Walking on Sunshine Juice

I got into juicing after watching “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead.”  Great documentary, and gave me the final push I needed to take the leap into juicing.  Many people do juice fasts, but in our house it is just a supplement to our diets.  Great way to pack in a lot of micro-nutrients, we do a ton of juicing if anybody in the house is sick.  Otherwise, we juice a few times a week to use up produce and get some extra fruits and veggies in.  Local toddler and I love green juices, but those are an aquired taste.  Walking on Sunshine is a great into to juicing.

Making two servings of juice is my usual mojo.  I usually drink some, save some for later, give some to local toddler, and make some popsicles with the leftovers.  I have a cheap juicer from Aldi, I eventually will get this Breville Juicer.  I really now have my eye on this Omega one on the recommendation of Grant.  If you are using a cheap juicer, the best way to get the most juice is to re-run the pulp.

The delightful thing about juicing, is that there is no recipe.  Just add whatever you like, but here is my basic recipe:

  • two oranges, peeled and quartered
  • two apples, cored and quartered
  • 1/2lb carrots, chopped in half
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped in half
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon

Throw everything in the juicer except the lemon.  I don’t like the flavor of the lemon when it goes through the juicer, so I squeeze it into the juice.

Drink up!

Also makes wonderful popsicles

Local toddler loves fresh juice, but he might like popsicles just a little bit more.
