First Juicing

Last night was taco night at T's. And yes, I fell off the no-dairy wagon and had cheese on my taco! I'll start back on my no dairy fast on Monday. Promise!

We finally used his new juicer, a powerful Breville Elite (mine arrives on Monday). It was a lot of fun! We made a spinach, carrot, apple, cucumber, celery, ginger juice that was delicious! Man, vegetables never tasted so good! I woke up this morning feeling clearheaded and refreshed. Good stuff!

The Breville Elite has a huge 3" opening so you really don't need to cut up average size fruits and vegetables. We stuffed a whole head of celery right into the machine. Even juiced 3 carrots with the greens and all - at once. I highly recommend this 1000 watt juicer. It has two speeds 13,000 & 6000 RPMs so it's super fast!

My kids and I love juicing! We're on a budget and bought a hand-powered auger type juicer, but it works great! I'm trying to find a pattern for a simple Japanese styled handbag you had on your blog quite a while ago, any help finding it?

Hi There! Glad to hear that you and your kids are enjoying the benefits of juicing :)

I have the PDF of the Japanese Knot Bag tutorial. I can email it to you if you'd like. It has pattern pieces that you can cut out. Good luck with the project!

Actually, after a bit of digging around, I found a few blogs with the Japanese Knot Bag patterns. The ones that I saw were all pretty smallish, but I did find someone who broke down the dimensions for the bag, and explained the way to make one about any sized based on the circle base. I ended up using a paper plate for a stencil to make a base, and then laid out the rest of the pattern based on that circle. Worked great. My 3 year old is really happy with his new denim toy bag. Thanks!
