Breakfast: Home

17 Oct

Not gonna lie. Husband and I recently joined the juice craze. Based on a friend’s recommendation we watched two food documentaries, Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead and Forks Over Knives. Inspired, I convinced my mom to retrieve the Juice Tiger from her basement and put it out on loan. After dusting the ancient relic off, E. Dohrmann and I proceeded to embark on a five day cleanse where we consumed nothing but juice. At the end of it, our skin and allergies were noticeably better. We also felt like we were sleeping better. In other words, the cleanse worked miracles in our lives.

In the beginning we tried juicing every fruit and vegetable under the sun, including a recipe that once combined  carrot greens, pineapple, beets and radishes. Let’s just say some combinations work better than others. A good general rule of thumb is lemon and ginger make everything taste better. We’ve since upgraded to a Breville juicer which has turned out to be a life changing event. We now try to make juice at least once a day. Here’s the recipe to our favorite:

Mean Green Juice

  • 1 Bunch Kale
  • 1 Cucumber
  • 2 Green Apples
  • 1 Lemon
  • 2 inch piece of ginger
