Simple is good, just add water. Here I made fresh carrot juice using just a handful of carrots. I didn’t juice a full cup worth of carrots because I wanted to leave room to add water. The reason for adding water is that fresh veggies and fruits can be high in natural sugars. Changing the form from a veggie to a juice you’re 1. Consuming more of the veggie and 2. Getting a higher dose of the natural sugars but without the fiber and other parts of the carrots that would balance it out normally. Cutting or diluting the juice with water allows your body to manage the concentration of sugars better.
Juice prep: It’s easier for me to juice in the morning if I prep ahead the night before. I wash( see my belly highlight for my 3 ingredient homemade veggie wash recipe ) and cut my fruits/veggies then store in a zip lock bag in the fridge. The next morning all i have to do is put the pieces in the juicer and enjoy. PICTURED ABOVE: Here I have carrot, apples, spinach and ginger. I like keeping it under 4 ingredients. TMI: I’m working on getting back in shape so I’m juicing instead of doing smoothies (bc I don’t know how to act with my smoothies and they get out of controlquickly ) at the moment.

Zahra was reading book 1 of the “ We Read” sight word book series when she, unprompted, stated “her hair looks like mine”. Go follow @123weread to get more updates as we prep for launch of the first sight word books to feature African American characters and fill the diversity gap in early childhood literature
For the last couple years I’ve been building the first set of sight word books(for readers ages 2-5 ) that feature African American characters. I just launched my websites landing page so people can keep up as things develop. Go to www.123WeRead.com to register Also follow us on ig and Facebook: @123weread Links in bio
This one was tough. There were some good guesses -Farro -pine nuts. wheat 🌾👀 and... my personal fave.. hood AF guesses -sunflower seeds💅🏾 but this food is called Oat Groat. It’s the raw form of oatmeal. You probably are used to seeing this as rolled oats it appears in the second photo (Some of y’all just swipe to last photo for familiar version 😬 ). Rolled oats are just a more processed (steamed and flattened ) version and cook quicker. Thanks for playing... @missanissha @ra .kale @sd3ham @moy_x3 @penofrage till next time😘💋🥰
