I woke up wide awake this morning at 9:30, after only 4 hours of sleep. I’m trying to knock back the first juice of the day. You’ll understand the “trying” part in a bit. 😉
This pic is from a 10lb bag of collards that I juiced yesterday – almost a full 1/2 gallon. I love the green…HA!!
I mixed 1 cup of this healthy green stuff to 1 cup of beet juice…another lovely shade of purple…
Don’t let the color fool you…This is one mean green juice!! I am seriously having a tough go of it. Who knew juiced collard greens could put off so much heat! My throat and stomach are both protesting! I think I am going to have to cut this with some water. I like spicy food, but Holy Smokes!!
Reminds me of the time the owner of the Chinese restaurant where I worked in my younger days asked me to try a “new” appetizer. She had diced a whole jalapeno, included seeds and all, poured a tiny bit of oil on it, and gave me the spoon without me seeing what she had done. My eyes watered for hours after I swallowed it. Milk or bread cuts the heat from hot peppers, but there were neither in the store. Tea and water do not work, no matter how much you drink. lol
I should have suspected the heat when my eyes started watering yesterday during the making of the meanest mean green juice. WOW! I am definitely having a soothing fruit smoothie after this one!
