Juicing: Fridge dregs

 In lifestyle

So I return from Mexico and to my beloved juicer, excited to rev up the Hurom to start off another great day.

However, I’ve been in Mexico for a week, so you can imagine the state of the contents of my fridge.

Basically, all that’s available is the tough stuff.  You know, the veggies that take about a month to go bad.  Like when you find potatoes tucked away in a cupboard from 1996.  Sure, they’ve sprouted little babies and they’ve gone a bit soft, but you have to give them credit – they’re still almost edible.

So my stalwart, fibrous veggies save the day!
