I have been intrigued for a long time by the allure of juicing. People all around me have been juicing (every time I say “juicing” I think of using steroids instead of juicing fruits and vegetables but to be clear I am talking about the latter) and its seemed like such a mystery. Last week, I was walking around TJ Maxx and I saw TWO juicers for great prices. I read the reviews on both of them online and they were about the same and so it came just down to asthetics so I went with the red one!
As far as I am concerned, this juicer already looks great! And now to procure fruits and veggies!
I can already tell that this is going to be an expensive but colorful endeavor! Annnndddd let’s get to juicing…
Once I had made my juice, I realized I need to figure out some way to store them — MASON JARS!
And then, I had the truly inspired idea to paint the lids with chalkboard paint so that I could keep track of the different juices I made AND reuse the jars! Project time!
Chalkboard paint is clutch to have hanging out in your craft corner/room/box/cave. You can paint it on all sorts of things to upgrade them and their usefulness. AND it dries quickly. The ADD kid in me needs the instant gratification.
I ended up making three juices my first day out there…
1) Tropical – Pineapple, Kiwi, Grapefruit, and Apple
2) Cleanser – Apple, Carrot, and Spinach
3) Ginger Citrus – Lemons, Grapefruit, Apple, and Ginger
I am going to have the best time figuring out new recipes and trying new things. This is just the beginning!
More juicing adventures to come…
