Juicing is Fun

They say you become the 5 people you spend the most time with....

So I figure I will become,
1. Arnold (my bf)
2. Courtney (my boss)
3. My mom
4. My dad
5. Kizzy (The girl at the front desk of the Y)

I've already started saying things that Arnold says, like TRU and verbatim... 

My mom and I always end up with the same clothes.

I have a ton in common with my Dad, we both like motorcycles and Jeeps and carbs...

Not sure what I have in common with Kizzy, other than we are always at the gym.

And finally, Courtney.  She is an uber healthy eater.  I like fruits and vegetables and eating good-for-you noms, but her commitment to healthy eating could surely rub off on me a little more. 

She mentioned that she was getting a juice for Christmas, and I dusted off my old $5 juicer I got in college at some garage sale and started experimenting.

Surprise! I BOOKING LOVED IT!  (Have you seen that commercial where they replace the F-word with "booking"?  I saw it for the first time when I was watching TV with Arnold's grandma and it was booking awkward. 

Anyhoo, I haven't been too hungry today, probably because I ate WAY too much yesterday including Chinese buffet and a tenderloin.  wowza.  So after having a banana for breakfast and another banana for lunch, I got some soup from Gateway and fixins for a green juice.

The ingredients in this delish juice are:
Green Apple

I am obsessed with ginger, so I could have used even more than the dice-sized chunk I juiced.

Little tip for juicing: Add a green apple to anything and it will rock.

On another note, do any of you juice? What do you do with the pulp it spits out? I can't bring myself to throw it all out... I was thinking of using it in place of eggs or oil ala applesauce in a quick bread or something.  Ideas?


  1. Hmm, I dunno know about using the pulp. Do you think it has much flavor? Could you puree it into a sauce? Like a marinara?

  2. Sorry lady, no help here... When I read juicer I was thinking like a Hi-C juice box, or CapriSun. Then I thought maybe you went to some crazy "juicer" party where drinks were served with apple/orange/etc. juices. Obviously I was totally off mark.
