I was recently perusing the 101 Cookbooks website, an awesome website by Heidi Swanson. It’s got enticing photos and texts and I’ve had great success with all the recipes I’ve tried from there; which I think says something great about it.
This post about juicing, in particular, inspired me.
So, yesterday I set about juicing some of my go-to ingredients to use in my morning juice.
First, photos of the fruits of my labor (har!):
Any idea what is in the last jar? And, nope, it’s not lemon…
With the cucumber and carrot, I poured them into ice cube trays:
Then I popped them out and added them to a tightly sealed container in the freezer.
This morning I tested out the carrot. I juiced a couple of small apples and a small lemon and added three big cubes of carrot juice. Oh, I also added about a half teaspoon of ginger “ice: shavings and added them. It added a great kick! The icy bits melted nicely in my vacuum sealed cup and left the juice super cold for a while.
Even though I still juiced a little this morning, it still saved me time. I think I’ll have to do some more juicing this coming weekend. Hmm, what to juice next?
