Yesterday my friend Jenn came into the bakery and gave me 3 big cucumbers. I actually haven’t ever LOVED cucs – they make me gag sometimes. I don’t like the texture. But one thing I do love to do with them is juice!!! Then I get all the cool flavor and none of the seedy mush.
This morning – I almost didn’t – but I did. I ran 3.75 miles!! It was COLD outside!! Only in the 60s and I had a pretty good run. I did a different route than normal [= more hills] but enjoyed the scenery. At one point I almost wanted gloves! Too cool. Too cool.
Back at home, I dusted off the juicer and got out the goods:
Cucs, celery, carrot, lemon, ginger and watermelon. Great combo!!!
Cucumbers are the best food to juice because they are CHEAP and yield a lot of liquid. Check out how much just the cucs made!
And then the rest (I also love celery for this reason. Kale = not so cheap to juice for such a tiny spurt of liquid)
Rainbow sherbet (which I have and always will pronounce “sher-bert”)
I located my biggest wine glass – an extra, extra large and poured it all in. Still had some leftover!
It was a lot to drink, but it went down fast. I figured juice would be good before a massage! Although…I hope I don’t have to go to the bathroom during it!
But of course, vegetables alone do not a breakfast make. I also had a slice of Cinnamon Raisin Walnut with PB&J and some berries + mango on the side.
And before my run: Cville Cluster Granola + watermelon to get the gluclose juices flowin’!
I’m biking downtown, getting kneaded, having lunch and then headed to the bakery for the afternoon.
Have a great Thursday!
