Happy Monday to you!
I am aboard a plane to sunny (or maybe not) California this morning. There are lots of things going on right now but I did manage to have a nice family weekend. We had a fun Friday evening visiting our Grandmother, a visit to the house build on Saturday along with a visit to the Vet College Open House. Yesterday, we had a birthday party to attend. I hope to get a lot accomplished throughout the week regarding zesty and all the blog makeovers that are on my list. I also have another pretty big announcement to make in the very near future.
I was out at the house talking to a few contractors on Saturday and trying to get everything organized for the week I am gone. I added some updated pictures at the bottom of the post to keep you up to date on the progress.
Back to the food… or juice! We bought a juicer back when I was on a big juice kick . It faded away the last little while but I wanted to share with you a fun juice to have when you are craving something a little different.
Carrots are a great way to get into juicing…. they are a great staple for any juice recipe. They provide a good base to mix in and experiment with other vegetables. They are not too sweet and not too bitter.
- 1/4 inch piece of ginger
- 1 apple
- 4 carrots
- Cut the ginger leave the skin on.
- Core the apples.
- Slice off the tips of the carrots.
- Put through juice extractor.
Zesty Tip: A lot of people tell me that the juice that comes out of the juicer is too warm – I totally agree. I like to add the juice to an ice bath after I make it for about 15 -20 minutes to reduce the temperature of the juice. Try it!
Thanks so much for reading and I hope you have a great day. I will be on the road all week but I have a couple of guest posts lined up for the next couple of days.
