Ordered a New Juicer!

I am very sad today. My juicer "cracked" and broke yesterday when I was cleaning it. The grinder that fits onto the "thingy" that spins it with the basket cracked off. OMG. I thought I was going to cry. I am seriously addicted to my fresh juice now. ;) I called every store I could think of who sold a Breville around here & even 50 miles away! No one had it in stock. In fact, they are all sold out. Hmmm...that's weird. I can only guess that I am not the only one who watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead". What an awesome documentary. I have had a Jack Lalanne juicer for years. I started seriously juicing a few years ago "before Jeff" and was getting into the whole health thing. Since we watched the documentary about a week and half ago, I have juiced every morning since then. I LOVE fresh juice.

This morning I had to endure Tropicana 50, which is supposed to have half the calories, half the carbs. It's been sitting in the fridge for 10 days since I started juicing. I wasn't crazy about it 10 days ago. I thought it tasted like watered down orange juice, you know, like that 50 meant it was 50% water. ;)  Today I tried to drink some, thinking oh well, atleast it's some kind of juice. OMG. Awful. Just awful! I swear after 10 days of drinking the "real" stuff, this tastes like a glass of sugar with orange flavoring. I could not believe how awful it was. WOW. Was I really drinking this 10 days ago thinking that it tasted like flavored water?

The new juicer I had rushed with one day day shipping so it should be here tomorrow when I get home from work. UGH. Another morning without my juice. I hope I can make it. One thing I know for sure. I'm having juice for dinner tomorrow night. :)
