I picked up some goodies at the grocery store this morning and it’s only now occurred to me to share that I am – in no way – whatsoever – a cook. While it isn’t necessary to be one to create vegetable juices, it would be helpful to know how much of what to toss into the Ninja.
So, I’m guessing.
1/3 cup cucumber – peeled
2/3 cup broccoli
Handful of peeled baby carrots
Handful of spinach
1/3 of a big tomato
Three big squirts of lemon juice
One can V-8 followed by half a can of water
I said to myself “Jennifer, try to make it taste like a really nice bite of salad.”
Okay, so that didn’t work out.
This juice fast I’m following suggests that vegetable juices – as opposed to fruit – are better at convincing the mind that it’s filling. I’m not so sure I agree. I think quantity has something to do with how full I’m feeling.
Look at all that mushy greenness!
It’s actually not too terrible and I think the V-8 is doing the magic here. That and the lemon.
I’m going to have to remember to pick up more toilet paper at the store.
Time for a bike ride!
