We’ve all heard that research shows when food looks and smells good, it is perceived to taste better. If I were trying to sell the idea of juicing on looks alone, this would not be my frontrunner candidate:
3 apples, a carrot, a bunch of kale – juiced – and 6 small frozen strawberries, blended in.
It was pretty tasty, though!
What can I say? I’ve reached the bottom of my produce stash. Gotta get to the store!
Yesterday ended up being only a half-juice day. I had forgotten about a celebratory dinner that followed my last meeting with the Arboretum Collaborative fellowship group. It was a fully vegetarian, all-local spread that was just amazing.
So, for dinner, I had a giant salad made with local arugula and pickled onions with an amazing local apple cider vinaigrette (which I must figure out how to replicate!), an asparagus and smoked gouda quiche made with local Piney River Farm eggs, local potato salad with roasted garlic mayo, and a vanilla bean creme caramel with local peach cider caramel.
I know, right?!
That surely makes up for the ugly (but tasty!) juice I had this morning.
Off to the market to stock up on produce!
