No worries, friends. I am talking about juicing, like this.....
Isn't she lovely? I put her right next to my Vitamix, so when I'm having a bad day I can talk to them both at the same time.
We've been having a lot of fun with juicing, but the juice I am most proud of is my green juice. Mr. McGhee and I drank it after we exercised yesterday morning. At 5 am. Can I repeat that? Yesterday, at 5 am, Mr. McGhee and I drank green juice after we exercised.
I nearly forgot to take a photo, probably because my brain was still a bit foggy. I mean, it was 5 am. And, Mr. McGhee and I were up, exercising.
This particular green juice was a combination of spinach, kale, romaine lettuce, celery, lemon, and ginger. Holy cow! What a way to start the day!
One thing I am noticing about juicing is that you need a lot of apples and carrots. So, the other day I bought 4 bags of organic apples and 4 bags of organic carrots. The people at the grocery store probably thought I have horses. And, even though I knew I'd be using those apples and carrots for juicing, I also used them to whip up a batch of one of my absolute favorite salads.
1. Place apples in a large bowl and toss with lemon juice. A
2. Add carrots, chives, oil, sugar, salt, pepper and cheese; toss to mix thoroughly.
This salad is delish. It's crisp and refreshing. I served mine with shredded BBQ pork on Great Harvest dinner rolls and sweet potatoes, with entirely too much butter. And I didn't worry about that butter either, since I had exercised very hard that day. At 5 am.
Another thing I love about this apple salad is that it keeps well over night. So the next morning, I enjoyed my leftover apple salad over baby spinach leaves. Delish!
