3/18/2013 New Juice today.

What a great way to start a Monday.  LOTS of juice with fresh fruits and veggies.  I made enough for breakfast and lunch.  10 Carrots, 6 celery, 2 cucumbers, 1 radish, 4 apples, 1 pear, handful of fresh green beans and asparagus.  I really was good and more pulp than I usually get in my juices.  I have never tried to juice green beans or asparagus but it came out fine.  I was going to add another carrot just in case it was a little bitter but did not have to.

I brought my “juicing bible” to the store with me, to pick out a new juice for tomorrow.  I can’t say I am stuck with the same juice everyday because I change out some of the ingredients.  But I really like this one and tend to make it a lot.  Of course, it will have to include the same fruits and veggies my husband just bought so they don’t go bad and I don’t want to go back to the store.  hmm what to do.

Do you have a favorite juice or your goto juice?  Feel free to share.

What exercise have you done today?  At -14 this morning, I walked the dog 3/4 miles around the block and walked my 1/2 mile to the store.  By the time I was walking to the store it was 15 degrees.  Good thing was no wind.  Still have to walk my 1/2 mile back to the car and another 3/4 mile walk with the dog tonight.  May add 20 minutes on the rowing maching before watching the finale for biggest loser.  Don’t miss that.  That show this year has really motivated my.  Last year, not so much with all the fighting and back stabbing.

My Veggies that I used today are

6 Carrots, 4 celery, 2 radish, 2 tomatoes and 2 cucumbers, handful of spinach and handful of kale.  I decided to not use fruit today to see if I just like the veggies.  It was really good.  I will put this in my file to keep with the juices I liked.  Some of the Juicing variations I don’t care for, but this was really good. 

We had an emergency trip to Grand Rapids, MI and I was without my juice.  I did not like that, but when dining, went with the salads, no dressing, no cheese, no breads or pasta and still was able to eat.  That is amazing.  I was not ready for the restaurant world, but we did fine.  People gave us some strange looks at Cracker Barrel when we told them to keep the biscuits and corn bread…(it is just seems like a waist…lol)
