I completely 100% gave into the juice craze, and now I'm whipping up a load of concoctions on the daily.
After a couple trial and errors, I've finally gotten the hang of juicing. I recently took the plunge and purchased a Breville. I'd been drinking a lot (a lot you guys) of juices at Whole Foods, and was frustrated when I realized how much I was spending.
I originally became interested in juicing after watching the documentary Sick, Fat and, Nearly Dead several years ago, but I hadn't totally bought into it. Drinking the juices at Whole Foods was an easy gateway into this addiction and when my friend mentioned how much he like doing 'ginger shots,' my interest more than piqued.
So for weeks I could not let the idea go of how badly I wanted to make my own wellness shots with ginger and turmeric root (some benefits include: digestion, inflammation, reduction in sore muscles etc.)
I picked the juicer that best fit my budget, clicked 'add to cart,' and two days later I had a shiny new machine to play with.
I've been making the ginger wellness shots a couple of times a week and I am totally hooked. Not only do they wake me up in the morning and give me the perfect burst of energy, but ginger has tons of added health benefits! Some days when I'm getting real crazy I sprinkle a dash of cayenne on the top before I shoot it (yum!).
I also have always loved Orange & Carrot, but had a couple extra beets lying around from a juice I made a few days earlier and thought i'd throw it into the mix. I actually really loved the outcome since the juice was not too beet-y thanks to the oranges and carrots.
2 organic lemons
1 'thumb' peeled ginger root
1 green apple
Beet, Carrot & Orange:
6 carrots, washed & peeled
1-2 medium beets
