Daily Dose of Lovin'

Lately I have been drinking a smoothie/shake/juice/drink every morning. We get a vegetable/fruit basket every week now (organic alternates with regular) and I have been cooking a lot of veggies but also trying to not waste any of them either. Well, that has led me to peruse the Big 'Ol Web in search of recipes.
I discovered that actually all anybody that daily juices/blends/vitamixes really usually just tosses in whatever's there.

SOOO AN IRL friend who I talk with q morning suggested that I post what I am juicing. So I will be doing that starting today. On Saturday's I'll tell you what came in my basket for that week.
This past week was the following:
  • green onions
  • nectarines
  • plums
  • cantaloupe
  • lettuce
  • rainbow chard
  • zucchini
  • eggplant
  • bananas
  • kiwi
  • grapes
I think that was it.
I also got a 12lb bucket of honey (raw, local honey)

AND someone gave me a bunch of mint there.

My blend of the day today was:
  • 2 Cups of raw soymilk
  • 1 banana
  • 4 kiwis (1/2 skin on)
  • 4 mint leaves
  • honey (a good amount, maybe bout 1/4 Cup)
Awesome. The mint has really made a difference in a lot of dishes that I have made lately.
So now on to day two tomorrow!

You;re making me want to post my favourite smoothie type recipe! Oh and that honey... It's been a while since I've been able to buy honey in that quantity.
