As a New Year’s gift to myself I bought a juicer at my son’s insistence. I have been juicing everyday, sometimes twice a day. In the mornings it’s carrots, celery, apple, orange, beets, and ginger. In the afternoons it may be pineapple, pear and lime or pear, fennel and celery. We’ve been experimenting with seasonal fruit and vegetable combinations and having fun discovering favorite recipes. (Although I must admit that pineapples are the only ingredient that aren’t in season here). For the most part our juices have consisted of a seasonal variety and selection.
There’s nothing like a refreshing glass of homemade juice awash in color to wake you up in the morning or to pick you up in the afternoon. I am hooked now on the concept of juicing for health. I’ve noticed increased energy and an overall sense of well being. Could it be psychological? – sure but I don’t mind – cause juice gives me an extra boost! My goal is to juice 365 days this year and savor each sip! Cheers!
