Not Quite Composting

Mornings are usually hectic.   Important people running to important meetings.  Click, click, click down the hall with coffee in hand.  Except for me, I drink Green Juice.

(I wish I could tell you that I never get caught up in who or what is important.)  

After the Green Juice is gone, I eat my raw food - bananas, pears, kiwis, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries...(sometimes all of the above)...and throw the peels and dripping napkins into the garbage bin.  However, these days I try to make a little less of a mess.

"Good morning Dr. Pepper!"  (That is the nickname he has given me.)  He always has a big smile when he empties my trash - as if he is happy to be doing me a favor.  I could say he has "special needs," but then, don't we all?  He was excited to show me the plastic necklace around his neck that he got at an amusement park.  "Dr. Pepper, They gave me this.  It's angel wings.  They said it is perfect for me."

Perfect indeed.

P.S.  I bet they only give those out to the important people.

What's in that drink? Looks kind of icky, but I'd be willing to try it. We sometimes buy a green juice called Green Power, or something like that. I was hesitant to try it, but it sure was tasty!

Post some of your recipes for us too lazy to go out and find them. :)

That's funny! Let's see, the drink had the following ingredients: kale, celery, spinach, sprouts, apple (or pear, I can't remember!), and lemon. I always add the lemon juice at the end. It greatly improves the taste! This is the first time I ended up with "green" juice. Usually it turns out orange because I like to add carrots. :)

Girl on Raw, Nice to "see" you back! :) Thanks for commenting!

ok TR, just for you, I'll try some of this. But prob none of my ingredients will be organic--it's my location, can't do anything about it.

Sandi, easy fix, you can get a "Fruit and Vegetable Wash" at the grocery store and a "vegetable" brush. Just soak and scrub. It is better than nothing! Glad you will try. I started with carrot and apple juice and eased my way into the GREEN stuff! :)

None of my ingredients are EVER organic! I live in the Middle East and I have to do baking soda baths most weeks :) Like TR says, better than nothing. :)
