The sun is shining. The birds are chirping. The gray chunks of disgusting curbside ice are dissipating ever so steadily, and rather than layering in 18 articles of clothing, I’m down to maybe 9 or 10. I’ve learned letting my bitterly cold, wintry guard down in Pittsburgh often results in a blizzard in my un-scarfed face, but I’m starting to embrace the potential for spring ever so cautiously.
As the newly revealed muck transforms to bright greens, here’s a sipper to match the preliminary signs of spring popping up around us [unless of course, you’re one of the fortunate/smart ones to live in a consistently sunny, springy locale].
Spring Greens Juice
2 organic hearts of romaine
2 organic zucchinis, peeled
1 organic heart of celery
~4 oz ginger, peeled
2 heads of organic broccoli
6 organic d’anjou pears
Combine according to your juicer’s instructions.
Juice of the Week documents my goal to drink fresh juice daily (made in batches weekly).
