The most significant thing I did all day was create this mocktail. I was off and decided to have a not-leave-the-house-for-anything-but-fresh-air day. There was much blog reading, yoga doing, and cheesy song singing involved.
I fell in love with beets and nutmeg completely on accident last week when I added nutmeg to my juice bar purchase instead of my intended cinnamon. Here is my attempt at re-creating that fabulous mistake:
1 head romaine
1 large or 2 small beets
vanilla stevia and nutmeg
Juice vegetables and add nutmeg and stevia. I like quite a lot of sweetness and spice but feel free to adjust to your preferences.
I started a batch of homemade kombucha! I promised my kombucha recipe ages ago but after several failed batches I had to compromise and actually buy a kit. A few years ago I started my kombucha with a pre-made bottle from the store and it worked wonderfully, I don’t know if something changed or if I’m just forgetting how to do it but I finally decided to spend the money on a kit from Oregon Kombucha. I’m a big fan of freshly fermented kombucha, kefir, and veggies as they are delicious and a great probiotic source.
The cleanse continues. I had a big thermos of hot tea, a Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride and Tropic of Strawberry combo (thanks Celestial Seasonings), I can’t stop combining my teas! Magenta Mocktails and Wheatgrass-Spiked Carrot Juice were consumed throughout the afternoon, and dinner was a big salad with broccoli-goat cheese soup. I’ll have the soup recipe up shortly, it just needs a bit of tweaking 🙂
