Something "New"

No big New Year's posts from me as I am not much into formal resolutions.  I do have goals for myself and things I want to do to challenge myself physically, spiritually, intellectually and mentally. With that said, I hope you all had a great New Year's and this week has been great. It has certainly had its challenges getting everyone back in the swing of school and routine.  The morning are sure the biggest challenge.

With the theme of "new", I thought I would share some things that I love to encourage you to start something new.

I am starting with my 3 favourite juice recipes.  If you missed my post about my new Breville Fountain Crush, check it out here.  I absolutely LOVE my juicer.  We had a houseful of friends over just a few days prior to Christmas and if they didn't think we were strange before, they do now.  We spent quite some time talking about juicing, sampling it, testing it on a refractometer (don't ask, I don't quite understand it yet myself).  Everyone went home with literally food for thought.  The crazy things you do.  Anyway, my 3 favs!

Mean Green (from Reboot with Joe)

2 cucumbers

8 celery stalks

4 green apples

10-12 kale leaves

1 lemon

 1 1/2 inches of ginger root

This makes about 2 quart sealers of juice.  I mix it all together in a large juice pitcher then pour into my jars so it is very full.  Store in the fridge.  It serves my husband and myself for about 2 days (drinking about 2X each per day)

Blazing Beets (from Juicing Bible second edition)*

3 beets

1/2 inch piece of ginger root

2 green apples

2-3 cloves of garlic

2 celery stalks

3-4 handfuls of spinach

Blend together and pour into a juice pitcher to mix, then divide into jars.  Will fill a quart jar and a pint jar.  Store in the fridge.  Tastes super good cold just after a hard run!

*I have made some adaptation from the original recipe

Purple Power ( Juicing Bible second edition)

2 pitted plums

1 cup purple grapes

1 cup blackberries

1 tsp cod liver oil

Juice the fruit then whisk in the cod liver oil.

Hope you enjoy and happy juicing!
