Green Juice


How can you blog about juice without talking about green juice? Of all the juices, this is the one I feel best about drinking. This recipe is a rough guideline, as I tend to throw in whatever I have on hand.

I usually make my green juice in a quantity that will last me 2 or 3 days. I knoooooow juice is best consumer immediately, but my juicer claims I have 72 hours, and I'm really too lazy to juice this one every day...though happy to drink it every day.

.
Sometimes this juice is my lunch, and sometimes its just an accompaniment or snack. I guess I'm just saying it has the potential to be meal worthy. 

I usually water down my portions of juice, both to stretch is out a bit longer, and because it's a very concentrated concoction, so sneaking in some water to dilute it doesn't hurt.

Ingredients:
  • 2 carrots

  1. I think juice is my favourite thing. Whenever I think I'm treating myself at the convenience store, it's because I'm buying a huge bottle of orange juice…
