Juice, juice, juice!

For the past 5 hours we have been busy bees.  We made a game plan and went to the store.  This is what happened.


This is all the fruits and veggies for one week.  Actually, we are probably going to need more!

We got super excited and decided to juice.  We actually made a LOT of juice for snacking on during work.

Check out our fridge!

Crazy, right?  Yeah.

I'll share the two recipes that we found from the movie Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and jointhereboot.com.


The first one is an Apple-Beet-Carrot Juice.

In a juicer you need to juice:
  • 1 apple
  • 2 beets
  • 3 large carrots
  • 1 piece ginger (thumb sized)
  • 4 cups spinach/kale
This is enough to fill up one person, but if you water it down a bit it can last quite awhile.  We doubled it and it made quite a bit.

Sidenote:  If you don't have a juicer, you can put all these ingredients in a blender with some extra water to get a similar taste.  Just make sure to use some sort of strainer like a nut milk bag to get the unwanted pulp/junk from the juice.


The other juice is called a Mean Green Juice.

Juice:
  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 celery stalks
  • 2 apples
  • 6-8 leaves of kale
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp. ginger (we did a little small than thumb size)

There you go!  I've heard/read that for this cleanse it's best to eat smaller meals throughout the day.  That's why we're juicing so we can drink it throughout the day.

Also, while creating these juices we did have one fatality.








Yup.  The lemon juicer died.  My husband doesn't know his own strength.

Oh well.  Good night all.  I hope your Monday is better than most!

Don't mind my overly happy smile.  Juicing is quite fun.
