The day in the kitchen...Green Juice

Saturday, May 25, 2013

The day in the kitchen...

First I had to clean and cut all the fruits and veggies. That took over an hour...whew (I started around 2 pm)

I had apples, pears, navel and clementine oranges, strawberries, pineapple, carrots, small cucumbers, kale, bok choy, rainbow chard, parsley, celery, broccoli stem.

Now I get to juicing.

Green Juice

First I juice the fruit, apples, pears, navel and clementine oranges, strawberries, pineapple (one big jar goes to my friend) and I have about one cup of fruit at this point.

I take out all the fruit pulp out and put in a bowl.

Next I juice carrots (around two pounds) And then take out the pulp and put in a container for a carrot soup.

Now I juice the five cucumbers and add the pulp to the fruit pulp.

The last veggies are the greens kale, bok choy, rainbow chard, parsley, celery, broccoli stems get juiced.

I put the veggie pulp in a container.

I end up with two jars of green juice.

Now to make smoothies with the pulp.

To be continued...

    I like the way you save the pulp for other things. It would seem like a big waste otherwise. With making the soup and and juicing - you were in the kitchen most of the day - but sounds like you have plenty for later use. (I love leftovers!)

    I have a green smoothie every morning with similar ingredients, in the vitamix. It leaves the fiber in, but tastes good.

    That does sound like a lot of work. I get tired of being in the kitchen all the time. I much prefer to be doing other things. That is probably my biggest problem with losing weight...I hate to cook...I can cook and do well at it, I just don't like to.

    I used do juice a lot, but waste of pulp made me stop juicing. I will appreciate if you would tell me the ways to use pulps. Thanks.
