JOTD - Tropical Sweet Potato

1:21:00 PM

My daughter asked me this morning - "Mom,where are you taking the photos of your juice that you post on Instagram?" and I laughed, because it's in our kitchen...those are my outdated 90's Formica counter-tops, and the backdrop...well, it's scrapbook paper.  I *would* take a photo of my kitchen without the paper backdrop, but, well - nobody wants to see my kitchen, or my office that is connected to it.  I like to maintain a little bit of mystery (we are going with that...we don't need to mention the laundry that is unfolded or the floors that need swept that this paper back drop covers quite nicely...)

Anyway, today we went a little tropical.  Pineapple, sweet potato, and apple.  The juice was mostly pineapple....I had some that needed used pretty quickly. Plus, I haven't been feeling well, and did you know that Pineapple is an awesome natural cough remedy?  Really, it contains an enzyme called Bromelain which helps reduce the production of phlegm and mucus in the respiratory, gross, but cool, right?  Sweet potato and Pineapple are both known for their anti-inflammatory properties...and, apples, well - an apple a day, right?

So, there you have it.
