Have you thought about juicing but haven’t taken the juicing plunge because you don’t know where to start or because you don’t have a juicer? Maybe my post will inspire you to add juicing to your daily routine. And if you do, you will impress yourself when you create fancy juice bar type juice concoctions at home (I sound like an infomercial, don’t I?). And then, of course, there are the nutritional advantages! This morning, this is what my juicing efforts included:
|half of a large bunch of parsley|
|one fuji apple, seeded and cored|
|one peeled red beet|
|five stalks of celery|
|five collard leaves|
|knob of peeled ginger|
Here’s what it looked like after I had juiced a few of the veggies. Can you guess which ones, based on the color? Pretty, isn’t ?:
And here’s what it looked like when I finished juicing the whole bunch of veggies. This was some sweet stuff – I slugged down two cups worth and wished I’d made more.
There are times when I want the fiber from the veggies. In that case, I use my Vitamix
blender and throw everything in, hook, line, and sinker. But there are other times when I just want no-pulp juice, plain and simple. And then’s when my Jack LaLanne Power Juicer
comes into play. Do you juice? If so, what veggies do you like to juice? If you haven’t begun juicing, tell us what’s holding you back? Let’s try and support each other in developing a healthy juice habit!
