Oh What a Find!

Stopped in at Walmart yesterday and found all of this for a buck a bag!  2 bags of baby kale, 1 bag of baby spinach and 2 bags of mixed greens.  There was so much kale in one bag that I had to wash it in batches…LOL

Very Berry Creamy Avocado Smoothie!

Chock full of antioxidants and has spinach and kale juice just for good measure:

Juiced some spinach and kale and added to that frozen berries…Strawberries, black currants, sweet cherries, blackberries, blueberries and red sour cherries.  Tossed in 1/2 frozen banana and a half an avocado:

Juice & Soup

This is what I made from some of the produce I bought:

Juice1

Kale, spinach, carrot, green apple and ginger juice.  I drank some of the juice and used the rest as broth for the soup I made.

pulp

I used about a cup and a bit of the pulp in my soup…why not?…I asked myself.  I added some of the juice to the pot then added onions, garlic and a bit of the pulp to saute.  I then added potatoes, carrots, smoked paprika, s&p, red chili flakes, thyme, oregano and sage.  I added water to cover veggies then added a cup of pulp from veggies I juiced, pearl barley, 6 bean blend and 2 teaspoons of potato/carrot/ginger soup mix….brought to a gentle boil then simmered.

Soup

Mmmm, mmmm good!  There is enough soup to last me a few days…that is if I can control myself and not eat it all in one go…hehehe.

Soup Broth

2 bowls later…yes, I had 2 bowls…LOL.  I’m saving some of the broth for another time to make some spicy rice noodles.  The broth is tasty enough that you could have it on its own.
