Good Morning! Happy Tuesday everyone!
Today I drew a blank when I sat down to write a post. I am mid way through about 18 different projects right now, and may possibly need an intervention of some kind! I am like a ping pong ball at times, bouncing back and forth from project to project. My goal this week, is to SLOW DOWN, and focus on getting one thing completed at a time. (Probably not gonna happen though! Crazy ping pong-ing is just how I roll!) Maybe a more realistic goal would be to reign it in, and focus on the few things I KNOW I can complete this week! Does anyone else suffer from this crazy design ADD/OCD thing? Tell me I am not alone!
So, in the interest of a healthy, zen like focus today, I thought I would share the juice I made.
It is very refreshing, and is a nice change from my usual green juice. Plus, any time I drink my fresh juice, I feel like a million bucks! It's a great way to get a ton of nutrients quickly. Love that!
Carrot Apple Ginger Juice.
I use the Breville Juicer. I talked about it in my Delicious Green Juice post.
Here are the ingredients. I use organic fruits and veggies. Wash everything, and slice lemon in half, core apple, and top carrots. (Though you could juice carrot tops, I think, but I don't.)
I used 2 granny smith apples, 1 gala apple, 8-10 carrots (depending on size, mine were not that big), 1 lemon, and a hunk of ginger. If you are new to juicing, I would suggest using about half this amount of ginger. It's got a lot of zing to it. I use a lot, since it keeps inflammation in the body at bay. Chronic disease, like autoimmune diseases, cancer, and so many others need inflammation in the body to thrive. Ginger is an excellent anti-inflammatory. And, as a cancer survivor, I strive every day to eat tons of anti-inflammatory veggies and fruits.
This was truly the best thing my husband EVER brought home. Believe it or not, I was reluctant about it!
Fresh juice is ready in under a minute. NOT kidding!
The **KEY** is to use LOTS of ice. It is soooo much better when it's super cold!
It usually makes between 20 and 25 ounces. I drink a large glass, and my son a small glass. He loves it, by the way! He drinks the green juice I make also! Not bad for a picky 5 year old! That should give you an indication of how yummy it is!
If there is any left over in the pitcher, I give us a small re-fill.
Maybe this will give me the razor sharp focus I need, in order to prioritize my projects today!
Really, please tell me I'm not the only ping-pong-er out there!??
Here's to a productive, fun day!
See you tomorrow!
