I have never been accused of being limited when it comes to food. I like a wide variety and try to continually come up with new and different taste treats. From Crubeens (Pigs Feet) to Rocky Mountain Oysters (Bulls Testicles) to any flavor of Cheesecake and everything in between! I actually have never tasted anything I haven't liked. That said, my husband and I generally go on some kind of a fairly austere diet in January. We have done Paleo, Vegan, South Beach, and many others. It doesn't always last all month, but we usually go 2 or 3 weeks. This year we decided to do a 4-day Juice Fast to kick-start the year. My neighbor and good friend, Lori Itule, once again loaned me her Dad's heavy-duty Champion brand (circa 1950's) Juicer and on January 2 we began. This is a quality piece of equipment and makes Juicing easy.

The coconut butter is to oil the shaft of the Juicer before assembling.
|We both like this one for breakfast |
as it was very bright, refreshing and
almost gave you a little buzz, like coffee.
