On our move to Wisconsin we did a ridiculously long road trip to get there. Because our days of Junk food are over, we stopped a lot at Target for lunch to pick up a salad and carrots and berries. We also looked for other good healthy snacks to take with us on the road. We became quite addicted to these delicious things called apple chips.
We’ve been on a bit of a wheatgrass kick at our house lately. If you don’t know the benefits of juicing wheatgrass let me fill you in! It’s full of good stuff like vitamins A and C. If you are needing to detox your poor liver from all that yucky refined sugar it’s had to process, wheat grass juice will do the trick! It’s also a great blood cleanser.
Warning… This recipe has feta cheese. If you are strictly vegan then just omit it. Otherwise, make sure you get organic grass fed feta! That is the most nutritious type of feta cheese!
As we are getting ready for our move, I’m trying to use up our Costco sized bag of quinoa. I remember loving a greek salad I made with coos coos so I thought… hey! Why not try a quinoa greek salad?!?!
So if you know me at all you know how big of a fan I am of juicing. It’s the best. Seriously. I lost 15 pounds drinking one juice a day. Not as a meal replacement, but more of a vitamin shot booster. That’s what fresh juice is you know? An injection of vitamins right into your vitals! It’s great!
We have an omega vrt 350 HD. After researching juicers for a few months and taking back our first two omega juicers (one centrifugal and the other an earlier model of the one we have now), we have found that nothing yields as much juice from our leafy greens as this one.
If you haven’t tried Odwalla’s Mango Tango juice, then you are missing out my dear friend. These guys are tasty to the MAX! I was craving one the other day but these juices are actually a bit pricy. So, I thought to myself, why not just make one myself?
Ingredients? Check! Vitamix? Check! Time to make some mangoey (yes it’s a word) goodness.
