So as all of us are now aware on Episode 2 of Below Deck there was a serious, albeit comical, veggie debacle. To clarify, I received a separate preference sheet from each of the six guests. For anyone unfamiliar with what preference sheets are they are basically a list of demands that each guest fills out. It is impossible to know exactly what the guests will actually want when they are on board, but we use the information we have to prepare the best we can. That being said, the green juice was one item of hundreds and we had no way to anticipate what a green monster it would become.
I have worked on the health food side of cooking since he beginning of my career, so juicing is very familiar to me. The key is practice and efficiency. Juicing can be a time consuming process if you aren’t properly prepared.
Prep time 10 minutes makes 6 cups
2 cucumbers (peeled)
1 bag of spinach (rinsed)
1/2 pineapple rough edges cut off
3 kiwis (halved)
1 pear (quartered, stem removed, seeds cut out)
2 green apples (quartered, stem removed, seeds cut out)
1 bunch celery (root end cut off)
1/2 a lime
(Optional) 1 small piece of ginger for some kick
Juice. Stir. Ice. Enjoy.
