In Need Of A Pick Me Up? Juice Me Up Baby!
Thursday, December 3rd, 2009 at
After starting work at 0345 am this morning I came home and opened my front door to be greeted by a very sleepy looking cat. .
You see my cat Misty got up with me when my alarm went off at 0230 am this morning … and she then proceeded to scratch the side of the mattress to “get me out of bed”.
Now when I came home and picked her up to give her a cuddle – she felt more like a rag dole. She’s obviously not cut out to be a shift worker from her obvious her lack of energy. Hmmm … then again, who is cut out to be a shift worker?
Now even though I was actually feeling pretty good (I had no disgruntled passengers to deal with today), I knew that I was going to need an Energy Boost to get me through the rest of the afternoon. And this is when I decided to get on my hands and knees and dig out my Juicing Machine from the back of the pantry to make myself a home made Juice! .
As you can see I whipped this one up which contained 1 pear, 2 apples and 2 cups of watermelon – yummo! Drinking a fresh juice is not only fast and easy, but it is an excellent way to give yourself a kick start as it is jam packed with energy boosting vitamins and minerals.
So if you’re having a day when you’re feeling flat and in need of a pick me up – just raid the bottom of your fridge for some fresh fruit and throw it all into a juicer. It’s a great way to use up any old or ’suspect’ fruit, and hey presto – you’ve got yourself an instant Pick Me Up!
P.S. – Now Misty didn’t get to have any of my juice but she did get to have a Purrrfect Healthy Cat Treat
instead. Yikes! There goes a flash of grey fur running through my kitchen at lightening speed …
