vegetable juice

Back when I first went vegan in 2010, I started by drinking fresh fruit/vegetable juices. Here are my notes from those 4 days of juicing…

July 19:

Tried some new experiments today. Watched video where guy said to add fats to your juice to absorb all its  nutrients.

Started the day with 1 lemon (with peel), 1 large (two thumbs worth) ginger shot.

The juices I made were:

  1. 3 leaves kale, 3 large carrots, 3 fuji apples, 1 tbsp. coconut oil
  2. 1/2 beet with greens, 4 green apples, 1/2 inch slice lime, 1 ginger piece (two thumbs)
  3. 1/2 bunch full celery stalks, 3 green apples, 1/2 lemon with peel, 3 kale leaves, 1 tbsp whole flax seeds

The coconut oil clumps up in the juice and makes it very unpleasant. The flaxseeds just sink to the bottom.

[ Sorry, I forgot to take a picture of the juices! ]

The back two (blue caps) each consist of: 1 cup fresh coconut water, 4 celery stalks, 2 kale leaves, 2 green apples, 1/2 lemon (including peel), 1 thumb size piece of ginger.

The front, purple juice, contains: 1 large beet, 3 fuji apples, 1 thumb size piece of ginger, and 1/2 inch slice of lime (with peel). The front right juice contains: 6 cups spinach, 2 kale leaves, 3 fuji apples, 1 thumb size piece of ginger, 1 cup broccoli, and 1/16 cup chopped parsley.

The back right juice is strictly carrot only.
