After watching Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, Derek and I decided we'd like to try the whole juicing thing out. However, because of our jobs, we're not able to do every single meal this way, except for the weekends. So our plan is to have a healthy, balanced breakfast and lunch, then juice for dinner. He's getting back into P90X and I'll be doing a hybrid of running and Insanity (I LOVE Shaun T).
We're going to try this out for 30 days and see how it goes. I'll keep y'all posted!
So today we started off with the Mean Green juice, and we're doing it for all three meals.
Apples - 2 medium (3" dia) 364g
Celery - 4 stalk, large (11"-12" long) 256g
Cucumber - 1 cucumber (8-1/4") 301g
Ginger - 1 thumb (1" dia) 24g
Kale - 6 leaf (8-12") 210g
Lemon - 1/2 fruit (2-3/8" dia) 42g
Process all ingredients in a juicer, shake or stir and serve. Makes 32 ounces.
Thumbs up! I wasn't sure how these ingredients would blend together, but it was actually pretty darn good.
So here we go. Thirty days of juicing for dinner. Wish me luck!!
