For Christmas, my husband bought me a juicer. I had been dropping serious hints that I wanted one. I had been losing weight slowly and I wanted to amp it up. I also wanted to eat healthier. I really don’t like raw veggies that much, and I can only drink so many green smoothies, so I figured a juicer would be a good direction to go in.

I want to cook so my family can enjoy. I want to cook so my family can be healthy. And I want to do those things without breaking the bank. So, today I start. I made Spinach Manicotti today.
