the morning juice

My new morning routine is a large glass of fresh juice (yes admittedly I've strayed a bit from the soygurt and seeds breakfast due to this, but I'm just so smitten with the juicer!). I firmly intend to stick with it - to be honest I haven't seen any major changes in my mood or perkiness, but I'm thinking it most likely will take more than a week. Not that I'm exactly in a bad place moodwise, but still, Scandinavian winters are tough of the soul - because it's such a lovely lovely thing with a daily fresh vegetable (no juice without at least one carrot!) and fruit juice. At least during this bleak time of the year, when sunshine and natural perk me uppers like that are scarce.

My favourite is still the carrot ginger one. But I also quite enjoy carrots and apples.

I've blended a handful of frozen blueberries and raspberries with carrots and apples.

Carrots, apples, oranges or 

carrots, apples and blood grapefruit are treats in their own ways.

Today I made my first beetroot juice, 5 small beetroots, 2 apples, 1 orange, 1 carrot. It was nice, but next time I think I will take less of the beetroots, because it was a bit too earthy for my taste.

The juicer is really easy to clean, so it's an easy routine to keep I think. Hopefully.

Yummo. And the beet juice is a glorious colour.
