Prophylactic self-isolation for “Celery splash” preparation. Day 70th.

Overture

Few recipes of super refreshing morning drinks could work for a month…for 2-3 months, but then you tire of them. Then you know, it is time to find new combinations and write down a new recipe.

Ingredients for Celery splash preparation. Photo by Dr. A. Papatronis on www.z-antenna.com
  • Lemons, 2 pcs
  • Parsley leaves, handful
  • Celery stems, 4 pcs
  • Apple, 1 pcs
  • Honey, 1-2 Tbsp
  • Water, purified

How to make it:

  • Passive time in a kitchen:
    • Take lemons and apple from a refrigerator (if they stored there) and put on a counter for 2-8 hours
  • Active time in a kitchen:
    • Wash all the ingredients
    • Peel lemons, slice an apple and take out an apple core, cut celery stems in pieces, remove all parsley stems (only parsley leaves should go to a juicer)
    • Use a juicer to make juice from lemons, apple, parsley and celery
    • Add honey into a squeezed juice and mix (by a whisk or a hand blender)
    • Dilute with water 1:1  
    • Let it rest for 5 minutes and drink!

Important notes:

  • Putting fruits out of a refrigerator (if you store them there) before recipe preparation is a good idea, because in a warmer place (on a counter) the fruits will generate more glucose and will be sweeter. However, at least 2 hours are necessary. If making this juice in the morning – put the fruits on a counter day before, in the evening
  • For dilution with water: measure the amount of juice you have and take the same amount of water. For example, if I have 1 cup of juice, it means, I need 1 cup of water to add
  • Always dilute your fresh vegetable/fruit juices 1:1 with water. Drinking 100% juices (not diluted) could be a “shock” for a digestive system, glucose level in blood and overall healthiness
  • Dilute your 100% juices with water 1:1, but not more. If adding more water – all the tastiness of freshly made drink disappears, so ratio 1:1 is a golden middle point:)
  • If using a juicer, it is important to cut off all the parsley stem, even small ones, only parsley leaves should go through a juicer. Because parsley stems going through a juicer provide a bitter taste and you definitely would like to avoid it

Lemon greens

“a fresh day starts with a fresh drink!”

I always start a day with a cup of my-made Crystal clear water. A cup of Lemon greens follows and after 15-30-45 min it makes wonders to my digestion, literally.

Ingredients for Lemon greens morning drink

Ingredients for 1 portion:

  • lemon, 1 or 1.5 piece
  • parsley leaves, handful
  • honey, 1 table spoon
  • water, 350 ml or 1.5 cup (its the same volume in different measuring systems)

How to make it:

  • squeeze lemons and cut the greens in medium-sized pieces
  • mix in a blender all ingredients for 1 min at a medium speed
  • let it sit for a while to separate a juice drink from a foam
  • strain a juice drink and its ready!

How I drink it:

I sit down and relax in my favorite chair, than swallow Lemon greens in a small amount little by little, no hurry here:). Keeping my time and just relaxing after for few minutes.

What Im doing with lemon peels and greens’ waste:

  • lemon peels will be used for kitchen sink refreshment Le-la aroma
  • greens’ waste will be used for Bokashi compost and Bokashi brew

Lemon greens drink gives a dose of freshness to my mouth, and to my day too:)

First time I tried a similar drink in one Krakow restaurant and was just amazed about a tonic and refreshing effect it had. Well, my version is much more green in colour probably because I am using a blender and bigger portion of greens. Sometimes I drink it without straining, but I noticed my digestive system works much better with a strained version.
