Yeah I know, juicing is currently the “IN” thing to do, but I have to say that I have now gotten into the habit of juicing at least 5 times a week and replacing meals with it.
Some combinations are quite frightening but somehow they always turn out good, and when I mean good, I mean that you can actually enjoy the taste without cringing! lol
Also don’t let the color fool you, sometimes they are not too appealing to the eye! I get a lot of comments like “OMG you are going to drink that”!
Something a nutirtionist friend of mine who runs a Wellness Program pointed out to watch out when juicing is:
- Keep a good balance of the food chain colors
- Watch out for fruits and veggies that contain sugar
- Never have more than 8oz
- If its green, its good for you
- oh and here is my 2 cents on this one, if it tastes too good, there is some naughty ingredient in there! haha
Anyway, here is my weekend juice for your enjoyment.
Quantities vary as it depends on which veggies and fruits are living in my fridge, but todays juice consists of:
- 4 Celery Stalks
- 1 cucumber
- 1/4 fennel bulb
- 2 green apples
- big piece of ginger
- 3 turmeric bulbs
- 1 lime
- 3 skinny carrots
I place all of the above except for the limes in my lovely Juicing machine and then hand squeeze the lime into it at the end.
I keep my juices in Mason Jars for up to 4 days with no problem!
If anyone out there gets to make it, send me your feedback!
