So today I’ve got a couple fun things for you, but we’ll start off with my very first juicing experience!

My cousin is moving and getting married (so rude… leaving me) but while cleaning out her apartment she gave me her juicer! (as well as a life-time supply of brita filters and Energy Gels – she’s a runner as well). Personally, I’d rather have my cousin, but the juicer is cool too.

The juicer is Breville’s Juice Fountain Compact. It was pretty simple to operate, although I’m pretty sure I’ll have to work on my skills…

My kitchen looked like I’d just mowed the lawn. Things got a little crazy.

My only complaints about the model are 1) things flew up out of the chute before I had a chance to put the food pusher in the top and 2) there were lots of parts to pull apart and clean. Not super when you don’t have a dishwasher, but not horrible. I did enjoy that it sounded like I was flying a space ship or something when I turned it on! Haha it had an intimidating whirring sound.

My first attempt at juicing included basically whatever I had, which included kale, spinach, 1 lemon and 1/2 a large cucumber.

Although it was a bit lemony for me, I actually really liked this! And yes, I held my breath for a second before taking the first sip. I mean, come on, its green.

I’ll definitely be having fun experimenting with this in the future!

 

Next up, a book review! This month’s book for Julie’s Book Club is The Fault in Our Stars by John Green:

The Fault in Our Stars is narrated by Hazel, a sixteen year old cancer patient. Hazel stopped attending school due to her treatments and isolates herself in her family home, knowing that her cancer will be terminal. Her parents force her to attend a support group where she meets and eventually falls in love with Augustus Walters (“Gus”), another cancer patient. Hazel and Gus become very close quickly, although their relationship makes her realize that she’s afraid of anyone getting to close because she knows she’ll just leave them in pain when she passes away.

One thing that I enjoyed about this book is that it doesn’t sugar-coat cancer, it’s descriptive in everything that Hazel has to deal with, however it does so in a somewhat humorous way. Also, you become so invested in the characters that, although the cancer consumes their lives, you see them beyond their illness and watch them learn about themselves, one another, and to love. It’s interesting to read a love-story that you know is doomed from the beginning, but I think part of the reason people enjoy this book so much is because it teaches you to embrace the life that you have now and enjoy each day, rather than focus on what you may or may not have in the future.

I highly recommend reading this book if you get the chance. It went by fairly quickly for me, and although the topic seems depressing, it had a really great message and left me feeling satisfied and very glad that I picked up the book.

 

Have you read this book? What did you think?

 

What do you think about books that deal with the “sad” parts of life?

 

Have you ever tried or made your own green juice?
