This morning I concocted a scrum-dily-icious juice. (As my wiegh in last night was not reward enough!) :-) This one is going on the recipe page! I am calling it:
2 - Pinapple Mint Green Juice (mks 1 qrt) - 1/2 bunch of Kale, 1/2 pinapple (peeled), handful of mint, handful of parsley, 1cuke, 1 celery celery heart (or half a head)
Today was a tasty juice day! Here is another. The color is GORGEOUS!
1 Qrt - Sunset Blend- One large sweet potato, 1 carrot, 1 red bell, 1 beet, 2 apples, 1 orange
Detoxing: The other day I was quick to assume that fennel makes the juice kind of thick and slimy. But then it was happening with other juices. Sorry fennel, I'm not so sure it was your "fault" now. It seems to be a way that my body shows detoxing. It comes and goes, but it happening more often even with juices. I have juiced before without the slimy tongue effect. It kind makes the whole inside of my mouth feel like it is coated. I recently remembered reading that "tongue scrapers" were handy tool during a fast...so apparently, it is a common way to release toxins. Ben used to have it happen to him when he ate our fast food on the road a lot back in PA. I have never had it happen until now...So that is another good, but subtle way my body is being flushed. YAY! :-)
