Juice with a Goose

There comes a time in the life of a goose when we must make a choice, to juice or not to juice.

There are the obvious health benefits to the practice of extracting the juice from our fruits and veggies. Of course, Mother Goose is much too busy these days to research what those benefits might be…..but you can probably just trust me on that.

We are told that the enzymes and vitamins which our bodies crave can be pulled out of the fibers of these veggies. It has been suggested that drinking the nutrient-packed juice causes these tiny yet explosive atoms of energy to be more easily quickly and easily digested and entered into our cells.

I would even go so far as to say that by the time I’m done washing up all of the juicing equipment, the energy from the juice has been transferred to my body and have exploded into a million various movements of dishwashing activity. In other words, drinking the fresh juice gives me the energy to wash the juice making machine. It’s a perfect cycle of caloric spin. Nothing wasted, not much gained…

Today's juicing recipe called for lemons, cukes, ginger, apples, pears, parsley, lettuce, spinach, kale,  celery and cilantro.  No animals were injured or maimed in the process.

I am the proud owner of a Jack Lalanne Power Juicer! Note to self: Jack’s birthday is coming up on September 26th — he’ll be 99 years old. Who DIDN’T grow up watching Jack do his exercises on TV? Remember how Mom really loved to watch his show? Maybe your dad didn’t watch Jack Lalanne, but I bet everybody’s mom did…. Also, remember all of the urban legends throughout the years that Jack had died of a heart attack? All proved false — Jack actually lived until 2011 and then succumbed to respiratory failure as a result of pneumonia. He did his workouts up until the day before his passing.

Jack Lalanne in 1961.  Oooh la la.

Oh yes, l threw in some little tomatoes at the last minute.  And oh yes, I DID grow them in my little goose garden...

Your mouth is watering, right?

It does not take long for Mother Goose to prepare the fruits and greens for the juicing experience. I have found that I can save approximately ten minutes of prep time by just skipping the “washing of the produce” step of the process… And if there are any bugs or small proteins caught on the fruit or greens, I simply chalk that up to bonus nutrition.

After you have extrapolated all of the juice and disposed of all the remnants of greens and veggies into your backyard compost pile, then you are ready to enjoy the distinctly natural and raw flavor of the juice AND you will begin to reap all of those benefits of which I haven’t quite yet googled…

As healthy and green as a spring meadow...

Drink it fast. As fast as you can.

Now Mother Goose has the energy to wash up all the equipment -- the juicer and the strainers and accouterments -- and get it all ready for the next juicing experiment.

    I like how you uncovered the energy benefit/calorie expenditure turns out to be “a wash.” 🙂

      Today’s juice consisted of more pears, apples and carrot — not so much of the chlorophyll items. And it was VERY tasty! Ooops, have to get back to the kitchen sink now…

      Eugene, thanks for sharing my story with your readers! Happy juicing to you today! Maybe I’ll even stop over and help you wash up your equipment as I’m quite proficient at that…

    I could perhaps do the fruit juices…the veggies – not so much! Perhaps it tastes more appetizing than it looks..??

      Dianna, truly the secret is finding the mix and blend that tastes great and is good for you. I didn’t mind the green drinks, but probably the most palatable so far was a mixture of pear, apple and carrot… with just a touch of celery and ginger. Mmmm…
