After spending two weeks in the motel, unpacking my juicer, setting it up and making my go-to drink, green lemonade, was a small step toward normalcy when I moved into the loft.
Rian reminded me of that when she posted about her new juicer and how she was putting kale through it. (Kale is surprisingly good when you juice it and terrifically good FOR you.) Green Lemonade is one of the recipes I've embraced from The Raw Food Detox Diet by Natalie Rose.
People reacted badly to my photo of the bright green juice the last time I shared it, so here's what it looks like before it goes through the juices: apple, lemon, ginger, kale and romaine lettuce. Pretty, right?
Another recipe I like a lot from this book is :
Raw Carrot Blended Renew
2 cups fresh carrot juice
1 ripe avocado
1 tablespoon curry powder
1 tablespoon fresh ginger
1 clover garlic
Bend all ingredients in a blender on high until smooth. (makes
Sometimes I just juice the carrots with ginger and garlic and stir in some curry and skip the avocado, like this morning–it's pretty colorful, spicy, sweet and tasty good, too.
