Expanding palate…

juicing

Over the past 18 months, my palate has expanded to include some foods that I never would have touched previously.  Kale, for instance, was never on my radar.  In fact, the first batch of cold pressed juice I made that included kale was wretched, indeed.  JET and I did not know if we could even finish a bottle.  Now, we both LOVE kale, and consume 6 bunches per week.  Here are the new additions to our palate:

1.  Kale

2.  Parsnips

3.  Cucumbers (new for JET)

4. Artichoke hearts (new for JET)

5.  Turmeric

6.  Tofu (never like it in the past)

7.  Curry

8.  Arugula

9.  Beets

10.  All sorts of squash

11.  Quinoa

12.  Nutritional Yeast

The list will keep growing, I am sure…
