Adventures in Juicing: The Tasting - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

The other day, Lauren came over to my side of the Bay and we headed straight to my favorite place to be on a Saturday morning - the farmer's market.

I fell in love with the flowers that day.

While strolling by the vendors and gobbling samples, Lauren (who is 4 months pregnant) started talking about wanting to get more nutrients in her body, in addition to her food-based prenatal vitamins.

I spent the rest of the day doing my best to convince Lauren that juicing would be an excellent way to get nutrient dense vegetables into her body.

Lauren is new to juicing, and had a lot of questions for me.  So I took the opportunity to perform a little juice tasting in my kitchen and answer all of her questions.

We grabbed our ingredients, and came straight home to wash and prepare for The Tasting.

Stay tuned for Part 2 tomorrow, where I'll answer some of Lauren's FAQs on juicing!
