So, I’ve been juicing pretty much daily throughout the summer and have finally found my favorite, go-to juice! When others find out that I juice, I usually get the question, “What do you put in your juice?” Most people want a juice that doesn’t taste like they’re drinking a salad, which I totally get. I think I’ve found a good balance that doesn’t come off too “green” for the newbie juicers.
The other common question I get asked is, “What juicer do you use?” We have a Breville Juice Fountain Elite. I love it and find that it’s not too difficult to clean. I will admit that after the first few juices, I dreaded the cleanup. But, after getting into a routine, it was much easier and didn’t take much time at all (3 minutes.)
1 large handful of kale
1 large handful of spinach
1 small bundle of parsley
1 handful of mini carrots
1 medium chunk of ginger (I usually cut off about 1/2”-3/4” off the root)
Things I do to make my juicing faster and easier:
- Buy the spinach and kale prewashed mix at Central Market. Cleaning lettuce is probably one of my least favorite things to do, so this makes it much easier!
- Wash fruits and veggies ahead of time for the week and bag separately for easy access each day.
- Put a bag in the barrel so you don’t have to clean it constantly. It’ll make excellent compost!
