No Juicer Juice–Apple, Celery, Parsley–Stress Reliever Juice

The use of a blender, or Ninja is a great alternative to an expensive juicer. Here is how I do it:

1. put 1 cup of distilled, room temp water into Ninja

2. cut up your pink lady apple, 2 stalks of celery (use all of the celery-even the yellowish, leaves), ~1 tablespoon fresh ginger, a small bunch of parsley (you don’t have to cut the parsley)

3. add all ingredients to Ninja, and add a dash of cayenne pepper (fire element)

4. blend on setting 1, then 2. blend until you see the pulp that is being flicked onto the sides of the Ninja fall down to be blended again (see video)

5.have a glass ready with  a piece of cheesecloth covering the opening

6. pour the juice and pulp onto the cheesecloth and press the juice through using a rubber spatula

7. put remaining pulp into a plastic container to freeze for compost (or whatever you want to use it for)

8. clean up (I like the Ninja because it is easier to clean than a juicer, and all its parts)

9. enjoy your juice in the morning sun

10. recite your morning mantra:

I am…

joyful

loving

patient

peaceful

whole

a shining being

Chickpea and Eggplant Burger…kind of

As usual, I needed to use my eggplant, which was going bad too soon. I also had a taste for a lettuce-wrapped burger, so my search for dinner recipes began. I found this video. The woman in the video is quite annoying, but the burgers she made looked really good. I didn’t have all of the ingredients that she used, and I am not eating soy or sugar or dairy, so some things that she used I left out. Now that I think about it, my recipe was nothing like hers. I just used it as inspiration. 🙂  I hope the pictures explain what I did well enough.

The “kind of” in the tile means that the burgers didn’t come out as firm as an actual burger (meat, veggie or bean). They were soft, and a little crumbly. it may be a good idea to add something like oatmeal to absorb the liquid and hold the burger together. I added some brown rice flour (as you’ll see in the picture) to make the burgers a little dryer. They were still really good on the lettuce!

Thanks for reading!
