My son eats fruit like it's going out of style. Last night I bought a bunch more fruit to refill his fruit needs. And then I realized why he was going through so much fruit. It was me! I was eating about the same amount as he was! And then I realized why.

We usually keep fresh fruit (apples, oranges, nectarines) in a big bowl on a shelf on a small wall between our kitchen and our living room. But it's also in sort of a corner. I think it was "out of sight, out of mind" and I wouldn't touch the bowl as often.

Last week, I was trying to conserve even more space (and save fruit from going bad too quickly), so I put the bowl in the refrigerator. Every time I opened that door, the fruit was staring me in the face. I threw in some lemon cucumbers too. Guess what? That bowl was empty in just a few short days.

Sounds simple. Why didn't I think of this sooner?
Please don't look at the frosting jar hiding behind the yogurt (We made cupcakes the other day and this is the extra frosting.)!

Haven't juiced in a long time. *SIGH*

It's not that I don't want's that I don't want to. Does that make sense? My brains tells me to, but my heart says, "nah." I should though. I really should. It's summer and there's some wonderful fruits out there right now.

Maybe if I write about it enough it'll happen?

I have two bags of apples sitting in my kitchen. I bought them to juice. We've been eating them instead.   I don't know why I did't just juice them. I really do love the juice.

Okay...maybe I'm feeling a little bit more like picking up the juicer than I did five minutes ago.

A friend recently sent me a pretty tempting looking picture of a juice she created in her juicer. She even sent the recipe. It was quite green. It had ice in it. As you know, ice makes EVERYTHING delicious! Well...that, and bacon.

I think I'll post the recipe here in hopes of maybe going out and getting some more fruits & veggies to start back juicing again:

1 bunch lacinato kale
1 bunch cilantro
1 bunch parsley
5 granny smith apples
1 pineapple
