I also went to a class on juicing and when I got home, got some great news about my niece's company. She works for Sherwin-Williams and one of their green colors was chosen as a "Favorite Green" by a senior decorator at Ballard Designs. The color is "Overt Green" and is just a sparkling, fresh, full-of-life green. My sister-in-law chose an equally smashing color, an orange, for her front door called "Adventure Orange". Here are the paint chips...computer doesn't do them justice.
After playing with all three things, juice class and two paint colors, what did I come up with? Fresh carrot juice with a sprig of mint. Delish!!
Ginger Orange Carrot Juice
In a heavy duty blender, put 3-4 ice cubes, 3 medium carrots (washed but not peeled, cut into chunks), good slice of fresh ginger, 1 whole orange (without skin) and 1/2 whole lemon (without skin). Blend away until smooth, adding purified water as necessary. It will have the texture of juice "with pulp". I guess you could strain it but gosh, there goes all the fiber. Serve chilled with a sprig of mint.
