The Family That Juices Together, Stays Together

Carrott/Kale with a Carrott/Celery Chaser



Kale Lemonade, My 2nd fave

Beet/Aloe/ginger/lemon/green apple - my fave.


We bought a juicer and we started out being a little obsessed with it like we do all our new appliances.  the bread maker, the rice maker...they are all in hibernation right now and the juicer is out taking center stage.  I feel kinda bad for the breadmaker, but it doesn't really support a gluten-free lifestyle.  I've never been a juicer but one day this gal at the gym convinced me to get a "liver cleanse" juice at the earth bar.  I was immediately taken by its hot fuchsia color and the big hit of ginger and lemon.  Plus, I'll admit I was a little hungski, and it was a "liver cleanse" after all.  Convinced I was doing the body good, a brought one home to honey and he started researching juicers ASAP.  We had one being sent by Amazon that very day.  Call us crazy but even if this trend only lasts a few short months in this household, those will be healthy ones.  So far, so good.
