Todays Juice

Made my current favorite juice this AM. Did a double portion to last two servings.
It’s the same recipe as below – Dr. Juice

I have to start looking up some nice recipes for the lush pulp – almost hurts to throw them in the food waste…

No pretty picture this time as I had to put my little down for a nap – got them in my containers, drank one and put the other in the fridge for later use 🙂

Todays Juicing

I really needed a juice today – we have had a few rubbish nights and Im so tired!! I was going to make a proper energy kicking Juice but ended up with a detox juice instead.

Detox with a “zing” ingredients:

  • 4 large carrots
  • 2 apples (I used home grown)
  • 1/2 Broccoli stem
  • 3-4 cups of spinach
  • 1/2 inch slice unwaxed lemon
  • 1/2 slice ginger
  • Ice  (apparently I forgot to fill the trays again.. so no ice today)

Im not even going to try and paint you a pretty picture of how pretty it looks – cus to be honest, the color you get when mixing orange and green is.. well, not pretty :p

Juicing!

So I’ve gotten very interested in juicing lately and since I actually had my hubby get me a juicer several years ago – I was very excited to actually try it out properly.

I started doing allot of searching online for good green juice recipes because – lets face it – greens tend to be the smaller portions of my meals, if they are even there. Don’t get me wrong, I love veggies and fruit – but we have a bad habit of forgetting to get the “right” type vegetable for each dinner (it happens when the organising skills are poor!) so often we would get veggies and they’d get old or plain bad in the fridge and tossed away…. Dinners tend to consist of 50% protein and 50% carbs. Not good for my weight, I tell you..

So now that I’ve done more research Im getting the hang of things! You can basically juice anything green and fruity but not all greens and fruit go together :p I have done some fails while trying to get a hold of the “right” ingredients. I found that apples are good with most greens – but don’t mix too many berries, fruits and veggies!

I found that Norway is RUBBISH when it comes to veggies! We have NO KALE – thats right – none. I can find Chinese Kale in the Asian shops, but the packages are tiny and very expensive. Would make the juices very costly.

I use mostly Baby Spinach leaves and Broccoli instead. Works okay. Yesterday my hubby found raw whole Beetroot! Yay! Turned out he had been looking for “red celery” – eeehh okay? LOL cute man 😉 Thankfully my mom put him on the right track when they met each other in the grocery store.

Todays “green” juice was Jason – The Juice Master – “Dr. Juice”

Juice Ingredients:

  • 1 inch slice large carrot (I used a little more)
  • 2 apples (I used home grown)
  • 1/2 stick celery
  • 1 small whole raw beetroot
  • 1/2 inch slice unwaxed lemon
  • 1/2 slice ginger
  • Ice  (apparently I forgot to fill the trays.. so no ice today)

Who needs true blood, when we can have true juice ❤
