This is getting juicy…

The first time I had a green juice was about 10 year ago.  I was with my friend Gelina at Whole Foods Market and she was getting one.  “I’ve never had a juice before.  Will you order one for me?”, I said.  Politely GiGi said; “It’s not gonna be like anything you have had before.  You may not like it.”  Not liking it was a MAJOR understatement.  Needless to say, GiGi finished it for me.  I could not get over how awful fruit and veggies could taste.  My V-8 juices were nothing like this!!   2 years ago at the Memphis Farmers Market I saw the So Fresh Mobile Juice Bar truck.  I decided to give it another try.  I went straight in with the A.B.C. (apple, beets and carrots).  I was not messing around.  LET’S DO THIS!!  It was absolutely delicious.  Before the farmers market season was over I had tried every juice on the menu.  After the market season, I found the Cosmic Coconut to supply my juice needs.  Then a light bulb went off, “get a juicer”.  I researched for several days and finally settled on the Breville Compact Juice Fountain.  When it came time to use it I was very nervous.  It felt almost like I was being initiated into a special club.

This machine has become my one true love.   It is easy to assemble and use.  More importantly it is easy to clean.  I use it just about every day. If you put a fruit, veggie or herb in front of me, I will juice it.  I get a burst of energy every time I make fresh juice.  It is the most wonderful feeling!!!  It’s as if I can feel my body getting healthier, stronger and an overall sense of well-being.  Here are a few of my creations.

Spinach, Cucumber, Lime, Celery, Green Apple and Ginger
