Breakfast today was supposed to be a carrot, cucumber, lime combination which sounded great! Then, I realized I'm out of cucumber... So, I swapped the cucumber for celery and added a pear for extra sweetness. Turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself. I'm still eager to try the carrot, cucumber, lime combo, so I'm hitting the grocery store this afternoon. Here's the recipe (with my modifications):
2-3 carrots (depending on size)
3 stalks of celery
It turned out pretty well, although it's not a large amount of juice (about 20 ounces). I think an extra pear would've helped - that flavor got lost among the other 3. So, more experimentation, and another recipe for lunch!
Lunch juice - A new favorite!!
2 cups watermelon
3 apples (I did 2 Rome, 1 Granny Smith)
I can get about 2 hours on a glass of juice before I start getting really hungry again. So my mid-afternoon snack is:
3 lettuce leaves
Result? Should've added more strawberry! The lettuce flavor came through a bit strong. And one of the best ways to introduce a new juicing element, is mixed in with more palatable flavors. Will have to re-vamp that one :)
Dinner was a big batch, since my juicer is at work, I wanted to make sure I brought enough home with me.
1 cucumber (peeled)
5 celery stalks
I ended up with about 32 ounces of juice, which was just about right! Even had a little left over to get me through this morning (day 2) till I could get to work and juice. Stay tuned!
