I made the boyfriend some fresh juice out from my Juiceman Jr. the other day, and he got excited. The next day he came home with two giant bags of produce from Iovine’s Produce at Reading Terminal Market. Iovine’s is a treasure trove of fresh, affordable produce. We got:
4 oranges, a bunch of bananas, a bag of kale, 4 long peppers, a bag of mushrooms, a head of celery, a box of raspberries, 2 lemons, 2 limes, 1 ginger root, a bag of green beans, two apples, a pineapple, and a bag or carrots for $14. 50. It was a haul.
Then we got to the juicing. I have a little Juiceman Jr. which, while it does the job, takes out all of the fiber, seems to waste a lot of vegetable, and is hard to clean. You can see all the kale and carrot fibers in the lid.
While the boyfriend likes his juices fruitbased – apple, orange and carrot with a bit of kale and maybe a stalk of celery, I like them full of veggies. My current favorite is a pineapple, kale, cucumber, celery with bit of carrot, a bit of orange, a hunk of ginger and a wedge of lemon. It’s almost tart-tangy, and makes me feel all energized.
