I spent one hour juicing my new organic share. It would have probably taken less time in a juicer, but I use my vitamix. This means I have to chop all my veggies + use a nut milk bag to strain the juice out. Here is what I used-
About 10 gala apples. 6 giant cucumbers 1 bunch of kale 1 pack of celery (ps don’t use the leaves..they taste horrible). 1 lb of spinach. 4 lemons rind removed Ginger. Carrots.
I just started throwing stuff together. I made mean green which is pictured below- Kale, Apple, Lemon, Ginger, Cucumber, and Celery. Oops! After it’s done blending. Time to strain! Finished product.I ended up with 64 oz of mean green, 64 oz of spinach/apple/celery/cucumber, 32 oz of veggie mixed, and 32 oz of carrot.
Today was organic share day! I decided last week to up my order and get a few extra boxes added. I ended up getting a mini share for 22 dollars, a snack pack attack box for 10 dollars, a staples box for 10 dollars, and a lb of spinach on top of my juicers share. Holy produce. Organic- 1 lb spinach, 2 zucchini, 2 bunches of kale, 1 bunch of rainbow chard, celery hearts, 2 mini bok choys.
Couldn’t resist snapping a picture of these heirloom carrots. So pretty!
Organic- Ginger, blueberries, tangelos, fuji apples, bananas, strawberries, and lemons.
Uhm…that is quite the banana!!!
I am semi overwhelmed by all of this, but I have a plan of attack. Eat all the things that will perish quickly first. Aka chard, greens etc. I will work this produce into every single meal. Total cost of all this was 72 dollars. I am super happy with that! It’s a lot of produce! Organic goodness. If we can’t eat it all, I will scale back and drop a few extra add on boxes. Wish me luck!!
I picked up box number 3 of my juicing share yesterday. I had to go to a new location. It was kind of annoying to get there! I chose a different location for next time! Here is what I got this week for 25 bucks.
2 large organic beets.
1 bag of organic fuji apples.
1 large bulk of organic celery.
1 box of organic baby spinach.
1 bunch of kale.
1 bunch of red chard.
A ton of fat carrots.
So we just picked up our first juicing box from Annie’s organic buying club. The club is super organized, and you can order everything you want online. There are tons of options and shares to choose, but we figured the juicing box would be perfect!
You can pick up shares weekly or bi weekly. I am weekly. The share costs 25.00 dollars. Here is what we received-
Rainbow Swiss Chard the size of my dog. Seriously This bunch of greens is INSANE.
Super fresh lacinato kale and romaine.
2 cucumbers, 5 pink ladies, 5 pears, and almost 1 lb of ginger!
Broccoli + 2 giant heads of bok choy.
All of this produce is organic and fresh. I feel like I got a super good deal on all of this. It’s impossible to find this kind of quality greens in the Florida Keys. I am a fan!
Expect to see these items in my juices really soon!
