|this juice is magic|
how could I possibly eat all these veggies in one day?!
|our juicer is easy enough|
for the kids to help with
Since then, I have been pining away for a juicer.
(Only the best for Martha, her juicer was a little more than I wanted to invest.) Thanks to the generous reviews, I found a great juicer on Amazon for a reasonable price. It's what I consider 'entry-level' and doesn't leave much fiber ... but I confess I find the juice more palatable that way.
So we took the plunge and I'm hooked. We make juice 4 or 5 times a week. It's not a fast ... just a supplement to what we already make in the morning.
The kids really love a pear and apple combination, so I begin there and then finish with extra veggies and herbs. Maybe it will keep the winter colds at bay?
|this is the pear-apple combo I serve the boys|
My favorite morning combination
1 handful of spinach (kale or dandelion greens work, too)
1 organic pear
1 organic granny smith apple
(I take out two small servings for the kids at this point)
1/2 a cucumber
2 stalks celery
1 handful of parsley
(sometimes I add mint or dill if I have it on hand)
1 lemon, rind removed
1" piece of ginger
Delicious! (And I really notice a difference in my skin!)
