Battling the Green Juice
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.
I cannot actually believe that today has finally arrived! What a range of emotions from nervous to scared to excited and then ultimately proud. It has been a long journey and the season is just beginning! I’m excited to be surrounded by such amazing supportive people and I’m looking forward to connecting with all of the new fascinating folks I will be lucky to meet. I am honored to be a part of the Below Deck crew and a new member of the Bravo family. I’ll be tuning in with all of you to ride the roller coaster and give insight to the twists and turns as I live tweet during episodes from @AdrienneGang .
There are so many fun, dramatic, ridiculous, crazy, down-right obscene, and heart-warming moments to this season that I’m glad to say were all VERY real. You all will see me happy, sad, frustrated, focused, mad, humbled, and maybe just maybe a glimpse of relief. I honestly admit that there are some ugly, crazy, and not-so-good *some I’d rather no one saw* moments in this show for me, but at the end of the day I am proud of what this accomplishment means to me personally and to the yachting industry as a whole. I did my best to make my industry proud, but also to show the humanity in what we do instead of just the pretty facade that people usually see. Thank you for joining me on this exciting adventure and please buckle up for the ride because, trust me, it’s going to be a bumpy one… – Adrienne
