Good morning and happy Thursday!
Yesterday was a great work day! It was super productive and went by rather quick. I went by the Plant City office for a couple hours, and then spent the remainder of my day in South Tampa. I had a great brainstorming session over lunch with a recent new hire for our marketing department. We went to Red Elephant Cafe (which is quickly becoming a new favorite of mine) and I had the veggie wrap with a small cup of fruit on the side.
Lunch was very tasty, but it didn’t fill me up as much as I would have liked. I wasn’t feeling all that well leading up to 5; I left right at 5 and on the way home got hit with a hunger headache. I grabbed an avocado and clementine as soon as I walked in the door and got to work on what I really wanted… a fresh juice.
This is the point where I step on my whiny soapbox.
Juicing is a pain in my butt and can really piss me off! Seriously…it takes a good 30 minutes to get everything prepped, juiced, and cleaned up. I overloaded the juicer today so I had a gross mess to clean up. Like really gross! By time I got that mess cleaned up I just wasn’t feeling it anymore. The taste was fine it just had a bite to it that didn’t hit the spot, so… I threw in the towel. 😦
Today’s juice recipe…
What you’ll need
- 2 handfuls baby carrots
- 4 celery stalks
- 1 large bunch kale
- 5 plums
- 2 oranges
- 1 sweet potato
- 1 apple
- 1 lemon
- Juice all ingredients
- Pour through sifter to remove clumps
- And, enjoy!
I spent the rest of my night decompressing with some Friends (episodes), and nibbling on some fruit and veggies.
Questions of the day
Does juicing ever frustrate you?
Do you drink any bottled juices?
—I may try this again for my breakfasts during the work week, and leave the more time-consuming juicing process to the weekend.
Anyone else get on their whiny soapbox today?
