Getting Juiced

What started out as a harmlessness preoccupation, has turned into a ritual! Juicing is my new love – I do mean the healthy juicing. Once I saw the photo Kate Hough posted on Facebook a few weeks ago I knew I had to try it too. Here’s Kate’s recipe for  green juice is inspiring

1 head romaine lettuce with the heart of the lettuce cut off
3 – 4 kale leaves with the thick stalks cut off
1/2 bunch parsley
1/2 bunch cilantro
1 apple
1 cucumber 
4 – 5 celery stalks
1/2 lemon, peeled

The cilantro adds the kick, cucumber, apple, and celery mellow out the grassy flavors of the kale.

But, I could do this with just a blender no way – I got a Dash. It’s smooth, easy to use and in seconds I can produce a delicious refreshing healthy tonic that my body just loves! What do I love best about juicing – besides the healthy goodness for my body – I just like the putting fruits, veggies and herbs into the juicer – it’ just pain fun to experiment!

I did find a couple of other things from the local grown farmers and made in AZ to add to my juices:

Both additives ad extra healthiness.

Just when you didn’t get enough experimentation here are some juicy pins I added to the Daily Eats’ Pinterest board. Don’t forget composting is a great way to give back to the environment!
