I started the year with plans to cut down on the coffee. I drink too much of the stuff I dump sugar into it and repeat. This gives me the buzz at the time but later on I crash or worse still I can’t sleep. So I ended up finishing off all the coffee in the flat. I think there may be some decaff pods somewhere but erm .. decaff what’s the point.
So today I whipped out the juicer. It takes minutes to make a really nice juice. For the above I threw in:
- a few branches of celery
- 1 apple
- 1/2 a cucumber
- A decent sized chunk of ginger (1 – 2 cm cube )
Refreshing and tasty though a lot of people seem to have a problem with celery and it’s taste I love it. If I’d had any carrots around I’d have thrown one in as well.
While I get plenty of veg in the dinners we prepare I generally don’t go out of my way to eat any extra veg / fruit. I like to think this is a good way to get some and it’s quick too. The longest part is the clean up of the juicer.
