|Love this thing.|
I think it is important to include a leafy green in your juices if you can manage it. I always include spinach or kale in my morning smoothies (when I'm not on a juice fast) and I've been sure to include them in each of my juices so far. They are pretty much flavorless when combined with the other ingredients!
For lunch I wanted to keep a balance between the fruits and the vegetables. Once again, I didn't use a particular recipe; I just used what produce I had available. Lunch included the following:
|So much green goodness!|
Kale (5 stalks)
They say that the more colorful your meal is, the better it is for you. I think that this lunch just might win the award for me!
I don't really like beets, but I love to juice them. They are by far the most colorful vegetable. SO pretty! Even the remnants from the beet after juicing are gorgeous!
Here's a nice shot of what my juicer looks like during the process. On the left side there is a container for the waste material that the juicer kicks out. On the right, you can see all the lovely juice I drank for lunch. Talk about a tie-dye lunch!
Obviously, you'll want to mix up the juices before you drink it so that the flavors combine into something a lot more delicious. I also scoop the foam off the top of the juice mix. You don't have to, but I do it because the foam bothers me. I'd rather just drink the pure liquid!

|Love the color!|
|Love my juicer! Did I mention that already?|

I also added ice cubes to my drink (after taking this photo). There is something about a drink being ice cold that makes it all the more enjoyable. I rate today's lunch as a 4 out of 5. Check back tonight for dinner's review!
