I woke up very early yesterday morning. I don’t know if it was because it was raining, or because my pain medication wore off (had to go to the doctor late last week, but I’m fine, don’t worry). I ended up making breakfast at 5:30 a.m., then did two loads of laundry, and proceeded to watch the documentary “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” – which I totally recommend. It’s on Netflix and is about this man who decides to only eat juiced fruits and veggies to lose weight and get healthier. It’s amazing how a simple change can make such a difference. We eat such processed and bad food that if we just took the time to eat fresh fruits and veggies, we’d be much, much healthier.
So by 9 a.m., I was both drawn in by this film, as well as craving fruits and veggies. That’s how I found myself wandering through the rain for a 10 minute walk to the Dover Natural Marketplace.
Yes, I make awkward faces when I take selfies.
However, the ladies at the store were very kind and even though their juicer was down, they were still able to puree some kale, spinach, pineapple, apple, and orange for me as a mid-morning snack (a.k.a. breakfast number two).
It was so good. I promise, there’s nothing scary about these. It’s just fruits and veggies, and to be honest, it just tastes like a smoothie. No harm in getting some early morning exercise with a walk, and then enjoying an added dose of vitamins.
Next time I’ll tell you all about their bulk spice section. I could get lost in there for hours.
