Have I mentioned how AMAZING my in-laws’ fridge is? They seriously have every vegetable and fruit imaginable, tons of different cheeses and flavors of hummus, a million condiments… oh, and it’s all organic! It’s a foodie dream!
On the way over to my in-laws, I snacked on nuts:
And when I arrived, my sister-in-law (Sophie) offered to raid the in-laws’ fridge and make Zesty Carrot Juice. She’s been reading this book on raw foods/juicing and is basically a juicing queen now:
I’m obviously not into the raw foods movement, but I flipped through the book and it looks like an interesting read! And it has lots of good Green Monster recipes, so I photocopied those.
Sophie put the following ingredients into her juicer for Zesty Carrot Juice (we made 5 servings):
- Carrots (14 large)
- Ginger (3 – 4 inches)
- Gala apples (8)
- Lime (2)
- Lemon (1)
The result was nothing short of… AMAZING!
I NEED MY OWN JUICER. This was so fresh and delicious.
After our juice, the Husband, Sophie, and my mother-in-law headed to the community gym. I obviously didn’t want to push myself after my 5K, but I did want to do some strength training!
I did a combination of leg presses, hamstring curls, tricep pull downs, lat pull downs, bicep curls, push-ups, sit-ups, and bicycle crunches. I also walked 2.0 miles on the treadmill. Twas an excellent post-race workout and it probably helped ward off stiffness!
We came back and I made a light lunch:
A hummus and sprouts sammie and raspberries.
And a serving of apple crumble, homemade by my mother-in-law:
Currently, we’re cooking a huge BBQ for dinner. On the menu is veggie kebobs, veggie burgers, salad, corn on the cob, and more.
The Husband set up a nice poolside dining table, but it suddenly started to monsoon and ruined all the dishes!
Guess we’re eating our BBQ inside! 🙂
Do you juice? What are some great juicing recipes?
I have never juiced, but it intrigues me. Your in-laws' fridge looks stuffed full of so much yummy food – you must be in foodie heaven. Do you happen to have a recipe for that apple crisp? 🙂
