My First Homemade Juice
We are in the midst of a a juice boom here in New York City. It's quite possibly a bubble, similar to the great cupcake bubble of the post-Magnolia era, but I'm hoping for a boom.
If you stand on a random street corner, steady your mind, tap into your peripheral vision, you're bound to zone in on juice masters, innovators, tiki stands, and even bodegas jumping on the bandwagon in a surprisingly close radius. So with all this convenient supply, I've been taking advantage of hanging out and soaking up the benefits of juicing.
I never really thought of doing it myself... and then I met the fantastically inspiring, Kris Carr. After we met while making a video for Nissan's Innovation for Endurance campaign, a juicer arrived to my apartment -- a gift from the master herself! It was the coolest present ever. I think Kris was trying to tell me something.
Terrified, mortified, petrified, stupefied, I was straight-up intimidated by juicing. Karmically similar to many people I encounter with what I do with yoga, Kris gave me the confidence I needed and a little advice to set me on the right track: 2 parts veggies / 1 part fruit, and you can't really go wrong. Inhale / exhale / repeat. Quid pro quo.
So I present to you, my first at-home-juicing escapade. You can do it, too!
How I made it: handful of kale / handful of spinach / 1 pear
