Day 274: Fresh Juice

Posted by annagrace under Days 201-300

For my birthday this year my sister gave me money to get a juicer! Juicing is something she’s really gotten into lately and she even did a 10 cleanse where she juiced for every meal! Drinking fresh fruit and vegetables is a really great way to be more healthy and something I’ve been wanting to try for awhile, so I decided that for lent this year I was going to juice for at least one meal every day! I’m starting a day late because I have strep throat and felt to bad to do anything yesterday, but better late than never! I probably won’t post every juice I make as a daily creative project, but I was so excited about this first attempt at juicing that I had to post it!

The juice I made today contained:

1 small Fiji apple
2 small oranges
2 handfuls of baby carrots (had them from awhile back)
1/2 mango
1/3 cucumber
1″ section fresh ginger root

I took a picture straight from the juicer and then one after stirring it up because you can really tell that the cucumber was one of the last things I put it!

I have to tell you, this was pretty awesome! Next time I may use less orange, more apple because it was a little citrusy, but it was tasty! I’ll also probably lay off the ginger for a few days because I LOVE it, but it hurt my throat sooooo bad!

Juicing is a pretty major undertaking in that it takes awhile to prep everything and then the clean up is hard, but it tastes soooo good! And I know for sure I don’t get the fruits and vegetables I need every day, so I could see this making me feel better over time!
