Like I mentioned before, I bought a juicer a couple of weeks back. And I absolutely love it! (Yes, I still do ;-)). And with my son being allergic to a few things like milk and eggs, I have been changing our diet quite a lot in the last few years and even more since the summer. I’m becoming more and more concious as a parent and as a person; we cook from scratch almost always, I avoid things like dairy, we eat even more veggies than we used to, and my son doesn’t get “extra sugar” like candy and stuff.

Easy would be to buy everything in the middle aisles of the supermarket, and not spend the majority of my money on fruit and veggies and alternatives to dairy, which are most of the time more expensive than the “normal” stuff.
