Green Juice

After my beloved..

local organic market had to close its doors, I bit the bullet and made the investment in a juicer. I’ve been excited to use lots of fruits, but really wanted to explore juicing with vegetables. I have to admit I’ve been a little reluctant in experimenting beyond carrots and spinach. So I searched around to find recipes that I could try, and hopefully enjoy. Just yesterday, I tried this green cocktail recommended by Martha Stewart – which is a mix of pear, apple, spinach, parsley, celery, cucumber, ginger and papaya to add a little sweetness. Overall I was delighted with the taste, however I did omit the parsley, switched out papaya for mango, and probably would add a little more ginger next time. I then came across Whole Family Fare, a beautiful blog run by mom and cook, Megan-Joy.  She features many great juice combinations, and vegetarian recipes that are now on my “to try” list. Not to mention the photography is gorgeous! I’ll definitely be documenting more of my juicing endeavors soon.
