First juice: Go Green Juice in Vitamix

wpid-img_20150117_194152.jpg wpid-img_20150117_192852.jpg

Tried my first juice and surprised at how fresh it tasted. Must go organic when it comes to vegetable and fruit in juice! I blended the entire fruit/vegetable after washed. I feel like I just drank a glass of salad, only fresher and with more nutrients.

Go Green Juice:

1 cucumber

3 celery stalks

2 apples (entire, except the sticker :P)

6-8 kale leaves

1 lime (peeled)

water/ice

Juicing: Organic juicing box from Spud.ca

SPUD_JuiceRecipes_WEB

Further to my post about watching Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, I’ve decided to give juicing a try. I’m not ready to do the fast as suggested by the movie, but I’m okay with juicing as a meal replacement.

I have an existing Vitamix and instead of buying a juicer, I decided to go with whole food juicing. This method is not better or worst than traditional juicing. But for what I would like to achieve, it will work just fine. I love having the fiber in the juice to make me fell full and I love the fast cleaning of my Vitamix, which is 2 pros on whole foo juicing.

I did try carrot, asian pear, lettuce, ginger, pineapple, apple and lemon into a juice, which happens to be what’s in my fridge. Not Bad, I thought! I am not a regular purchaser of organic produce, but I really dislike wax, pesticide, etc on the surface of the fruit/vegetable. I decided to spend a little bit more and buy an organic juicing box from Spud.ca. For $50CAD, I’ll be getting: 6 Gala apples, 1.5lb beets, 2lb carrots, 1 stalk celery, 1 rainbow chard, 3 cucumbers, 2 kale, 0.5lb limes, 3 oranges, 1 parsley.

Updates of my juicing experience to follow upon receiving my delivery of my first ever organic shopping tomorrow.
