[I]f you found me sitting on my living room floor drinking this green juice, eating peanut butter with a spoon straight from the container, and blasting 90’s Ani DiFranco, well… you could chalk that up to awesome taste, cool life-stylings, or… more likely, single real-life independent-woman cat-lady instincts come to life. Related: please listen to Dilate asap.
I also have my old pair of Dr Martens from 1997 and I always think that oooonnneee day they might make sense on my body again. I know that will never be true, but a girl can hope.
Can we just get on with the juice? My peanut butter and Ani consumption are always part of the deal. You can dig it.
These days New Orleans is party stormy, part warm breezy, part haunted tropic, part angry beauty. I wanted a juice that matched that in sweet and sourness.
Lemons (from a local tree thankyouverymuch), romaine for green, apple for sweetness, and cucumber for girth and clean juice! The combination is both satisfying and bright. Totally the gateway into Spring. Just like those dang Cadbury candy coated eggs that are taunting us at the drugstore. Don’t buy those! (Until you’ve had all your green juice and they’re on mega sale after Easter… then go NUTS! cool thanks.)
We’ve talked about juicing before: On Juicing.
More juicing inspiration here: Good Morning Greens and Carrot Orange Ginger (and bourbon).
Sweet and Sour Green Juice
Sweet, sour, earthy and bright. This juice is healthful and delicious!
- 1 large apple, cored and sliced
- 1 unpeeled cucumber, quartered and sliced
- 1 large handful clean romaine lettuce leaves
- 1 lemon, sliced, quartered, and peeled
- Run all of the fresh fruits and vegetables through a slow juicer. Serve over a bit of ice, or room temperature. Enjoy!
Dilate = yes. Still have my cassette.
tried it! loved it!!
Thanks for the inspiration! I don’t have a juicer, so I made it as a smoothie with some water & ice added. It’s delicious & refreshing!
Joy, you get me every time. I loved my DMs (although gave mine away a long time ago between one of several house moves) and I needed to be reminded of Ani. Its been a horrible few months for me. Aside from amazing friends and family, my two favourite blogs (you and Tracy) have been invaluable. You are both honest, remarkable women, just getting on and doing stuff!
Mind you, its very awkward to say now. A few months in, it feels a little rude to only fess up now. I guess its the magic of the internet, you touch so many of our lives, without even knowing.
So thanks Joy xx
I spent an ungodly amount on some black and white Dr Marten saddle shoe things in ’97 too. Spent graduation money on them. They’re in my crawl space.
Ani Difranco, Ani Difranco’s best album (untouchable face is, of course, a classic, but the title track and Adam & Eve are by far the my favorites), Doc Martens, and Joy the Baker all in one? I think all of my dreams just came true.
Ok, I’m making this for my husband tomorrow! I was looking for something like this..and your combo seems perfect. Thanks! :)
As a fellow Ani fan, I can fully appreciate this post, this moment, and likely this juice. Love it!
And for me – 32 flavors (clearly her original, not the remake) will play in my head on identity crisis days:)
As if I could love your blog, writing, recipes and cookbooks anymore…then you go and mention my absolute favorite musician!!! And I needs that juice! :)
