Works For Me Wednesday: Juicer + Baby= No Waste


Calvin found a juicer for me off of Craigslist last week for $15!  I had been wishing for one for quite awhile, but definitely didn’t want to pay full price for one. I had been stalking Craigslist, waiting for one that was located near us, for a low price.  Finally, a good one appeared!

I was so excited when he brought it home, and we got to try it out for the first time!  We jumped right in to making a concoction of fruits and vegetables, and then mixed it with some organic teas.  (Forget Odwalla!) :)  
Of course, once we make our fresh juice, there is pulp left behind.  Not wanting to waste it, I decided to mix it in with baby food.  Since Gen is getting older, I’m not making the large batches of baby food like I used to.  (She can now eat so much of what we eat.)  But some hard-to-chew/swallow fruits and veggies still present a difficulty for her, so we steam, mash, etc.  I found that the puree from the juicer is perfect to mix with her morning cereal, or mixing with yogurt.  She loves it, and it’s basically “free” baby food!  (Carrot/Raspberry/Orange multigrain cereal, anyone?)  It works for me!
