The Juicing Begins
I started using the juicer at breakfast this morning. The first thing I have learned is that it takes a lot of fruits and vegetables to make juice. The juice for breakfast is pictured about. That glass was made from 3 carrots, 2 apples and some ginger. I used way too much ginger so the juice had a bit of a bit. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory so my joints should be happy today. My lunch juice was more vegetable oriented. This one used 3 celery stalks, 5 kale leaves, 2 apples and a lemon. Both had a very good and fresh flavor. The juices have a bit of foam on the top that I am not a fan of. I need to try and skim that off better. I was starting to get really hungry an hour before lunch. I took the dogs on a 3.5 mile walk which diverted my attention from the stomach.
Dinner was soup and salad. A simple side salad was made with romaine, sunflower seeds, dried apricot and rice bread croutons. A sprinkled a little bit of nutritional yeast on top and dressed with my everyday vinaigrette.
