These past couple of weeks I've been a juicing mad woman. I can't get enough of the benefits my body is feeling not to mention my skin....and my soap.
After pigging out on cake and cream and sweets for too long I decided it's time to break the habit and get healthy. I've always been one for salad and fruits and wholesome vegetables and I do cook good meals for Matt and I at home, but I felt that I needed to change up my own diet.
I find it difficult to diet, I don't really need to do that anyways. What I basically wanted was a healthier intake of food and drink. I find it hard to 'eat' lots of fruit and veg so what better way to do it than to juice it all?! Pro's and con's there are but I feel better, I look better and to top it off the weight is coming off my middle!
How it all started...
I was scanning a second hand thrift shop in my home town for shelving for the workshop...oh and I also wanted a cafetiere so that I could enjoy good coffee as opposed to freeze dried crap. I found my cafetiere - a Bodum one for £3. BUT then I scanned some more and found a few little gadgets. I'm not one for kitchen gadgets usually, but on this day the prices were too good to walk away.
I found a juicer! Kenwood, brand new for £3! I mean, £3...! *snatched*.
I then only went and found a Kenwood Smoothie Maker - £5...so Matt has been enjoying Banana & Ice Cream smoothies! Can't say I'm jealous...I'm really not. Juice all the way...baby!
So...here's a few Instagram shots of my recent juices and what they contained.
Monday Juice - 2 Cox's Apples, 2 Celery sticks, 1/2 a Cucumber and 1/2 a Galia Melon
Tuesday Juice - 1 red Grapefruit, 2 Celery sticks, 2 Cox's Apples, 1 Beetroot & an inch piece of Ginger
Wednesday Juice ...now we're getting into
EXTREME ( ) juicing!
1 Cox's apple, 3 Celery sticks, 1/4 Cucumber, 1 Orange & several Spring Green leaves.
Ok..at this point I was thinking 'ack' but yep..surprisingly good with a very clean taste.
Now....what to do with all that pulp?????
