So far, January is looking pretty juicy, don’t you think? I do! We’re over a week into 2017 so far, David Attenborough is still alive and so are we. Not bad ey? So far 2017 is strutting its stuff. It’s a good month for us too as we are off to Whistler in 3 days time. Excited doesn’t even cut it. OHMYGODIAMBEYONDECSTATIC is a little closer. Having never been to Canada before, we are like two kids in a the biggest toy store you can think of. Except our toy store will be the mountains. 2 years since our last snowboarding trip, and 2 years since our last holiday together, this break is so needed. Snow keeps falling in Whistler, and I hope it keeps coming the next 2 weeks. 2 more days, my out of office will be on, and I’ll be an annoying bundle of energy as we make our way across the pond.
Keen to be in tip-top condition for our 14 day shred session, I’ve been upping my fruit and vegetable intake even more. Now, I may be a little behind on the juicing craze, but fear not, I’m catching up. I received the L’Equip 215 XL Juicer, voted the ‘Best Buy’ juicer in The Independent in 2012 and again in 2016, recently. This juicer performs just as well as some much pricier models. With an extra-large feeding tube and a 600w motor, this little number will pulverise and extract all that goodness from your 5 a day. I’ve rustled up not one, but two refreshing juice recipes to see you through January. I’ve loaded them up with turmeric and ginger, perfect for the anti-inflammatory benefits. Ginger is also a great immune booster and gives digestive support.
Want to hear more awesome news?! The lovely people at Steamer Trading Cookshop are giving away the L’Equip 215 XL Juicer to one lucky reader! I have mentioned my love for Steamer Trading before. They have a vast range of kitchen cookwear. Set up in 1985 by Liz and David, they opened their first store in Sussex. Now with multiple stores across the UK, they’re firmly established as one of the nation’s favourite cookshops. Now, let’s get juicy.
