My first juicing attempt..hysterical
Finally got my new juicer. I don't have the brand here with me ( im at work)
but it's one of those put the produce in and turn the handle. I got some fresh organic beets from my co-op so gave it a try. Well first I didnt have the drain container in right place so juice went down side of counter. Then my 3 yo son followed by my 7 yo daughter both have to try out moms new toy. By the time I was finished I had red beet juice all over the kitchen, me and both kids. It was funny. It seemed like so much work and out of 3 whole beets only got about 1/4 cup of juice. Is that average? Then when I turned my back to start to clean up my daughter drank it all down in one gulp!!!
Luckly, I read up on juicing kale and decided just to start adding that leaf by leaf into my fruit smoothie. It's true, did that this morning and you really can't taste it.
Question..how does everyone else store these veggies. I have so many. Can you freeze the kale then just add a frozen leaf to your smoothie as is? Since heating food destoys the enzmes woudn't drooping the temp have an effect as well? I have been 90% raw for 4 days and I honesty feel more energetic although I did not sleep well last night and when I did I had really vived, weird dreams. Strange. Thanks for reading.
