Saturday Mix | Juicing It Up

Saturday Mix | Juicing It Up // by Faring Well #vegan #recipe

Hi there! We’re chatting, and its Saturday, isn’t this fun? After having such a great time with the Saturday Links posts earlier last year (fave being this one) and the Simply Saturday posts this past fall (another fave) I decided I’d combine the two into one! Because I’m snazzy like that and cannot keep to one series. Here I bring you another mini series called the Saturday Mix! Where I bring a little, simpler recipe I’m digging during the week along with a few links that have caught my eye. This week its these three yummy juices that have been long time favorites of mine, and it was requested by many of you on Instagram that I share! Ask and you shall receive. I don’t do juice cleanses (nothing against them, I just never have), but I do cleanse – everyday – through my diet and integration of fresh juice throughout the week. Three to four times a week I will replace one of the five small meals I eat throughout the day with a juice. It makes me feel amazing and I judge my food choices based on that criteria. I hope these inspire you to drag the juicer out of the closet (if you have one) or maybe invest in one down the road if it seems like your kind of thing. Now lets get to some serious and not so serious topics in this week’s link-age.

The first is kind of serious, but so true and needed. Lindsey speaks the hard truth on internet jealousy, breaks down walls by talking about the real struggles, and gives great tips on how to eradicate (or seriously reduce) it in you life. I benefitted a good deal from reading this post, thank you tons Lindsey!

I love Kate’s tips in her Food52 article on a week of waste free cooking! Every time I throw a scrap into the garbage I think to myself “I need a compost bin”. But this takes it a step further, figuring out ways to be creative in the kitchen by using what you’ve got.

A little lightheartedness. Save this link for Monday, when you get to work (or school) and are in a slump. This guy needs a spin-off.

I’m all about sleeping in a tent under the stars, but these beach airstreams and cabins have me PEGGED.

I like to think that a cooler, more skilled “me” could do this one day. That, and rally racing. #dreaming

Someone help me, I cannot stop watching these gifs (!!!). I have Scott to thank for weird shenanigans like these that I get exposed to. I do think the top toilet paper one is pretty gratifying, though.

I’m a long distance runner through and through, but that is reserved for in the mornings. In the afternoons I’ve been trying more strength training and have be hooked on all things posted on Pop Sugar Fitness. Any other go-tos you worker-outers love? I’ve been hearing a lot about this HIIT.

Have you ever had a chia shot/energy drink? I’m totally intrigued, and think this green tea one sounds pretty yummy.

1 red beet
1 bunch of kale
1 bunch of parsley
1 lemon
1 lime
1/2 english cucumber
2 inch knob of ginger

2 tangerines (or oranges)
2 carrots
2 inch knob of ginger
2 inch knob of turmeric

1 bunch of kale
1 bunch of cilantro
1/2 english cucumber
2 celery stalks
1 lemon
1 inch knob of ginger

Each of the listed amounts is for one serving, however you may be able to split into two smaller servings if you are new to juicing. To prep the veggies: wash the greens, herbs, carrots, cucumbers, celery, and beet, then juice whole (with stems and skins). Slice off the skin of the lemons, limes, and tangerines (or oranges) as well as the ginger and turmeric before juicing. The juices are best enjoyed right away for the highest nutritional profile – but can be stored in airtight jars in the refrigerator until ready. Best if consumed within 1 day.

For those of you interested, I do not have a cold pressed machine – but use this Breville. It has worked well for me the past three years and is a great alternative to the higher priced cold pressed – IMO.

    jessie, these juices are so cosmically colored! how beautiful the ingredients for each one, there’s no picking favorites for me. also, that turmeric looks so pretty. you are forever fresh and bright and i could never get enough of that. i’m all over that waste-free cooking article, it is a serious passion of mine to explore all avenues when working with vegetables. the more knowledge we have about every plant, the more root to stalk cooking we can do. much weekend love sister ♥

      Danielle! YOU are a ray of sunshine. Thank you sweet friend! I’m so glad you enjoyed these juice mixes and the food scrap link. So inspiring. As is your feed/cleverness in the kitchen! xo

    The colours of these juices are gorgeous!! Okay, that Buzzfeed article of the gifs had me tripping. Worst one was the creepy worm thing that ate the entire fish! I read that Food52 article on close loop cooking the other day and it made me so happy to see them publish something like that because that is how I cook, and it’s so great when you discover all these cool ways to use up your food scraps. I have a blender but not a juicer, and this is making me want a juicer so bad so I can whizz up these concoctions you’ve shared <3

      OMG I know right, some of those gifs are kind of gross – but some are really gratifying! And thats awesome that you loved the food scrap article too! I’m always needing inspiration in that area. Thank you for the juice love, Genevieve, nature makes the prettiest colors! <3

    My husband and I would juice a few times a week… until our Babe came along. We need to get back to it- that tangerine dream sounds wonderful!

    • Reply Faring Well February 28, 2016 at 8:27 am

      Oh my goodness I bet having a baby would make cleaning the juicer probably last on your list of things to do. But if you do get to try one again soon, that tangerine dream is – well – dreamy! <3

    I loved Lindsay’s post on internet jealousy. Pinch of Yum is such a successful site, and it was kind of nice to know that Lindsay experiences a lot of the same things as so many of us! I think it took a lot of guts for her to write so candidly, and I respected her immensely for it :)

    • Reply Faring Well February 28, 2016 at 8:28 am

      Oh my goodness – TRUTH. I felt the same way. So wonderful and selfless of her to open up like this for the sake of helping so many others. Adore her. And adore you. xo

    I’m a long distance runner too but I’ve really been into HIIT lately. I love how I can squeeze in a super intense workout in a short period of time. These elixirs are perfection Jessie – those colours!! Now I need to get back to juicing asap! P.S. I made your shiitake tofu wraps last night – they were delicious!! Happy Sunday lady. xo
