How to Save Your Juice | Juicing and Storing Fresh Made Juice
Howdy everyone! Happy Mother Day to those of you who are mothers especially all the new ones I realise that we all celebrate this day at different times through the year (ie I think Saudi celebrated it shortly after I gave birth, maybe April, however I didn’t really know about it) and US and Australia celebrate it today but as this is my first mothers day I really get now what it’s all about.
Celebrating being the mama to this cheeky little fella
And for all those other mothers out there, including my mother, HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY. I now understand why this is such an important day.
As a kid I remember asking my mum why kid’s don’t have their own day, and mum said “it’s everyday?” She was so right.
Nonetheless I love my little munchkin and that he’s made me a mum (mom).
So yesterday I started the day off with a detox juice.
Beetroot, Turnip, Carrot, Celery, Green Apple, Parsley, Green & Red Cabbage, Lemon & Ginger
Whoa it’s been so long since I’ve been able to hit the kitchen for one, but Manus had a sleep so I was lucky to get in there and pump out about about a litre for the next 3 days.
What about spoiling/oxidisation? Isn’t it best to drink your juice immediately to ensure no spoilage and maximum enzyme/nutrient hit?
Sure but for those busy people (and people that hate the juicer clean up every morning) there is a solution.
If you store the juice correctly, you can actually store it for up to 3 days without too much damage.
So here’s what you do:
You will need
A glass jar/s of some kind (large enough to fit you juice) canning jars with 2 piece lids like Ball are great.
Fill the jar ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP with even a little overflow (you want this airtight)
Place first part of lid on top. You want to create a vacuum seal. Best to have a little overflow of juice to make sure. If you don’t have a 2 part lid system, you will then want to cover the juice with cling/plastic wrap but ENSURE there are no air bubbles
Cover with 2nd lid and secure tight. If you are using cling/plastic film, then place your only lid over the top.
Voila. Then I had two serving sized juices for next 2 mornings. Ready to store in the fridge.
Later in the day I was so excited as I was heading back to see my good old friend
Wasn’t sure how I’d do, especially with Manus in tow, but he loved the music and didn’t really give me too much of an excuse to jump out of working out if he cried.
I got hammered. First time back is always hard, but gosh I felt good afterwards.
So did he
Pre workout fuel was one of these (2 others for my pals who gave me a lift there)
Half a nanner with raw cashew butter. Never tried the cashew butter before. Not quite fond of it on it’s own, but delish on a ripe banana.
Tomorrow night I’m headed back for my other old mate, Boxercise.
