January: A New Year to Try New Things!
Today begins the first day of a whole new year! Aren't you excited? I am!
This month I will be posting a lot more than usual because I have so many things I want you to try!
Start with this one, JUICING!
Since most folks are looking for ways to be healthier in the New Year, I suggest you try this!
Last year I asked for a juicer for Christmas and it's THE coolest contraption in my kitchen next to my food processor! I've even gotten my kids to try each one that I've made. They are brave, because some of them have been green!
Here is one of my favorite recipes that I got out of 365 Days of Juicing:
Carrot, Apple and Orange Smoothie
2 Apples peeled and cored
2 Oranges, small, peeled
14 Carrots, medium sized, cleaned peeled and blanched
Put the carrots, apples and oranges into the food processor and process until smooth. Add water as required to get the right consistency. Serve in a large glass with a slice of orange peel.
Now, this recipe is cool, but what's cooler is that I don't use my processor. I use a really great quality juicer. I just chop up my items (usually 4 large carrots) and the rest of the items and that's a wrap.
I have tried a whole bunch of juices and even tweak to make them my own. I actually enjoy making fresh orange or grapefruit juice also.
Happy New Year and Enjoy!
