Super-Duper Exciting News!!!

Today was a very interesting and exciting day. It's one of those rare days when everything kinda went nuts but the important stuff aligned itself the way it should have had you constructed it in your dreams.

It didn't just fall into my lap because I made things happen, but it turned out exactly how I wanted it to.

After having seen the movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" I have been juicing religously for about a month. And I go through POUNDS of produce. The pulp usually goes into my kitties food. They love carrots, cabbage, cauliflower and collards and kale. Their coat is getting a nice sheen to it. Right now as I write this particular post, my youngest kitten is munching on red leaf lettuce sitting on the counter still in it's plastic bag from the store. :)

Sigh. I love it that my cats are raw foodists and extremely healthy (my oldest is 18 years this March) but it gets a little annoying sometimes that we eat the same foods 'cause when I sit down to eat my spiralized zucchini noodles with tomato marinara, they want some. They love zucchinis and tomatos.

But I digress.

I got my dream job today starting in a couple of weeks working at a locally owned juice shop that specializes in juice cleanses as their marketing person. Can you believe it? The owner asked me "do you juice"? I'm like, "every day of my life"!!

Do I juice? Ha! Is rice white? Do dogs bark? LOL. DO I JUICE? ;)

I am so excited. What's neat about this opportunity is that I will be going to local businesses trying to get their employees to drink more juices. He's got carrot, spinach, celery, wheatgrass, OJ, smoothies, you name it. He is not a franchise so we can get creative with the recipes, so if you've got a killer recipe we should try then let me know it!

So I am floating right about now and really excited for what 2012 will bring.

One thing I KNOW it will bring and that is JUICE!!!!


  1. Congratulations! You will be an outstanding representative for the business. It is wonderful that you will have a job that is meaningful to you.

  2. I am happy for you, and surprised at the same time! I hope you'll tell us a lot about this, and , please, keep us posted about your cats, too! I have a new kitty, she is so lovely, and is nearly 4 months. I am starting to try to feed her raw, but it's not easy

  3. Super exciting! Congrats. :) I love that OJ is served at your juice cafe, too. When we lived in Chicago, the servers at our local raw food place looked at me funny when I asked if they had fresh OJ. :D

    I recently purchased a juicer and returned it (unopened) because I'd failed to notice that it wasn't good at juicing greens. Do you have a favorite (or two) you might recommend?

    Happy New Year!

  4. Kim, Honestly I bought a real cheap ($30) juicer from Wal-mart and it works great. :)

  5. And thanks everyone for the well-wishes. This is a fun journey to be on.

    Esmee, since juicing and going low fruit, my endometriosis symptoms are GONE as well as PMS. :)

  6. That is awesome! Thanks very much! :-)
