My son turns 24 tomorrow, however he gave me a pre-birthday gift. Over the past two days he taught me about juicing.  We shopped for delicious fruits and veggies, then he gave me and my neighbor juicing lessons.

He showed us the how of it, while explaining the why of each ingredient. He made us 3 different juices yesterday and one today. It is a lot of work, but it is enjoyable work that results in a healthy and (usually) tasty juice.

We liked them all, but Jon said that a lot of people don’t like the green one. It is heart healthy with lots of kale and other green veggies in it.

Now, he’s on his way home and our juice chef is gone! I’m still working on the one he made us a batch of, but tomorrow, I’m on my own; just me and the veggies and the juicer. I’m planning on one a day until I get the hang of it and make it a routine.

Enjoy the photos,

Patti

  1. Be careful with the sugar spikes you get from juicing.

  2. What’s the recipe for the one with kale? I need that. But it can’t have carrots or celery. hah

    • I don’t have it…most of them have kale in them…still getting more info. Our friend, SKNicholls let me know that we need to be careful w/juicing, so I’m doing more research.

  3. Yum! I make a green smoothie every morning – banana, flax seed, protein powder, tumeric, and lots of greens. Yum! ENJOY!!
