Yesterday I made the plunge into juicing.
I decided instead of lunch, I’d have a juice.
I was a bit nervous to try my first one, it was really green.
So, I decided to video it so I had to drink it and y’all could see my reaction.
It didn’t smell great but it tasted great.
I’m not a huge fan of ginger so I would take the ginger down a notch next time.
I managed to figure out how to take apart and clean my juicer, which was surprisingly quick and easy.
I’m a food person and so I was shocked to see that hours later, I was still not hungry.
- 1 large cucumber
- 3 celery ribs
- 2 green apples
- 1 inch fresh ginger
- 1 small zucchini
- half of a peeled lemon
- 6 kale leaves
- Peel lemon and chop veggies to fit thru the hole.
- Juice and drink!
- ~ for a sweeter juice, remove the zucchini and add 1 carrot
This morning I was all prepped and ready to go, the hubby got to try his 1st juice too.
This morning I removed the zucchini and added 1 carrot and cut back on the ginger.
I’d say it was much better, but that implies that I didn’t like the 1st juice…and I did.
So, I would say that this is a slightly sweeter juice due to the addition of the carrot.
The hubby was pleasantly surprised, I could tell by the look on his face.
For now our goal is one juice in the morning.
Originally, I was worried about how my blood sugar would react to the juice…
But apparently it loves it.
Shockingly, I require NO short acting insulin.
And since I have stubborn morning insulin resistance, this could be the best thing ever for my breakfast.
Our plan is to do a juice only day this weekend…
I’ll update y’all on how that goes on Monday!
