Juice Feast ~ Day 6 & 7
Shalom Shalom Friends, all is well here on Day 6. This morning was a juice-a-palooza! I had to made juice for 2 days. Today and Shabbat, so I will be listing them on Fridays. I had fun experimenting with some new combinations and thought more seriously about recording amounts for you (and me) for future. :-)
Mean Green Juice Original
Wheat Grass, Pea Sprouts, Beat, Carrot, Ginger, Orange
1 1/2 Qrts
Kale, Cuke, Celery, Apple, Mint
Kale, Cuke, Celery, Pineapple
Things I learned:
1. Wheat grass is a yucky tasting medicine, not a yummy food stuff. :-) It is best either taken in a shot and chased with something yummy, or hidden in Carrot, Beat juice of some sort. It really wrecks green juice.
2. I was so excited be able to use fresh mint out of my bed still. We had a really cold snap, last night and some of it was damaged, but I got a good handful and it adds a delightful dimension to my juice!
3. As much as I LOVE sprouts to eat - a little goes along way in juice. They leave a bitter after taste and can spoil a whole batch of juice! So I will go really light on the sprouts or save them for chewing in the future! :-)
4. A bag of celery hearts (2 hearts) is equivalent to a whole head of celery. I have to get hearts because of buying in bulk, they keep much longer for me than the whole heads.
