Because I am not a wealthy girl, I’ve been quite sensitive to the drastic increase in dairy prices. A half gallon carton of organic milk in my area costs $3.99. And I soon noticed that my favorite smoothie was $2.25 instead of $1.50. I know it’s just $.75, but toward the end of the week $.75 a day added up. (That was more than the cost of a burger or a glass of wine!) This seemed unjust to me, and so I made the decision that I could make my own yogurt, and that would make my smoothies a lot cheaper. When I don’t have time to make my own yogurt, I use Stonyfield Farm’s. Either way, I still save enough to enjoy a glass of wine with friends at the end of the week.
I have a confession; a deep, dark secret my mother has suspected for years: I go out far more than I should. Having an great social life is not something most people complain about, but there is one major consequence to having an active night life; primarily, an inability to be active in your day life. Though I haven’t figured a way to strike a balance between night and day quite yet, I have discovered a wonderful remedy that assists in reviving both my liver and my spirits. Low, the beet, carrot, apple and ginger juice!
