One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to use my juicer more! I bought an Omega J8003 Juicer a few years ago, but I only use it a few times a month. So I am trying to use it every 2 or 3 days now. Juicing is a great way to get more fruits and vegetables into your diet, and goodness knows I don’t eat enough vegetables! I keep buying kale, meaning to use it in juice and then finding it wilted in the back of the refrigerator a week later.
Today I threw out the kale (again), but I did find some spinach to use in my juice. I combined 2 apples, 3 carrots, about 2 cups of spinach and a 3/4 inch piece of ginger to make some juice for today. I don’t usually include ginger, and it added a very strong taste to the juice, that pretty much overwhelmed all the other flavors.
I guess when it comes to ginger a little goes a long way. Next time I will use only about a fourth as much ginger. It still tasted pretty good though, although my kids objected to the olive green color and were not willing to give it a try! They are not adventurous at all. Let me know if you have any great juice combinations I should try out.
