I’ve been juicing. Not juice fasting or anything crazy like that, this girl needs food. Just juicing. I’ve been incorporating fresh juice into my daily eats, either as a snack or in addition to a protein, to complete a meal. I’m a novice, and really don’t follow any recipes. I make juice out of a combination of crap that’s about to go bad in my fridge and stuff that looks good at the grocery store and seems like it would make good juice. I do know that in order to keep sugar and calories low, fresh juice should be about 80% vegetables and 20% fruit. Inspired by this season of love that’s upon us, I juiced up some pretty purple goodness last night. Love juice, if you will.
The pulp from this stuff was so gorgeous I almost couldn’t bear to throw it down the garbage disposal (some day when I have a little more time, I plan to bake up some muffins with the pulp from my juices) so I took a picture first.
This ish is good.
You should make some.
– 1 apple – 2 cucumbers – 2 red plums – 5 strawberries – handful cranberries – handful baby carrots – handful grape tomatoes – 1 small head red cabbage – 1/2 small head lettuce – I suppose my fruit/vegetable ratio is a bit off on this one, but it’s the only non-green juice I’ve made so that doesn’t concern me too much.
But if you’re looking to make something a bit more sinful than 60/40 juice for your Valentine, try one of these:
Night night, loves!
