My family bestowed upon us a juicer for Christmas and since then we’ve gone very few days without making a little green glass of goodness. M wakes up from her afternoon nap and often her first words are not, ‘hi momma’ or ‘love you’. No no. It’s ‘juice’. So straight away, we get to chopping, washing and prepping fruits and veggies for juicing. We’ve taken a few of our favorite recipes and converted them to what is now a daily afternoon treat.

M’s Favorite Juice ||
2 Apples
1 Orange
1/3 Fennel Bulb
1 inch Ginger
2 large Carrots
4 Celery Stalks
1/3 a large Cucumber
Slice of Lemon
Several handfulls Spinach or Kale

I have to say that although delicious and seemingly health conscious, juicing is a little bit of a commitment. The prep and clean up (not to mention the cost of all these ingredients) can be time consuming and I often dread washing the machine every night. I’ve read that storing homemade juice isn’t the best idea so we try to make it fresh daily but every once in a while, we cheat and make an extra pitcher to store in the refrigerator for the next day.  Either way, I will say that I feel much better when we stick to our juicing regimen and would recommend it to anyone who can stay committed to the process.

If you have any juicing recipes to share, please please leave them in a comment for me!

Enjoy! Melissa

  2. This is totally fascinating. Lots of very mainstream historians have been writing about the conversos lately (MacCulloch covers them in both of his gigantic books of the last decade), but I ha1en&#82v7;t seen anyone suggest that there might have been communities of conversos on this side of the Atlantic. Thanks for this post.
