I have always hated tomato juice, despite being a bartender for more years and making more bloody mary’s than I care to remember… all with good reviews. Well, always, until March this year when my boyfriend made me a bloody mary on our trip to Puerto Rico. I fell in love!
Tyler Tolman’s online juice fast started on August 1 and I’m totally hooked! As mentioned in my c.a.s.s. juice post last week, I had a day of juice on the official first day but took Friday through Sunday off to go to Osheaga music festival in Montreal… and while I missed my juice, it was totally worth it! A fab three days with great music, great company, and luckily for me, great gluten-free vegan Thai food : )
I have been so excited… three weeks after hiding my first batch of kombucha in a dark cupboard I can finally unveil it! In addition to excited, I was very. very nervous. What if I messed up the preparation? What if I didn’t steep the tea for long enough? What if it tasted awful? What if it got contaminated? What if it fell off the shelf… all by itself?!?
Yesterday it took me 20oz to decide that I actually liked my smoothie concoction! Today I thought I’d share the details incase you ever find yourself, as I did, with this very ripe, random mix of ingredients. I typically like my green smoothies to have a thick, creamy consistency so this one looked a little thin at first but it’s still yummy, and although it looks like grass and kinda smells like grass, it tastes like nectarines…
