In case you are unfamiliar with the term “Irish Flu,” it’s a sickness one experiences on March 18, after celebrating St. Patrick’s Day by imbibing one too many green beers. Fortunately for me, I do not have a case of the Irish Flu today (and no one else at Quilts Inc. does either), but since our staff is getting ready to embark on Quilt Show season with our first show about three weeks away, it’s time we build or strength and stamina, beginning with a healthy, vitamin- and antioxidant-filled juice drink!
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I made sure we focused on ingredients that would yield green juice…
Why do I personally like to juice? I am bad about remembering to eat my fruits and vegetables every day, so juicing gives me a leg up. There are also vegetables I don’t like to eat, but they taste pretty good in a blended juice. Plus, juicing is a great idea before embarking on a long machine quilting session at your sewing machine as it will keep you energized and sated for hours. Some of my favorite fruits and vegetables to juice include (and yes, I mix them all together):
Beets (But be warned, this will make your juice bright red!)
I use a Hurom Slow Juicer, which separates the pulp from the juice:
Before drinking, it’s a good idea to stir the juice with a spoon to make sure the fruits and vegetables are blended.
Pokey, this is great! I love juicing and now do it everyday. I appreciate you answering a few of my questions in January about what that full plate of vegetables was all about! I’m thinking about getting a masticating juicer next as a back-up, so will look into the Hurom Slow Juicer. Happy Quilting Monday! ~Kd
I love juicing! nothing better than green juice. 🙂
That is so funny, I was just sitting here with the taste of a green juice in my mouth. Craving some greens I suppose. I guess it’s a sign that I need to get the rest of what I need when I go to the grocery store in a little bit. I make it in my blender though, so it takes a little more time to get all the seeds out before blending.
