Day 3: Spinach, two strawberries, half a lemon (peeled), big chuck of ginger root, 1/4 cucumber, small apple, dollop of apple juice. Blend. Tastes like: good, really good actually. Strawberries are nice addition and the peeled lemon took away the bitterness of the non-peeled lemon.
Day 4: Spinach, two strawberries, half a lemon (peeled), one carrot, big chunk of ginger root, 1/4 cucumber, small apple, 1 tangerine, dollop of apple juice. Blend. Tastes like: even better than yesterday. I’m kind of out of balance with the fruit to vege ratio though. I did add a carrot which was missing from yesterday’s juice, so that helps. The strawberries and the tangerine definitely give it a nice juicy taste. Tomorrow, going to try to add a bit more greens to get a more even balance.
It’s not actually the end of my juicing, just the end of me talking about it – it’s really not that interesting I don’t think;) I did have to take a whack of antibiotics recently and I moved over to yogurt/fruit smoothies to put all the good stuff back in my body and that’s been tasty too. I bought some tart frozen yogurt at Fresh & Easy and use that in the smoothies which is really yummy.
I’ve found that it’s a great way to get veggies in my body that I wasn’t getting before, but I believe that by juicing them, I am missing out on the fiber benefit or something that my body would have by actually eating these veggies. Also, I imagine how full I would be if I actually ate all these veggies, but when I drink them I (1) pee an exorbitant amount, and (2) I am hungry within an hour.
