First things first though.....Must have my Stash Tea ( Chai )
Then it was time to juice!
I love having a fridge full of clean veggies!
Since this was my first time juicing I had no idea how many veggies I was going to need to fill up a 16oz glass. So, I guess I was about to find out....
Verdict: It took a lot
3 Granny Smith apples
1 Bosc pear
1/2 lemon peeled
1/2 cup mint
5 Dino kale leaves
2 stalks of celery
However, it was WONDERFUL! Smooth, sweet, green and light. I loved it!!! But, since this could turn into an expensive hobby I might not be able to "juice" everyday. I'm going to look into other veggies and fruits that my be easier on the wallet. I know kale, apples and pears are pretty cheap on the Mainland but this is Hawaii and they are pretty $$$ here. We don't grow these Fall/Winter foods in abundance.....
Carlos is working a short shift this afternoon so I decided to take advantage of the empty living room and do a 1 hour Hatha yoga DVD. After my session I had a super juicy Star fruit that one of my girlfriends gave me. She has a Star fruit tree in her yard and is always supplying us with these fresh exotic fruits!
I decided that I wanted to jump in the water so I grabbed my longboard once again and paddled Napili Bay.
First, I stopped by the cute Kapalua Fruit stand for some lemons and oranges....
I bought 4 lemons and 4 small oranges for $3.00
Then I proceeded down to the water.
Pikake is in full bloom in November. The air smells like Jasmine today!
I did 8 fast laps across the bay on my surfboard in 30 minutes.
This place doesn't suck...
However, an ESPN camera crew showed up to film the beach ( The College Basketball Maui Invitational is this week ) and I didn't feel like being caught on camera so I decided to head back home for lunch...
Left over Veggie Tacos from last night!
2 local corn tortillas
vegetarian refried beans
Steveo's Salsa ( recipe on July 6 post )
As for the rest of the day.....Carlos gets off of work soon and we have some friends in town. Might go out later??.....
