to do. to see. to hear. to love

i have become obsessed with juicing.  i have been juicing for breakfast and often lunch and a light dinner. due to the massive amount of media i have been watching based on diet, i am now questioning my intake of meat and cheese again. i watched forks over knives last night and am ready to throw out all those lovely cheeses in my cheese drawer.

here are a few of my favorite combos so far! just remember to limit the juice to one or two fruits as they are still high in sugar. also, beets and carrots are good for adding sweetness,but they are high in carbs. so, you shouldn’t just juice with fruits and carrots. you need lots of greens in there too!!

fennel. orange. kale. carrot

beet. cabbage(red or green). spinach. apple. ginger

pear. kale. cucumber. mint

cucumber. spinach. pear. cabbage. mint

strawberry. .lime. mint. cabbage. kale

orange. celery. beet. apple. kale

 veggies like cabbage, celery, and cucumber have lots of juice to give. where kale and spinach will produce a small concentrated amount. using things like ginger, mint, basil, lemon or lime can add just a bit of a kick to the juice! play around, i have yet to make a combo i didn’t like!

 now, what do i do with all those cheese, meat and flour posts i have pending? that is the question.

happy juicing!

    I LOVE it!!! I don’t have a juicer, so I am doing morning smoothies.. Spinach, apple, cucumber, avocado, almond milk, frozen banana. That’s pretty much all I do, and I need to get more adventurous. Your juice looks yummy and super-hydrating!

    Great post, we are switching to a raw diet in June (www.thebeachhousekitchen.wordpress.com) You can live a healthy diet without meat and cheese for certain.

    Don’t give up cheese and meat, they taste so good. People have been eating them for thousands of years. The problem now is that too many people live a sedentary life and don’t burn the calories. Look at the Eskimo’s most of there diet is fish and blubber……

      yes! that is what i have generally believed. this documentary links cancer to animal based products, and it was very interesting. i believe there are so many different factors into all of it. i would just like to not make meat and cheese such a primary front runner in my diet. i plan on still enjoying them, in moderation…hopefully!!!

        I’m a cave-man but you are right we all have different body types and dietary needs. I love fruit and veg but I prefer animals when they are on a plate 😉
