My husband was inspired by this documentary last year so he went out and bought a juicer. He juiced for a few weeks, while I sat by and turned my nose up at the grassy potent juice he said tasted "good".
We both quickly realized that juicing is a chore. And so the juicer moved in next to our garage refrigerator and they've been neighboors ever since.
Since I've gotten healthier, I thought I'd start juicing in the mornings after my workout. It isn't intented to be a meal replacement, but simply a nourishing addition to my breakfast.
Here is my favorite juice recipe:
Doesn't it look fresh and appetizing?
I know, not really. Blame the carrots. They add a nice brown glow to the otherwise green juice.
It truly tastes much better than it looks.
I've found that you can come up with whatever concoction you want for your juices. Substitute kale for spinach, or add ginger.
If you are curious about the different benefits of juicing vs. blending, see this post. She also shares a few recipes that I would like to try.
Have you juiced? What are your favorite recipes?
*this recipe makes a lot of juice. I only poured half of the juice into the drinking glass, so keep in mind that it makes enough for 2 glasses.
