It didn’t take long to learn that we had no clue what we were doing. Our first shot at making juice was a disaster as far as flavor. It made us realize that what came out of the juicer was not necessarily going to taste like what went into the juicer. It also made us realize that we couldn’t just throw anything into it and expect it to be palatable.
After the orange juice disaster, we found some recipes and tried some juices. We found a recipe for green juice and made it. It was ok, but nothing that we were crazy about.
It was clear that this was going to be a long adventure of trial and error. This was not what I was hoping for. I was ready to jump in feet first and get started with this now! I did not want a delay no matter how short it might be.
My daughter and I did some experimenting with juicing while she visited. I later consulted with Tamara on what were some of her favorite recipes. I planned to start my first round of juicing after she left.
I was anxious to find the real me that I had been hiding all these years. Looking back, I now see that God brought people into my life when I needed them. He knew when I was ready for a change and brought people and circumstances into my life at a time that I was ready to listen and willing to make changes.
