This morning I made my first juice from 1/4 pineapple, one orange and one mango. It was very good and very satisfying.
I used the pulp from this juice for dinner for my kids. I put boneless, skinless chicken thigh strips in a pan with the pulp, added a couple tablespoons of brown sugar and balsamic vinegar and some Fiesta Lime Mrs. Dash seasoning. It all cooked together very nicely in a bit of olive oil and gave them a wholesome, no salt, no preservatives dinner that was tasty. They loved it!!! We served it over rice. Not the best choice for rices, but I have to use up what I have on hand.
I did notice today that my hair was coming out in an alarming quantity. I have very thin hair to begin with and cannot afford to lose more. So, I determined I would eat a chicken breast in the hopes that the protein would stem the loss. I cooked it with garlic cloves and onions in a bit of olive oil. It was tasty, but I could hardly eat half of it. I'm just not sure I'll be able to eat chicken everyday in an effort to save my hair. So, I may have to consider either a wig or scarves. Once I can get to a healthy weight, adding beans and nuts for protein will be easier to do.
So, I am not sure what will happen with my hair, but for now, if I lose it, that's ok. It will come back. And if a few months with fewer hairs is what it takes, then so be it! I'm loving the juicing. I love being able to eat a salad if I feel the need and I love the freedom of not measuring and weighing my foods. I'm juicing on!!
