But at $250...I don't know, maybe I can convince him otherwise because he's also cheap. ;)
Or I wonder if my friend who is coming to help would do it...she's super interested in anatomy and physiology and is not squeamish that way, but she's also a vegetarian.
My midwife says she will rinse it for me and cut a few pieces so I can have smoothies until I'm ready to encapsulate. I've been thinking about how I could freeze the whole thing for smoothies without it sticking together. Do you think putting cut pieces into ice cube trays would work? Or maybe lining a cookie sheet with parchment paper and putting the pieces in a container after they are frozen.
I'm being a little silly wanting to encapsulate myself, my midwife can refer me to ladies who will do it for $100-150. I just really want to, and was hoping to make a youtube video out of it. I think $250 is justified, I understand it's a bit time consuming, I just feel I am capable of doing it myself.
