4 tomato

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)

Juicing: Organic juicing box from Spud.ca


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.

I’m not encouraging everyone to start flicking off the brown steam off the avocado at the store. But how cool is this!
