When it comes to juicing or just getting good nutrients into your body, anything goes!
This morning I had my straight celery juice and then shortly after had this combo. How did I come up with it? I opened the fridge and voila… I picked from some things that were in there. Romaine Lettuce, 3 large pineapple spears, a piece of lemon I needed to use up, an orange, and then I grabbed a small sprig of mint from my indoor mini herb planters. I threw it in my juicer and it was delicious!!!
You really cannot go wrong. I often smile when I see the endless juicing books out there. Sure they are great for ideas and targeting health benefits but in all reality just take some things that are good for you and throw them in! Anything goes! Get creative.
This was my second round of juicing today… some gel from my filleted aloe leaf, strawberries, and apple. Once again it was yummy!
Recently I did a cooking demo at an Esthetics School and we were making Hemp milk. I accidently dropped in an extra date and more vanilla than ‘my recipe called for’. It was perfect. I told the class that it does not matter… throw in more, less, other things, change it up…. anything goes. Adapt and adjust as you go along. It’s all good.
Most of all have fun with adding in more nutrients and en-JOY! #nutritionIStheMission

On a side note, many of you have asked me about the best juicer. While there are many juicers out there and I have tried several smaller ones that I have picked up at thrift stores, I was lucky enough to get one of these Hamilton Beach 800 watt ones at a thrift store brand new. I loved it so much that I just yesterday, bought a second one from Lowes to have at my beach house where I work. I love this juicer. It’s easy to clean, has an amazing yield and saves me so much time. I really think it’s the best value for a mid-range juicer.
