Newbie – Juicing to Go

 When I know I have a busy week ahead, I try to plan meals in advance or pre make a few items to make meal times easier. When I know I am leaving town, I pre-pack little baggies of veggies to take along with me. Those little veggie baggies are either get gobbled up too quickly or go bad while traveling. I have come up with a new solution for myself. I am traveled on a three day trip last month and tried making a few juices ahead of time. It worked PERFECT! I was so excited to start each day with my juice. It helped me keep on track when eating out. I wasn’t starving and making poor food choices. VOILA! My perfect solution. This week I will be heading out of town again for a couple of days. 

Three days of Juice:


3 apples

3 bunches of kale

1 1/2 beets

12-15 large carrots

2 cucumbers

1 bunch of parsley

10 celery sticks

3/4 inch chunk of ginger

3 lemons

Finish product:

Fresh juice is always best, but juice last about three days before losing a significant amount of nutrients. I would rather have two day old juice than compromise and eat something devoid of nutrients. I am actually thinking of making this a habit. Making juice a few days ahead of time means I only get out the juicer three times a week instead of daily planning on it and then never getting to it. I am excited about this new option.  

Happy Juicing!
