Not the way I used to get juiced. In fact I haven’t had a drink in a month since we began this journey towards a healthier lifestyle. At my peak I was drinking a 30 pack of beer every two days and I justified it by the fact that I didn’t drive when I was drinking, or become a different person. Still the damage was being done to my health.
I stumbled across a healthy juicing program by Joe Cross of Reboot with Joe and definitely liked the looks of the juicing and all the proven benefits that go along with it.
We purchased a Breville Juicer and received it the other day. It arrived pretty fast and we decided to try it tonight.
This juicer is a GREAT model to use if you are interested in giving juicing a try. The gray container on the left side of the machine holds all the pulp neatly and the pitcher on the right obviously catches your juice.
We went with a recipe of the following:
8 Celery Stalks
4 Apples Cored
16 Stalks of Kale (stems & leaves)
1 Lemon peeled
2″ piece of Ginger
This recipe makes quite a bit of juice and there was enough for both of us to have a good sized glass. I put a little bit of ice in mine to chill it down a bit.
This juice recipe is FANTASTIC! It has a nice taste of lemon and ginger. It carries a very fresh taste that is not at all over powering. This will be a regular staple for us I think.
If you are considering going or have gone Plant Based Only I would encourage you to give juicing a try if you haven’t already.
