When I got up take a second crack at Tuesday, I decided that it was as good a day as any to embark on one of my new adventures for the year: juicing. Fruits and veggies, not steroids. I ran across a "detoxing" recipe that's supposed to be helpful when fighting a cold, so I started with that one:
4 celery stalks
one small cucumber
one small apple
The recipe also called for 1 beet, which is *obviously* not happening. I added a chunk of ginger, or at least I think I did -- I know that I peeled it, but I have no memory of putting it into the juicer, and thought I'd sat it on the counter. But, it's nowhere to be found, and the juice does have a little bit of a gingery sharpness to it, so I'm guessing it's in there.
I was skeptical about drinking vegetables, but it's surprisingly tasty. Though I suspect it would be tastier with a shot of vodka in it. I don't really care for Bloody Marys, but I always want to like them -- it's like they're almost delicious, but not quite. Now, I wonder if a Carrot-Ginger Mary would work...
But I digress. New year, new adventures. I've moved; I'm still looking for a job and trying to figure out a new direction; being unemployed sucks, except for the part where you can just go back to sleep if you wake up feeling sick; and my first attempt at juicing was successful enough that I'll keep doing it.
And happy new year.
