We got a juicer this weekend! It’s the Hamilton Beach Big Mouth Juice Extractor. Keep your eyes peeled for a full post about the juicer, juicing 101, and recipes.



And speaking of my new juicer, my friend Melissa (fellow juice enthusiast) created a Pinterest group called Juicy Gossip for us to post all of our juicing recipes. Super excited about this!


Did the Mars Curiosity Rover find a flower on Mars? A new photo taken from the rover definitely looks odd but I’m not sure “flower” is the best word to describe it. It looks more like a mineral deposit to me, like mica or something. What do you think?


Have you ever wanted to combine crafting and fitness? Check out this online workshop, Crafting Fitness 2.0, by Jenny Doh. She uses creative instruction to guide participants through their fitness goals and exercises. So cool, right?!


How a sewing machine works:

I could watch that all day.


I love this darling story about finding, and perfecting, a long lost cookie recipe over on NPR’s All Things Considered Lost Recipes Project.

  1. Vitamix vs. Juicing? Sugar content of most juices vs. supplementing w/ whey and drinking more water? Juicing benefits vs. just upping veggie intake?

    1. I think a Vitamix is basically a fancy blender and a juicer extracts juice from fruits and veggies. The other benefit to juicing is that, because the vitamins and antioxidants are in liquid form, they are much easily and quickly absorbed into the body.

  2. Are they high in sugar though? If I’m eating a very limited grain/wheat/dairy diet full of fruit and veggies what benefits am I gaining from juicing? What about the sugar?
