Juicing: Day 3- Beets are messy

 In lifestyle

Beets are messy.

Somehow I got beet juice on the wall.   I’m not sure how that happened.

I think I did a good enough with the clean up that my roommate won’t notice.  We’ll see if I get any texts later today about food Roshach images that I’ve left behind…

Beet Day:

  • 1 beet (med)
  • 2 carrots
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 2 plum tomatoes
  • 3 leafs of kale

The flavor of this juice is beet, beet, beet.  And carrot.   It’s good and fresh, but I miss the zing of yesterday’s lemon.  Hannah suggested I add ginger, which I may try to do tomorrow.

Tip: When I cleaned out the juicer,  all the kale leaves were stuck to the inside of the filter.  Next time I’ll add the kale first and hope that the other veggies push it through the masticator with a little bit more thoroughness.
