After all the furniture moving that I mentioned in the previous post, I was feeling excited yet very tired. I was not really feeling in the mood to cook. Besides, it had taken way longer than we had planned to get the job done. I still wanted to make sure I could fit in a ballet practice session though. What was the solution? Green juice!
Whenever I’m not in the mood to have a meal (and all the preparation that goes into it, of course), I usually make myself a nice tall glass of juice. It’s like an immediate energy shot, except it’s also very nutritious. And it’s so much faster to get it inside myself than a whole plate of food.
In case anyone is every interested, this is my most frequently used juice recipe. (serves 2)
-2 large or 3 medium sized apples
-3-4 celery stalks
-around 8 carrots (depends on carrot size, if you want it to be sweeter then add more)
-a bunch of kale (I’ve never counted how much, but enough to fill a salad bowl)
– a few sprigs of parsley
– a couple broccoli stalks or florets
After drinking this juice, I usually find that I have enough energy to dance, go for a hike, or simply clean and organize my house!
