About Me

I started this blog to keep track of my kitchen creations. I love cooking and eating. In 2008 I was diagnosed with RA. Food started becoming a huge problem. I needed to find a better way to eat the flavors I love. All the recipes I create are driven by my desire to eat good food that won't create extra pain and inflammation in my internal ecosystem. While the recipes are wholesome, the language is not. I swear. I use the word 'fuck'. A lot! I make no apologies for that. It's just a fair warning. I'm raw and real. Happy cooking! Even happier eating! Cheers! Angie

As I was making this juice this morning and thinking about when this afternoon I would drink it, the song Afternoon Delight popped into my head so I said to myself, "Self, what a great idea for a name!"

2 kiwis peeled
1 orange zested
1 inch round of pineapple
1 mango peeled

Process all the fruit through the juicer.  If you want a thicker drink, this also makes a great smoothie!  I would not recommend adding milk.  If you need to thin it out, use a little water.  And yes!  That is a canning jar glass that you see.  I use canning jars to transport my juice.

I had some extra fruits that I had to use today so I threw them all into the Vitamix with a little flax milk and this is what I got. Wasn't too bad for a throw-together.

2 bananas
1 mango, peeled
1-inch thick slice of pineapple, peeled
5 medjool dates, pitted
1 orange, peeled
1/4 - 1/2 cup of flax, hemp, or almond milk
ice (optional)

Put all the fruit in the blender. Let it mix until all the fruit is incorporated. Add some milk just to thin it out. Once it's the consistency that you want, you some ice to the running blender to chill it a bit.

1 cup of almond, flax, or hemp milk
2 bananas
1 packet of Sambazon frozen acai berries
All the tops (stems and leaves) from one raw beet
1 heaping teaspoon of maqui powder
1 heaping teaspoon of maca powder

Blend thoroughly.  You can add ice to make it colder if you like.  It has a light chocolate flavor.

1 orange zested
2 large carrots

Process through the juicer.
