I didn't cook anything fabulous today — frozen flax seed waffles for breakfast, leftover burrito for lunch, and a salad for dinner. So I thought it'd be a nice day to post a picture of my daily juice. This morning, it was Apple Spinach Juice:
I threw one organic apple and a handful of spinach into my trusty Jack Lalanne juicer and voila! Fresh, tasty juice! I generally make fresh juice every morning to drink with my breakfast, unless the breakfast includes a lot of whole fruits (like when I have cereal or soy yogurt with fresh fruit).
On most days, juicing allows me to get in much of my fruit group. I've wasn't a big fan of fruit until I started juicing. Now I love it. Some days, I make orange-grapefuit. Others it's just plain ole' orange or carrot-apple-ginger. I'm a big fan of grapefruit-watermelon in the summer time when watermelons are everywhere down here. I also really dig fresh tomato or veggie juice in the summer when tomatoes are ripe and tasty.
I've just started incorporating more greens in my morning juice. I worry that I don't eat enough leafy greens, even though I totally love them. Apple-spinach is pretty darn tasty. The spinach doesn't have much taste, so it's most like fresh apple juice.
On a completely different note, I got a surprise in the mail today! It's my copy of "Papa Tofu," a cute little vegan cookzine by
Kittee Kake from New Orleans.
I can't wait to try the Chickpea "Fish" in Spicy Wine Gravy and the Crispy Crunchy Stuffed Tofu Pockets! I'm also excited that an entire half of the book is dedicated to sweets!
