Green Juice, Tea, & Coffee Time, French Press Tutorial, Apple Crumble, Memories
Wow, it’s already Thursday afternoon…well that’s a good thing because it means just one more day til the weekend! Yay for warmer weather and weekends, a match made in heaven! Did anyone do anything for Saint Paddy’s Day yesterday or last night? Did you chug a Green Beer?
I dusted off the ole Breville juicer and chugged a Green Juice
Green Juice Recipe:
*1/2 head romaine
*3 huge kale stalks
*1 scant inch of ginger[/print_this]
This is my idea of a Green St. Paddy’s Day Beverage now. My Green Jello Shot days are long gone!
The Raw Bakery Treat was so good. I unabashedly admit I savored every bite!
In today’s mail there was Tea and Goodies from Tazo!
And this cool metal tea bag holder!
An insulated carrying bag
And Tazo Sent me a French Press!
And I love my caffeinated Beverages
But I Put the New French Press to Use moments after I broke into the box.
I admit to being totally clueless about how a French Press worked before today so this tutorial may help for those of you who are in the Dark with a French Press…
Add 2 Scoops of Coffee to the Bottom
Add Water to the Loose Grounds
Cover it with the Plunger in the Up Position and let it brew for 4 Minutes
Push The Plunger Down and the coffee grounds get trapped down below
Twist the lid so you can Pour the coffee out
And Enjoy your French Pressed Coffee!
Verdict: Awesome Cup ‘o Joe! I could have added either a little more loose coffee grounds or brewed it for another minute just for a little extra va-va-voom strong coffee because I love strong coffee, but no complaints and I chugged sipped this cup down lickity-split! Thanks, Tazo!
Green Food was Zuke Wedges, Cukes, Brussles, Carrots, Orange & Yellow Peppers, Tomatoes, and I Dressed It with my Holiday Orange Spice Vinaigrette
Something about the warmer weather inspired me to make a Fresh Batch of Raw Vegan Apple Crumble
The Raw Vegan Apple Crumble “Juice” is Cinnamon & Vanilla Extract infused Agave. I like to drink the juice in shot glasses. Kidding…but I totally could!
I ate this Raw Vegan Apple Crumble dessert tons over the fall when apples were in season, and haven’t made it much in the past few months, but it was time to break it out again!
Of course, I always have room for a few nibbles of Raw Vegan Coconut Oil Chocolate
Yoga Today is Astavakrasana (8 Angle Pose)
Have you ever tried a French Press. Do you have one? Do you want one?
Hopefully my tutorial helped de-mystify it for those of you who had no idea because prior to today, neither did I!
