Big C Juice
For my birthday earlier this year, my parents banded together and bought me a Hurum slow juicer. I’d been aching for one for so long before I finally got this gift that keeps on giving, and we have definitely been making good use of it! I try to make a pitcher of juice every week and replace most breakfasts with a nice, cool, glass full. We haven’t gotten too adventurous yet with the juicer, but it does come with a very thorough recipe book that includes everything from baby food (no rush there!) to making crackers with the pulp.
Last week I was feeling a bit under the weather, and took a day off from work to recuperate. It worked out perfectly that I’d already bought the ingredients for carrot-orange juice, because a boost of C was just what I needed!
I decided to call this juice “Big C” because last week I was also really caught up watching all 4 seasons of the show The Big C, and as you can imagine, a sick day provided ample couch-time to dive right through season 2 (which was my favorite season as well). So, in honor of a pretty great show this juice is brought to you by the letter C!
Big C Juice
- 3 jumbo carrots, or 6-8 regular sized carrots, cut into 1-inch chunks (the Italian Market had those ginormous ones so I figured I’d give them a try!)
- 1 head napa cabbage, sliced
- 3 oranges, peeled and sliced into wedges
- 2 pears, cored and sliced
Feed all ingredients into your juicer, alternating some moister ingredients (like the oranges) with the cabbage to avoid the pulp shoot getting jammed. Keep in the refrigerator, sealed in a pitcher or jar with a lid. Enjoy!
