Homemade Vegetable Juice

This whole juicing thing has really taken off with me. I really got the juicer because my oldest wanted it for juicing but hasn't liked any of the ones I've made. So she sticks to her smoothies. I thought I'd make juice here and there, but it'd end up being another appliance on the shelf. Well, not so! My body has taken to juicing and actually craves it now!  I'll be busy with my day and get that scent of juicing in my mind and then I'll want some. We went to a juice bar the other week and I walked in and the aroma in there "was like MY kitchen!" when I juice. I even went out and bought a case of glass jars to keep my extras in I am loving it so much.

It's only been a few weeks but I have noticed a little difference already. I have notched my belt smaller! So it's been a bonus for me as I am not juicing to lose weight (well that and taking my walks more often have helped).

So, I was thinking of more recipes to try and I've been wanting that V8 juice lately. So I looked around online and found this one. I'm sticking with more green/veggie juices since I can't have too much of the fruit juices. This recipe came out fantastic! Everything compliments each other well. I love that it made me 3 servings so I can grab one out of the fridge tomorrow.

Homemade Vegetable Juice

6-8 small tomatoes
8 carrots, peeled
4 celery stalks
1-2 handfuls spinach
1/2 bunch parsley
1/4 small onion
1/4 beet
1 clove garlic
1 jalapeno, seeded if desired
Salt to taste

Add the salt to the jar you're juice is juicing into to help better dissolve it. Juice all ingredients and serve (I like mine chilled). Makes about 3 pints.
