Norwalk’s Juice of the Month for January is Mixed Green Juice with carrots, celery, parsley, and spinach. Over the next 4 weeks we’ll instruct you on how to choose and clean good produce, as well as juicing, storing, and some helpful tips.
When choosing carrots to juice, look for large, organic juicing carrots that have reached their full size and maturity. Smaller organic carrots, picked before they are fully mature will not have all of the nutrients found in a larger, more mature carrot. Carrots which are old and split should not be juiced. Do not attempt to juice with baby carrots. They lack the nutritional value found in healthy, full grown organic carrots.
When choosing greens to juice, look for mature, fully developed organic greens without black spots. Greens should be crisp, moist, and fully stemmed. Avoid pre-cut or pre-washed greens or baby spinach as they contain fewer nutrients than whole, mature greens.
Please remember that your juice will only be as nutritional as the produce you use to make it.
