
(If you happen to read this hunny, prepare yourself now....)
I'll still be cooking as non processed as I can. After all, I have to make sure my little man is nourished.
My plan is to juice one meal per day and work up from there.
a little a lot addicted to YouTube videos. Juicing videos have been my guilty pleasure for almost a month now. Before drifting off into la-la land, I lay in bed watching them on my phone.
This should be no surprise to my husband. I'm sure he's seen the wheels turning in my head.
him us luck!
