glorious juice

i've been at my boyfriend's place this weekend so i took these photos before i left to share them with you now, since otherwise i'd have nothing to show ya today. sadly his little kitchen does not have the room nor does he have the budget for all the wonderful equipment my family has in OUR well-endowed kitchen; like an omega juicer, vitamix blender, dehydrator, food processor, mandoline, and so on.

i mean, technically you don't NEED any of those semi-expensive appliances to enjoy a raw vegan diet, but it sure makes it more fun and interesting. case and point: raw pasta. they're all worth buying if you can afford them, but if not - simple fruit bowls and salads rocks too! personally, i gotta have my juice... and so does my cat, sugar, apparently.

enjoy this recipe and the good health and happiness it brings!

colourful concoction juice: serves one or two

3 carrots
1 cucumber
chunk of ginger
1 tomato
1 lime
1 bell pepper
4 beets
1 green apple
1 orange

wash, cut, slice and peel as needed. juice it and drink! mmm... live 4 juice; juice 4 life!

 one last thing - don't you love everything about compost? (except maybe the fruit flies...)

Yumm! Awesome looking juice. Do you have a lot of your "meals" in liquid form? Or do you have solid food throughout the day as well? I've been criticized before as "drinking my dinner" or whatever, as if its a bad thing! I'm just wondering if you have mainly liquid based (juice,smoothies) during the day and then solid at night or if you mainly have liquid based meals.

LOve your blog!

It varies with the seasons and my exercise regime but right now I am noramlly drinking juice in the morning, fruit in the mid-day, a green smoothie after my workout, as another meal, or for dinner. my family almost always east vegan but some it's also always cooked so sometimes my body would just rather have a green smoothie for dinner... it definitely does single me out - but hey, it's worth it :) be proud of liquid meals!
