My friend, Valerie, got me to try juicer juice a while ago, and I didn’t have the best experience. Now that it has been a few months, I decided to give it another try. I stopped by Whole Paycheck on my way back to work. I decided on no beets this time which I think taste like dirt.
Green Juice Ingredients:
- about 5 kale leaves
- 1 apple
- half a cucumber
- 3 or 4 stalks of celery
- half of 1 lemon
It was delicious! But, what I have learned is that you must drink it right away or it starts to taste funky (within 20-30 minutes). Plus, you don’t want to leave it sitting out because it is not pasteurized.
Another trick: Pair more strong veggies with some mild ones (kale is more bitter, and the others are very pleasant and mild). Include only one fruit so that it is not too sweet, and always add some lemon or lime.
On my way to check out at Whole Foods, I slipped and fell on some potato-y crud on the floor. A woman who works there was so concerned about me filing a report about the accident. Seriously? Are they that worried about being sued. I reassured her it was just an accident, and that I was more concerned about not spilling my juice. So clumsy.
I bought some of my favorite healthy crackers (Mary’s Gone Crackers brand) to munch on while I had the juice because all of the acidity can bother my stomach a little.
They are made from brown rice, quinoa, flax, sesame seeds, and some herbs and salt.
