Preparing for the all Organic Reboot (Kris)

celery soaking

Soak 5 to 10 minutes.

I spent the day focusing on drinking water and purchasing the boat load of fruits and veggies I would need for the juice fest that was about to begin.  For meals I enjoyed a delicious Healing Cabbage Soup prepared by my mother and had a nice big salad right before bed!

The Juicer:  I’m using the Breville Compact Juice Fountain.

The Produce:  What I bought: head of green cabbage, 2 heads of celery, head of romaine lettuce, 1 bunch of spinach, 2 bunches of green kale, granny smith apples, 3 danjou pears, 3 small beets, 3 red grapefruit, 2 large cucumbers, 0.3lbs of ginger root, 2 mangos, 2lbs of carrots, 4lb bag of juicing oranges, 2lb bag of lemons, and a pineapple.

Keep in mind that I buy only organic produce all of the time, I was pleasantly surprised at how little the bill was after a cart full of organics was ready to be made into some delicious concoctions.carrots

Total cost:  $83.00 – I also had limes, tomatoes, a jalapeno and some green apples at the house so I didn’t include them in the list above.

Preparation:  I immediately cleaned all the veggies as a time saver for later.  Vinegar will kill all the contamination and bacteria on the produce, so I soak everything in a cold water/vinegar bath for about 5-10 minutes, scrub (carrots, celery, cucumber), rinse, then lay out to dry.  Carrots need to be very dry for proper storage so I soaked and scrubbed them first then let them sit out until everything else was washed and put away.  To store, I lay everything out on paper towels, roll them up, and keep inside of a plastic bag, squeezing out as much air as possible.
