I have a good friend that I met through blogging, Lisette from La La Lisette, and we talk pretty much daily. A while back she had mentioned she had started juicing since watching a documentary about the benefits (which I still haven’t watched.. I’m horrible at remembering to do things) and that piqued my interest in trying it out for myself.
I’d never juiced anything in my life. Luckily, the Big Boss Power Juicer makes it SUPER easy. The setup of the juicer is pretty straightforward and juicing things is almost like magic to me. You stick your fruits and veggies in the top and the super smart juicer knows what to hold back and what to spit out into your little juice jug. It’s so awesome! I was a bit afraid about putting harder veggies in- like carrots- but the juicer ate them up and spat the juice out like nobodies business. I’m in love with this thing.
Juicing has been amazing with all of the hot days we’ve been having recently. You know when it’s just SO hot that you couldn’t possibly eat a full meal? It’s been like that. A big glass of juice for lunch full of some of my favorite superfoods like kale and blueberries fills me up until it’s a bit cooler later on in the day and I can eat comfortably (it’s seriously that hot lately… we don’t have air conditioning OR a fan!).
Here are a few of my favorite juice combos lately!
Green juice: cucumber, apple, kale, lemon
Summer citrus: orange, lemon, grapefruit
Refresher: watermelon, apple, lemon
What are your favorite fruit/veggie combos for juicing?
