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.
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...
