Juicing


I can certainly tell a difference in my energy and general wellness when I'm juicing. Have any of you tried it? I have a Champion Juicer and it is an awesome addition to the kitchen...it also helps when juicing for jelly. Here's the story of my breakfast one morning last week:

Here's the pile of fruits and veggies I started with:


After sending them through the trusty Champion, here's the color in my juice...isn't it lovely? Can you imagine all the vitamins and antioxidants in there?


And this is all that's left over...(it goes straight out to the chickens, who also love it when I'm juicing regularly!):


Believe it or not, you can't taste the spinach at all, and the carrot really adds a nice flavor when combined with all the fruits. My 7 and 5 year old girls will agree that this juice is yummy! They always get excited when they hear the juicer whirring!

I love it! I have an Omega and I like to do juice fasts to jump start weight loss or quickly get over illness. Which might be tomorrow since I am feeling a sore throat coming on...hope I have enough fruit and veggies! My favorite is pear/sweet potato/orange. Can't get enough!

LOVE juicing. My little one goes crazy when the juicer starts going, dancing, the whole bit. Nothing beats some good juice to kickstart the day:)
