Strawberries!

Picked Tuesday, bought Wednesday exactly zero metres from the field at Strawberry Fields Granite Belt, eaten Thursday with ice cream and flourless chocolate cake and shared with family. Even though I was feeling sick on Wednesday, I bought a strawberry smoothie as well. It was the best I’ve ever had. Ever.

You can pick your own for $12/kilo, buy first grade for $12/kilo or buy second grade for $8/kilo. I bought 2 kilos of second grades (a bit over 4 pounds) and froze half for smoothies.

Needless to say: Yum.

Big Yum Strawberries just washed and ready for eating.

JUICE!

Love it.

At the moment, I’m drinking about 1/2 a litre of this stuff each day.

Enjoying beetroot, orange, lemon, carrot and apple.

Despite, when disassembled, looking like something from an Austen Power’s film (one receipt for a Swedish Penis Enlarger…), I love my juicer. It also makes pasta, ice cream and nut butter and is the slow, but good kind of juicer that keeps as much of the goodness in tact as possible.

Again: Love it.

I usually try to put something green in my juices. It’s amazing how you don’t taste celery, spinach, broccoli or kale when it’s whizzed up with apple or orange juice. I also do a sneaky and juice my carrots first, so in the fiber/ cast offs container, I get grated carrot which I then stick into salads. I did that yesterday with some of the beetroot as well. You can always add a couple of spoons of juice back into it if you want the extra liquid.

Colour = healthy!

 

No, not a Swedish penis enlarger

 

 

 

 

 

 

Perfect with poached eggs or on its own.

 

Easy to clean up

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rawsome.
