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

Swamp Water

I have green juices every day. I usually am drinking them at work too. One of my good friends and fellow teacher, Amy, gets quite grossed out by them. She says it looks like something that was dredged from the bottom of a pond. I do love that girl!

2 apples
5 stalks of celery
1/2 a lime (including zest)
1" slab of pineapple
1 cucumber, unpeeled
1 large handful of parsley
1 large handful of cilantro
1 large handful of spinach
*you can also choose to make a batch of swamp cubes rather than juice the parsley, cilantro, and spinach 
5-6 romaine leaves
5-6 kale leaves 
1/2 bulb of fennel

The juice you just made
1 banana
1/2 of a Haas avocado
2 oz of wheatgrass juice, fresh or frozen
2 teaspoons of Sun Is Shining
Blend quickly

*If you are using Swamp Cubes, put 4 of those in the blender instead of juicing the cilantro, parsley, and spinach.

If it seems too thick for you, gently blend in some water.

Store in glass mason jars. It will fit in a quart jar or 2 pint jars.
This makes enough for 2 1-pint servings.
