I’ve been focused on my health and I’ve recently started making my own juice after watching “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” on Netflix along with other documentaries regarding health. I must say that I enjoy making the juice, but it has been a challenge drinking it because of how it looks. The taste is tolerable for the most part. So, I have to use the juice in my smoothies to get past the look.
One thing I have noticed with using the raw juice is that my energy is up and I’m not as bloated in my belly.
Here is juicer that I have.
If anyone has any tips or suggestions about juicing please share. Talk to you soon!
It’s been a while since I have done a post about smoothies. I recently did a hug smoothie using a large blender. I was able to make about 4-5 smoothies out of that batch. I froze them until I got ready to drink them.
Here’s what I used: kale, cantaloupe, pine apples, and blue berries, and 2-3 tablespoons of flaxseeds. I froze all of fruit before blending. I used apple juice to blend everything. This smoothie had a lighter taste because I didn’t add bananas to them. I could really taste the cantaloupe and pineapples. It was very tasty. I had this smoothie right before bed and when I had to stay up late doing school work for added energy and extra nourishment.
I wanted share another smoothie that I made. I used fresh kiwis, blackberries, bananas, kale, and a teaspoon of flaxseed. This smoothie tasted really good. I am enjoying trying out different smoothies.
Hey everyone! I have been doing a lot more cooking and experimenting with veggies. I have recently added kale to my menu. I wanted to share what I came up with in my exploration of kale.
My first adventure with kale was cooking it with other greens like collards, mustards, and turnips. I am a fan of collard and mustard green. It is a southern dish that is usually cooked with pork (or turkey). Last spring, I search the internet for a vegetarian friendly version of cooking greens that still had the southern flavor. I found a recipe that I actually liked. After that, I took that recipe and changed it up a little made it my own. I took the butter element out and now it’s vegan friendly. By the way greens are gluten-free.
Last week cooked some greens using the following ingredients:
Not pictured is my olive oil and fresh onions.
The green were really delicious and tender.
My next endeavor was kale chips. I heard nothing but great reviews on how tasty kale chips are and I heard that they were easy to make. I made some this past Sunday using olive oil and salt. I have to say that they were okay. Not nasty or super delicious. I am a fan of potato chips, so I am kinda comparing. The chips are super thin and crispy. I let my parents try the chips out and they loved. I may try them again using other spices and seasoning.
On yesterday, I made a kale, strawberry, and banana smoothie. I added 1/2 teaspoon of flax-seed and some apple juice to help the frozen fruit blend well. I didn’t add my raw sugar.
I have to say that the smoothie was really good! I have tried spinach and other veggies before but I like how kale blended with the fruit I had. I will be trying kale out with other veggies and fruits in my smoothies.
I just wanted to share my kale experience. If anyone has any tips or ideas please share!
Here’s a snack smoothie I made yesterday with cranberries, strawberries, and blackberries. It was delicious, tarty, and healthy.
