The Joy of Juicing

Because I am now a proud owner of few extra pounds, I decided to eat healthy. I am now into juicing. I cut back my coffee, tea and soda intake. I make my own fruit and vegetable juice. There are many recipes or fruit and vegetable combination that can be found on Google. 

Lucky me, I don't need to buy a juicer because I found an old Imarflex juice extractor just sitting at the cabinet. I tried it and it still works. If you don't have a juicer, a blender will do. Just strain the juice after to separate the pulp. Some were saying that we need the pulp as it contain the fiber we need. For me, it's just a matter of preference.

And I search for juice combination recipe around the whole wide google and I found so many. But some ingredients are hard to find here in the Philippines so I just made a substitution. 

Here are the juices I made for the past weeks. Sometimes, I add a little bit of sugar and water for better taste. i love sweet things you know.
