I think I can officially call myself a juicer. Prior to January, I had an old juicer and was using it periodically, but stopping at the juicer (JuicyLeaf) in town more often than making my own. I decided with the snow coming, I could upgrade if I truly needed an new appliance (I may hoard appliances). So I gave myself a 30 day challenge. If could juice with my old juicer for 30 days I could upgrade. So I did and purchased a Breville and have not been happier! I juice almost every morning. At first I found it time consuming, but as time goes on I find it does not take longer to make a juice than a smoothie. I’m loving how well my body has responded to juicing too! I’m not a huge vegetable fan (many cause me to bloat raw) and juicing has not affected my system!
I often make sunrise fuel on Sunday mornings. I find this is a great detoxing drink with the grapefruit, mint and lemon! Saturday’s tend to be a day I’m exposed to dairy and the citrus helps flush my system and reduce my water retention quicker.
1 grapefruit peeled
1 lemon peeled
1/2 inch fresh ginger
1 cup fresh mint (stems are fine)
1 cup bib lettuce
1 green apple (skin on)
1/2 inch banana pepper
1/3 cup green cabbage
1. Place all ingredients through a juicer.
2. Enjoy your drink!!
*Please remember with any juice, you control the ingredients. Each juice can be changed to accommodate your taste buds. A great example is my husband enjoys this drink, but with 2 grapefruits in his sunrise fuel.*
