3 05 2013

I still haven’t conquered a ripe pineapple, nor replaced my berries, so my juice of choice today was the juice from Day 1, Food Matters Perfect Green Juice.

Although not all of my ingredients are organic, you can certainly see that the kale is!

I took the stems out of the kale tonight, and I didn’t notice any bitterness.  I did find half a lemon per serving a little overwhelming.  I found the juice really tart!  I used a little more fennel than suggested…about half again as much, so almost half the bulb for the two of us.  The flavor was great, I just won’t use quite as much lemon next time.   The cucumber made the juice refreshing, and the celery provided a natural “salt” seasoning.  This is a juice I can add to a weekly routine!
