During the winter months I don't have my garden zucchini to use as a low calorie
chlorophyll veggie. With fruits and berries they don't have any taste so I always use them as my first choice. But around Thanksgiving I run out and switch to
pumpkin. The drawback on them is the thick skin must be removed and it is lots more work. I do a whole pumpkin and then store it in a tupperware and it lasts about
a week using some everyday. Pomegranates also are in season right before Christmas and love their taste but they are work also.

Plop the Ningxia berries, spinach, cup up apple, cup up orange ,kefir and protein powder in the blender. Then in the Champion I juice the celery, fresh raw ginger and pumpkin -pouring it into the blender and whiz

1/2 c ningxia berries soaked over night (use all the liquid)
1 T protein powder (Im using 1/2 Whey and 1/2 Hemp)
1/2 c flavored kefir (beginners get 3/4 a cup)

1 orange
1 t. chia seeds
1 handful of spinach

1/2 t ginger
1/2 t Cinnamon
1/2 t nutmeg
1 stalk of celery

Carrots juice is one of the most popular juice because it is delicious on its own. It sweet flavor makes it valuable addition to cover the many vegetable tastes.
2 carrots has 4 times the amount of Vit A recommended daily allowance. One carrot a day has been studied to cut the rate of lung cancer in half.

(I use frozen apples from my tree last summer the ice adds to the
Orange Julius taste)

Just after the first of the year Avocado's go on sale for 3/$100
This is a great time to experiment with them.
You can add 1/2 an avocado to any smoothie and just make it smoother
Avocado is full of omega 3's and you need this everyday for quick memory

4 oz of fennel (1/2small or 1/4 large bulb and it has a mild licorice flavor)
It should be bought with the bulb and stems attached. It should look fresh looking like celery. Slice the bulb and the chop it into chunks. Fennel in the Yugoslavian household is used to treat an upset tummy.
3 apples

When Summer comes and my zucchini plant is producing -- I would just switch out
the pumpkin

Pick a recipe and give it a try
Remember if you don't like that fruit toss it out and pick one you do
(you don't get that option with veggies -- just give them a try - you
might be shocked and like it)
If you don't need fiber don't add it.......
Be flexable and have fun.........holly
