4am & beets

I woke up at 4am and spent the next two hours listening to my husband sniff & snore while lamenting my inability to fall back asleep. At 6am we all got up and I made beet/brussel sprout/apple shots. I have a few things to say about these two statements, I bet you can figure out which one I’m talking about.

  1.  I would suggest not asking me to do anything very difficult today
  2. I’m thinking I may have to skip yoga at 5:30 because I may fall asleep
  3. EVERYONE in Toledo is SICK!
  4. Huge immunity boost, only a few things could make it bigger.
  5. Juiced beets are beautiful
  6. Juiced beets still taste like dirt
  7. Maybe it’s like exercise and if I do it early in the morning I don’t even notice how annoying it is to clean it all up 
  8. Only two brussel sprouts, can’t even taste them.
  9. I warned my husband about the potential effect of uncooked beet juice on white porcelain (It    can be scary if you don’t expect it)
  10. I wonder if I could sneak a nap at work for lunch
  11. I don’t want my husband to be sick in another country


I like all three of the “with friends” games from Zynga on my iPod; Hanging, Scramble and Words, but I cannot add any more “Words” games or I will have to quit my job and play full time. I am TLM0000 if you want to add Hanging or Scramble. I play slowly because I only play on my iPod when I happen to notice it’s my turn.

  1. try using white beets

  2. I had to go back and start from the beginning…because after I heard about your juice, I was worried you had to not go to yoga – because you wouldn’t be able topose AND contain the pooter.@irishis63 do white beets taste better

  3. oops…better explain..contain the pooters which is gas in baby talk!Forgot the S which made it sound possible disgusting….I’ll stop now

  4. @Ninasusan – I am so glad I didn’t read this in a meeting (as I am wont to do) I couldn’t help but laugh.

  5. Have you ever tried the green go-go juice Dr. Oz promotes?  Hubster likes it, I think it’s horrible but it’s supposed to be awesome for your immune system.

  6. @TheEmeraldPixie –  I did not know Dr Oz had one that he recommended.  Is this the one:  Make the breakfast drink that Dr. Oz swears by! This “green drink” is high in fiber, low-calorie and rich in vitamins.Ingredients2 cups spinach2 cups cucumber1 head of celery1/2 inch or teaspoon ginger root1 bunch parsley2 applesJuice of 1 limeJuice of 1/2 lemonDirectionsCombine all ingredients in a blender. This makes approximately 28-30 ounces, or 3-4 servings.

  7. Juiced beets DO taste like dirt.  I don’t think getting up even earlier to drink it would ever mask that.  It’s not something you can sneak by.

  8. I am absolutely certain that I left a comment here yesterday.  I must not have hit submit.  D’oh!Today was my waking up at 4am day.  Ugh.  Odd thing, though, is now I am really wide awake.  3pm will be crash time for me.#9 would be quite startling.  #11 I hope he is well and can stay well while he is away.

  9. Oh and I can’t find Scramble on the Fire or on Facebook.  If I ever do, I’ll look for you.

  10. I think I want a juicer…it would be a great way to get things like brussel sprouts into me cuz like you hate beets, I hate brussel sprouts and broccoli and asparagus….oddly, i love beets lolI just started playing words with friends, i thought I would stink at it and then I kicked my daughters butt. haha. It is addicting tho, but we play like you, when we notice so games can take forever!

  11. @strawberryfieldsgirl – so far I am up to three brussel sprouts in a cup and I can’t even taste it!
