The cost of junk food
"I don't think I can juice everyday because fruits and veggies are very expensive."
That's what I hear and what I thought. Here's the math: Juicing works out to about $30.00-$40.00 per week per individual. Sounds like a lot. It is, but when you compare to your other way of eating, it is actually a big savings. When I worked in the big bank in Toronto my day usually started with a bowl of cereal, then on the way to the GO Train (our commuter service in Ontario) I would down a medium coffee and a bagel before I got to work. Even if I packed a lunch I would still do a coffee run at least twice per work day and another on the way home. Before I even got home to dinner with my family my daily food budget had already surpassed $12.00. That's $60.00 per week. Then you calculate your evening consumption and you have an average of $100.00 per week for one person. I know that's a bit on the general side but I'm certain that if you are reading this in your cubical at the office you are probably holding your second coffee of the day as we speak, right? Your coffee alone costs you $6.00 a day, if you are not a Starbucks regular, and that is $30.00 a week all by itself.
I don't need to go into the specific benefits of veggie and fruit juice, but one of the big ones is liberation from coffee/tea. So on that point alone it pays for itself.
A good juice mix with a dash of protein (powder/iron) is a great source of energy and sharpness like no other meal. You will not feel like taking a nap in the afternoon, you will feel like moving forward.
A great feeling.

The Pine Tree Painter.
How did I become known as the Pine Tree Painter? You could say I paint a lot of Pine Trees, that would be true. I paint a lot of other things too, but Pine Trees, Spruce Trees, Birch and others seem to be a continuous string in what i do. I just like the way they stand there like a custodian of the land. or a greeter to nature. So, I continue down the path with the Pine Tree Painter name on my head, It's ok.
