My Breville Juice Fountain arrived today. A couple weeks ago, after seeing a friend’s Facebook post aboutFat, Sick, and Nearly Dead, I watched the documentary. My husband often tells me that I need to eat more fruit and vegetables, and I know that I do, but my likes are limited. Thus, the juice fountain.
It was waiting at the door when I got home from work. I unpacked it, played with its assembly, read the directions, looked up a recipe on the internet, and then went to the store. The husband is conveniently kayaking on the coast, so I had the whole place to myself. I could take my time making a mess.
I made an ABC:
- 1 apple
- 2 beets
- 3 carrots (I actually used 4)
- a piece of ginger (I’ll use less next time)
- 4 cups of kale (I included all the bits of lettuce my husband has picked from his garden)
The apple made the juice palatable; the ginger (which I don’t like) was a bit strong but gave it a bit of a hint of something that the juice would have needed. Clean up wasn’t that big of a deal, especially since I didn’t have to do anything but wash the food. I now have pulp to toss into our compost pile.
