Inspired to Abundance – #4

Amount to spend is $1,000

$250.00 – Omega 8006 Augur Juicer (for butters, leafy greens, etc)
$500.00 – Dyson DC25 Upright Vacuum
$120.00 – Henckels Flatware x 2 ($60 each set)
   $80.00 – KitchenAid 12-Cup Coffee Maker
   $50.00 – Dinnerware x 2 ($25 each set)

I had a little trouble imagining how to spend $1,000, because having that available as extra is almost absurd. However, after careful consideration, I was able to come up with a few things I could stand to replace.

Omega 8006

A slow juicer for making nut/soy butters and juicing leafy greens.

KitchenAid 12-Cup Coffee Maker

Our current Coffee Maker doesn’t always brew the last 1½-2 cups of water. It just refuses.

Dyson DC25 Upright Vacuum

We’ve had our current Dyson for over 6 years. I’d replace it with an upgrade for sure!

Colourful Juice Blend

Yummy fruit, veg & ginger juice-blend

This was the blend of fruit and veg (apples, ginger, yellow beets, carrots, beet stalks, kale) I put through our juicer yesterday. The colours are so cheerful, and the juice itself was gorgeous! I’m super-glad I snapped this pic before it was all over. ♥

Happy Medium Found!

I haven’t had the juicer very long, but from the combinations I’ve toyed with thus far, my fave is ABC: apples, beets & carrots. My Elflings have been really great and willing to sample, even gulp, the glasses of freshly-masticated juices that fly out at 1,100 RPMs. RAWR! But, to be honest, they haven’t always loved the juice. As much as I’m a big fan of beets (there’s something so entertaining and primal to me about  the look of terror-tinged shock on little faces when seeing the pinky-purple end-product the next day), I’ll admit they are a little “earthy” on the palate.

The happy medium I was talking about? Right! More apples! I did a 12 carrot, 3 beet and 3 apple-mix tonight. Massive hit! There was a little extra left, but that didn’t last.

One of my Elflings said: “Mom, I think this is the best ABC Juice ever! An extra apple really made a good difference. It’s delicious!”

Awwwe!
