Today I went to Dr. Jean, my dentist (Hi Jean!) for a cleaning and when I got home I hit the kitchen!
Tomorrow I pick up my monthly veggie co-op order, so I needed to make room in the fridge.
This is what I came up with..
4 bunches of celery
1 pound of Spinach from my CSA farmer
3 big pieces of ginger
1 c. lemon juice
3 granny smith apples
liquid stevia to taste
I used two juicers....my leafy greens went in my Green Power Juice and most of the chunky stuff went into my Jack LaLanne.
As you can see this made 1 gallon of green juice.
I immediately drank a quart...mmmmmmmmm..
If you are unfamiliar with the Benefits of drinking green juices..check out this site. "Why drink green juice."
I am recommending this site for information about Greens only. I am unfamiliar with the products they sale.
As always, I recommend that you do your own research.
After I finished making the green juice, I figured I should use up some of my carrots
since the juicers were warmed up.
Ginger Carrot Juice
approximately 5-6 pounds of carrots
4-5 granny smith apples
big piece of ginger
This was just a little shy of one gallon.
When I finished juicing it was time for a mid-afternoon meal...hence my
3 roma tomatoes
5 stalks of celery
big handful of gourmet lettuce mix
handful of baby carrots
2 heaping T. of tahini
1/4 c. lemon juice
1-2 T. Bragg's Liquid Amino's
little water to make it blend easily
I set my Vita-Mix on 3-4 and let it chop it to a soupy consistency.
I topped it with Dulse granules and had some of my Nacho Chipotle Chips on the side.
