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.

Purple Passion Juice Shot!

Woowee!  If this doesn’t add some pep to your step, I don’t know what will…LOL

Purple Passion

If you aren’t used to juice or juice shots that are earthy, tangy, spicy and has a kick to it, use less purple cabbage or add a squeeze of lemon.  I happen to like earthy, tangy, spicy and I tossed it back like I was told people do when tossing back those other shots when at a club…not that I have ever done that back in the day….umm….you can’t prove it…hehehee.  You have to admit…that is some serious sexy in a glass right there 🙂
