Juicing Journey: Day 4
Our delicious juice for today was using the end of our massive fruit bounty as well as our last veggie supply. I used what we had left and cleaned out our fridge and fruit bowls! That included: 1 bundle of kale, 1 bundle of spinach, collard greens, those 10 oranges I mentioned earlier, and 7 apples. Thankfully, the superbly green juice was leek free, which is the way I want to be!
Off to school for another day of easy drinking. I was feeling more energized, more awake and ready to take on the day. my TH was still at home dreaming of deli sandwiches and drinking his green goodness. I had been making it through the day with only two jars and of course my daily dessert, apple juice! TH on the other hand was still feeling "hunger pangs" so I upped his allotment to 4 jars. This translates to more juicing!
Knowing that we were in desperate need of some more materials AND that I had class later that night, my meticulous mind got to work planning how to efficiently execute my errands. Immediately following school's dismissal I raced to the local market to stock up on new veggies. For $12 (the most so far!) I was ready to go with: 1 bundle of celery, 2 bundles of kale, 1 bundle of beets, 1 of romaine lettuce, 1 collard greens bunch and 14 carrots. Still hoping to hit up our fruit stand on the way to my class, I rushed home to do a quick "veggie drop off" to my TH and was back on the road.
The fruit stand is where I become quite the big spender! For $26 I bought: 2 pineapples, 1 BOX of pink lady apples, 1 bag of oranges, 6 cucumber and 8 lemons. I got to see my "cute, high school girl friend" and chat with her for a bit and went off to class. Thankfully, I had pounded 1/4 a jar before leaving the house so I was feeling nutritized (yes, I did just make up that word) and ready to take on my drive/class session. I was also drinking my usual, what seemed like gallons of water, and couldn't deny how great I felt!
I got home around 7:30, changed and went straight to the juicer. As my TH started peeling oranges (which I selfishly decided could be his job), I moved on to cleaning some veggies and apples. First, I made us each a healthy glass of apple juice, then moved on to our concoction for day 5. For tomorrow the menu consisted of: Kale, celery, beets, carrots, apples, pineapple and oranges. YUM!
Day 5 on the way…
