Sweet and Spice Green Juice

My favorite item at the Farmers Market this year has been pea shoots and it turns out they make a delightful green juice! Paired with jicama and ginger this juice is slightly sweet and as spicy as you want it.

Spicy Black Bean Spread

My dietary experiments have gone through multiple evolutions, taking twists and turns here and there, juice fasting, cleansing, branching out to try things I’ve never had before, and going through stretches of just not caring. I grew up vegetarian and some things that I really missed when I got into a simpler,  cleaner way of eating were beans and tofu. So after several years of cleansing and leaving them out I started eating them again for a period…and it was alright. I don’t digest them well and they weigh me down after awhile but I can’t say I won’t ever eat them again. I’m currently avoiding them because fussing with digestive upset isn’t of interest to me and greeeeeeens and green juice are way higher on my list of things that make me feel good.

However, my wifey made a special request and cooking for her is one of my favorite things on the planet. I basically threw this together with ingredients we had lying around and it was a huge hit. In cases like this I always have to ask Is it good? Like blog-worthy good?” – and this one got the go ahead. Brit likes spreads  like this for sandwiches, wraps, and pitas and today used a portion as dipping sauce for home baked potato wedges.

Garlic Cilantro Savory Green Smoothie

I’ve become such a lazy blogger in the last few weeks. I definitely may have burnt myself out after the frequent juice feast posting. I’ve been playing again with a low sugar way of eating and am currently loving it! Ever since I started making savory jicama juices during the juice feast I dreamed of blending in an avocado for a creamy soup. Well the dream has finally been realized and the result was fabulous! I had a jar of this creamy goodness for lunch yesterday but I’m thinking it would also be great chilled as a side soup to a crispy dinner salad!

Garlic Cilantro Savory Green Smoothie

Ingredients:

2 jicamas

1 bunch cilantro

1 lemon, peeled

2 cloves garlic

1 ripe avocado

Run jicama, cilantro and lemon through the juicer and blend with garlic and avocado until creamy.
