A teaser (or should I say ‘squeezer’) to my Summer of juicing!

Beetiful

This summer has become the Summer of Juicing. Yes, you heard me– JUICING. I know that this is super trendy out in L.A. but I am not turning my fruits and veggies into liquids because I’ve hopped on the west-coast bandwagon in preparation of moving out west. It’s actually fun. Okay, maybe I’m the only person that finds it fun, but it truly is a lifestyle that I am quickly falling in love with. I now walk through the grocery store seeing vegetables and imagining what they could add to my juice recipes. I’ve never been a huge beet fan, but now they are my favorite, adding a bright red hue and an earthy taste to my juices.

As I have fallen into a regular routine of juicing nearly each morning, I have decided to go on a juicing journey. By the end of the summer I want to have created the perfect juicing recipes and tricks to make this whole juicing thing worth my (and your) while. From how to beat the high prices, to cleaning that damn 6-piece juicer, I’ll discover it all and share these discoveries with you!

Now as the title suggests, this is a teaser post, so I thought I’d leave you with my most recent recipe for my Grown Up Lemonade:

Grown Up Lemonade

This lemonade will quench that Virginia Summer thirst just as well as Newman’s Own but has vegetable nutrition, ginger for digestion, and no added sugar! I’d say give it to your kids, but it’s almost too good to share.

Ingredients: 

  • 5-6 good sized carrots (with skins)
  • 1 whole lemon (with seeds and skin)
  • 2 Granny Smith apples (without seeds)
  • 1 knob of ginger (with skins)

Now… join me in my juicing journey, and let me convert you into a juicer!
