Day one of Juicing went well for me. I drank one fruit juice (and skipped the kombucha because it’s not ready yet), but other than that I stuck to green juice and tea. Joe just told me that he has had enough watermelon juice, and that I should give the rest to the Friends. I chuckled to myself on this one—somehow I knew his 80 ounces of watermelon juice combos would be a bit much…but I’m glad I let him figure it out on his own!
Anyway, onto tomorrow’s juices! Joe stopped at a Farm Stand and got beets (way too many…one beet goes a looooooong way in juice!), apples, and cucumbers. I went to the South Wedge Farmer’s Market and got two kinds of peaches, purple grapes, and a few different lettuces (that I’ll use tomorrow). Thankfully, Joe helped me by juicing half a watermelon (for me to use as a base for several juices) and cleaning up the Juiceman (I had already juiced the peaches and the grapes by the time he got home).
Veg Juice #1: romaine, beet, carrot, cilantro, parsley, watermelon, celery
Veg Juice #2: cucumber, lime, ginger, watermelon, apple
We’ll see how it goes! The plans for when to drink what are the same as yesterday. I’m just finishing a green juice right now–and it still tastes good, so that’s a good sign–I’m not sick of it yet! I was tempted to bite an apple as I cut them up, but I resisted.
Here’s the tea I’ve been drinking with a small scoop of local buckwheat honey:
