the weekly juice

Still juicing like a maniac over here--it has officially become part of our after school routine....
get home
throw stuff on floor
yell at tell them nicely to take stuff to their rooms
juice and snack
homework
yell at tell them ever so sweetly to stop goofing around and just get their homework done.....(this part goes on forever)
all while drinking our juice.

This juice has quickly become a favorite, and it's very easy with hardly any prep at all. Spinach doesn't yield a whole lot of juice, so we each get a smaller glass, but it's tasty and refreshing and loaded with vitamins A and K.
We all love this juice--no complaints at all from the kiddos.
Bonus: I like it extra tart, and sometimes add a little more lemon. 
Double Bonus: Sometimes I throw a few carrots in to this mix--it makes it muddy and brown, but still tastes great.
TRIPLE BONUS! I love when I have pulp from greens like spinach and kale. I juice these first, and then set the green pulp aside. Saute' it up in some olive oil with garlic, pine nuts, sundried tomatoes and throw some pasta and parmesean or goat cheese in.....dinner!

YAY! I love juice recipes and I just got a juicer pretty recently but I haven't tried anything yet. I know I know, slacker. I'm going to pick up some stuff for juicing this week, cannot wait to give it a go (finally!)

I love my new breville juicer (Santa brought it!). Question for you - what number setting do you use for kale and spinach! Thanks!

We've had our juicer 2 weeks and it quickly became part of our morning routine. Love it. Our favorite has been anything citrus, but lately it's been 1 cup cranberries, 1 orange, 1 grapefruit, a Granny smith and small slice of lime. It's tart, sweet and the prettiest color of pink.
