Striving to eat clean, wholesome foods, and lead a healthy lifestyle, in the real world.

It's Friday, which means that all the produce which remains in my fridge needs to be used, to make room for more. This week it's kind of a lot of stuff for some reason, and while some of them are good to eat on their own, like the cauliflower (steamed cauliflower...YUUUUUM), making something like a stir-fry or veggie soup out of the remainder might be a little weird. And the apples are only semi-firm and a bit manky...
What to do? Oh what to do??
Why, make juice of course!
It's really hard to make juice that is gross. I suppose it's possible, but I haven't done it yet, despite often throwing whatever is in the fridge together in a glass.
Juice #1 was an apple, and 1/2 a head of celery, leaves and all. I drank that right away, and it was delish!
Just #2 made a lot more than one glass worth, so I poured it into a carafe and put it in the fridge. This morning I had that, and poached eggs with hot sauce. I forgot to put ginger in it unfortunately, but it was still delish! I just love fresh-made veg juice with some fruit in it. It's so full of healthy goodness! About 30 minutes after that breakfast, I felt FANTASTIC. My body really thanks me when I pack it full of nutrients!!
