The Juice Bar by Sara Lewis #Review

Sometimes your OH can really make you laugh. You needn't point out how much they undermine their own argument.
They come home with a Juicer. A kitchen gadget.
Because it's been reinforced to you so many times about not needing that slow cooker/ bread maker/ waffle maker.
And yet.

And ok. He's been using it. But he's yet to make anything other than he will consume (that's stubbornness for you).
And then Parragon Books come to the rescue....
It's great to give Mr J a bit of direction, which is of course better deemed 'support'.
I love that the book is broken into how recipes can best help you.
Mr J plays Squash and goes swimming every day, so has been paying particular attention to the 'Energy' section.
And the reality is, as you flick through the pages, that the ingredients appeal, and I've loved the kick start session- given the reality is that I dislike mornings.

More fun is trying different fruits, and encouraging the children to get involved. They have staples where fruit is concerned (bananas, apples, strawberries, raspberries)- but new foods are instantly received with trepidation.
Whilst some of the recipes may be initially received with raised eyebrows, after creating them and cynicism is dispersed we've found winners.

And yes. I am of course using this experience to demonstrate to Mr J that more kitchen gadgets should be encouraged!

Disclosure: We received 'The Juice Bar' as a Parragon Book Buddy. All views and opinions contained are our own.
