I started the day off with making my Mid Morning 8oz Juice of Carrot, Celery and Greens before I headed out to church.

I used Celery for Beets, because I had ran out and just used Green Leaf Lettuce for the Greens. I drank the Juice on my way to church and on my way home… and it was really good.

While I was out.. I made it a point to put together my grocery list and hit the Whole Foods and Giants for groceries. At Whole Foods, I picked up the Raw Apple Sauce I ate for lunch.

Mid Afternoon: it’s an 8oz Carrot Juice with Barley Max Powder. But unfortunately, my order has not come in yet… so it’s just Carrot Juice and maybe some Celery and Cucumber.

Dinner menu looks like this: Garden Salad and¬† Minestrone Soup. Looking forward to making dinner. ūüôā

It was sooooo cold in D.C. yesterday and night…. I needed to make something to warm us all up. Mike was feeling sickly still from his flu shot he got the other day, and he wanted some Minestrone Soup.

*Soak Kidney Beans or Garbanzo Beans overnight and rinse and then cook beans. Or use canned Kidney Beans or Garbanzo Beans.
