Clean-Out-the-Fridge Juice

I had been overindulging a bit over the weekend, and I desperately needed to get a good dose of veggies into my system. When I looked through the fridge, I noticed quite a bit of produce that I had “forgotten” to use. It hadn’t gone bad yet, but it was time to use it quickly. There were also some delicious grapes with tons of seeds, and I didn’t feel like dealing with the seeds, so they went into the juice as well:

Clean-Out-the-Fridge Juice
  • 1 head lettuce
  • 1 fennel bulb
  • 1 small cucumber
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 small bunch of grapes
  • 2 small apples – I didn’t use the apples pictured above as I realized the juice would be sweet enough because of the grapes

Delicious! To be honest, I was a bit scared of the fennel. Only recently have I acquired the taste of fennel, and I now really like it roasted. But I had never juiced it and was afraid it would be overpowering in the juice. But it wasn’t. I think the grapes helped a lot.

Questions: Do you like fennel? If so, what’s your favorite way to eat it? How are you consuming your veggies this week?
Be well,
