January 16th: On the (Juicing) Wagon

Yuppers, we did it :)

 After being inspired by our dear friends Merlyn and Harry, Mikey and I decided to give juicing a go :) My Mama was kind enough to buy us a basic juicer on super-sale, and we've been doing fresh-squeezed juice for breakfast the last few mornings :) So far they've been mostly citrus based, but OH MY GOD THEY ARE SO GOOD!!! After a few days of experimentation with porportions, here are two morning concoctions we've particularly enjoyed:

-1/2 red grapefruit
-1 blood orange
-2 clementines


- 2 clementines
-1/2 bag cranberries

We bought cucumbers, carrots and kale also, we just haven't worked up the gumption for straight vegetable juice yet, but we're getting there. Tomorrow, I think there will be some apple/pear/carrot juice :) In another week or two once we're a little more in the groove I think we'll try a short juice fast to see how it goes. Several of my friends have been experimenting with Juicing lately. Anyone care to weigh in with their favorite recipes?

I'm all ears :)


  1. Very kewl! I'm glad to hear it! I've been trying quite a lot. It really depends on what you've got. Maybe I'll blog about it today....and give you some recipes.

    But first. Coffee :)
