Apple-Mango-Field Greens-Garlic-Ginger Juice
My friend Shaun of In a Pickle and a Jam gifted me with her old juicer when she moved from Portland last year. You know, she's a vegan who left Portland. It happens more often than you think. It's not all magical nutritional yeast covered streets and freshly made vegan donuts handmade by dear Katie Jane at Sweetpea on Saturdays.
Back to the point, my friend Tiffany of the new blog she's begging me to plug even though she
only has one entry up so far, A Series of Open Letters to Entirely Random People, constantly tells me from thousands of miles away that she wants juice. I don't ship her juice, but it does inspire me to use said juicer. And truthfully, she's told me at least two humorous ideas she has in store for other letters, and I helped her navigate wordpress and I'll be disappointed if she doesn't keep blogging, so now she better. I'll make her juice when she visits.
Personally, I find myself juicing when I have a surplus of produce, like after picking up $1 bags at Limbo or with odds and ends - a random apple, beet and two I'm-worried-about-them-going-really-limp stalks of celery and then I'm thinking juice.
$1 Bag of apples and mangoes
Reason #4,599 that I dig vegan Portland - A special peanut butter cream filled donut with chocolate glaze at Sweetpea, and a mug of Stumptown Coffee.
