So now I’ve been juicing for a couple weeks.
Here’s how it’s gone so far:
First, I’d like to say, that the juice I’m producing is delicious, and fun to drink just because.
I’ve come to crave it.
Second, it makes me feel good. I can feel a difference immediately after drinking eight or sixteen ounces of fresh juice. And it makes a difference throughout my day, and throughout my week.
So I like it.
Third, I’m happy to report that I’ve lost a solid ten pounds since I got my juicer.
Juicing is expensive. So I’ve learned to shop, and find vegetables at the store that are in season or less expensive. When zucchinis were cheaper, I bought lots of them. Same with cucumbers, and limes, and carrots, etc.
I’m educating myself. I’m reading more about the benefits of specifically juiced vegetables.
And, I’m spreading the word. Two neighbors have given me vegetables from their gardens because they heard I was juicing. One gave me a large sack of very nice squash, and another gave me a very large bag of the biggest cucumbers I’ve ever seen. So things have been good.
I always put a lime and about an inch and a half of ginger root in all my juices, and that’s great. I put an apple in most of them. And I like a pear in my juices. I’ve put grapes and kiwi in too, and I like that.
The base of the juice is carrots, celery, cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchini, and things like that.
I add what greens I can, like lettuce, Kale, and spinach.
That’s it so far.
