Fresh Squeezed Apple Juice

This morning Luke and I decided to make some fresh squeezed apple juice. It's all part of our trying to eat more natural, healthy food.

Luke had so much fun putting the apples in the juicer and using the plunger to push them down and make juice! I think he was surprised at how sweet and tangy the juice was...nothing like the pasteurized store juice. Noah liked it too. In fact, we all had two cup fulls!

We're headed to the store in a bit to pick out some other healthy fruits and veggies to juice. We might try carrots this time, mixed with our apples. Luke wants to try blueberries too.

I also introduced the boys to almond milk this week. I started by mixing 1/2 almond and 1/2organic cow's milk. Then, they both had it in their cereal and oatmeal...and I had it in my coffee and tea. It was honestly yummy and sweet.

Next on my list to try is a meat substitute. I'm wondering if the boys will notice if I mix 1/2 meat substitute crumbles with 1/2 ground meat? Hmmm...we shall see!

  1. Are you going vegetarian? Or just trying to eat less meat? Be aware of too much soy. Some of the meat crumbles are based on soy.

    It's cute that Luke is getting excited about helping you juice! I've always wanted to try juicing, but it seems so expensive. Are you finding it expensive?
