I’m a member of Raw Food Rehab, an online community of people who are at various stages of moving to a healthier, organic and mostly raw diet / lifestyle. Penni Shelton is their queen and she’s evangelical but in the best way possible. She walks the walk. She’s the founder, developer, head cheerleader, recipe guru, organizer, extraordinary gift giver and whatever else needs doing in that castle. There’s an enormous amount of knowledge over there and I’ve only just scratched the surface.
Penni has written a bunch of books to help guide people in their raw journey. On Foodie Fridays she shares new recipes that make you believe one could possibly live without pasta, bread and cheese. Well maybe not cheese. No one has convinced me of that.
Today’s juice is adapted from her “Sweet Hot & Green.”
4 Red Apples
4 Stalks Celery
Large Handful Spinach
Handful Wheatgrass (if you have fresh)
1 Jalepeno (or less, depends on what you can take!)
Add to Blender:
Handful of Ice
1 TSP Wheatgrass Powder (if you don’t have fresh)
I had fresh kale instead of spinach. I tossed the super thick stem which I’ve heard can be bitter. I used five apples because they were tiny. This is surprisingly sweet but the jalepeno adds kick. I used about half the one in the photo. I should have used the whole thing, seriously. It’s that sweet!
Didn’t bother trying it on the husband and child. Steph can’t handle spice and I’m afraid to break trust with Coco and have her reject further offerings out of fear. Too bad for them, more for me.
