Life is getting juicy….

So it’s been a while since I’ve had any significant free time to play with……and its AMAZING how much m ycreative “juices” are flowing.  It’s like calling upon faculties that have been dormant for the last month and reignighting a passion for life, cooking, and creativity.

In fact, my schedule is so bendy that I actually had time for one of Matt’s friends to stop by last night to do some juicing.  Yay, there is one other person on the planet here in Davis who is willing to listen to me ramble on about how awesome juicing is.  We contrived to make two juices: one for him and one for me.  I was tickled.

The concoctions:

Henry’s “better that Trader Joe’s carrot Juice:

7-8 organic carrots
3 lemons
1 mango (secret weapon)
1 fuji apple

Alternate juicing carrots with the other fruits.  He called it his carrot lemonade – a rightful title, as it has a lemony punch for certain.

Rebecca “Flower Power” surprise:

1 bunch of dandelion greens (hence the name)
1 lemon
1 fuji apple
1 beet
1 small bunch parsley

Fold th dandelion greens and push them through with chunks of apple or beet.  Do the same with the parsley.

The surprise comes in the bitter ‘kick’ at the end from those darn dandelions, but it’s just weet enough for you to actually want more 🙂 You’re liver will thank you for this one!

    Competitive eating…Crazy! From time to time I see man vs. food on the food channel & it makes me so sick! This guy looks more and more inflamed and unhealthy after each episode. I just don’t get it!

    On a happier note…it makes my heart and liver sing to know that you have a juicing buddy in Davis!! 🙂
    I am going to play around with my juicer tomorrow & juice some of the collards & beets from the garden; fun!

    I miss you so & I’m looking forward to seeing you this week!!
