It feels amazing to be back in my kitchen after 2 weeks away. I missed having fresh food and cooking utensils at my disposal. First things first, I juiced. Since Steve was in charge of the groceries while I was away – I found lots and lots of fruit in the fridge. Strawberries, blueberries, oranges, cherries, you name it. Kid sure loves his berries.
I saw a lone pineapple standing on the counter, and I began to crave sweet pineapple juice (so yummy on a warm summer night). The inner core of pineapple is pretty tough to eat – but it’s perfect for juicing! I love taking pieces of fruits or veggies that I normally don’t use and putting them towards a juice or a soup. Broccoli stalks, carrot and beet tops, and pineapple cores inevitably make it into my juicer.
1 broccoli stalk
6 large spinach leaves
4 1 inch spears pineapple (one of the ones I used was the core)
1 inch ginger
1 teaspoon hemp protein powder (optional)
Juice all the produce, alternating between fruits and veggies. Whisk in the protein powder and enjoy!
