Veggie Juice Dinner

Hot weather makes me particularly dislike eating.  I can be starving hungry but nothing will strike my fancy so I usually end up eating mashed potatoes or pasta.  Again. 

Last night I was hot, hungry and not interested in food but knowing I hadn't come anywhere near my intake of good nutrition of the day.  So I grabbed some celery, a home grown carrot, half a giant cucumber, 2 plums and 6 oranges.  This all went through the juicer and straight into the blender where I added some ice, 2 big handfuls of baby spinach and a splash of blackcurrant and apple juice.  After blending it made just over a litre of juice for my dinner.

Delicious and nutritious (anyone finish and place the quote?!).

And now I'm hunting down more excellent juice combinations.  Any you can recommend? 

As a side note: the scrap bucket was by my feet as I was juicing and blending.  After typing the juice pulp into the bucket a certain puppy snuck up and ate a large portion of the pulp.  He loves his veggies too! 


  1. My favourite is a large handful of baby spinach, 2 oranges, one apple, 3 celery sticks with leaves, 2 carrots, 1 Fresh beetroot and a thumb size of ginger. I love it do much that I have stopped trying new flavours! I just LOVE it!!!!!! Try's yum! Ps I love your home grown carrot, fair effort. Someone put a photo on facebook of one they looked like a piece of string and was about 5 cm long lol!!!

  2. that carrot is fantastic!
    I don't really do the juice thing...but I got rejected giving blood cause my hemagloban was low and the thought of trying your spinach drinks did cross my mind...mine would have to focus on berries though!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a message. It's nice to know you were here!
