Juicing with Jenny: Demo and Tasting
September 13, 2014 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
Have you ever wanted to learn more about juicing? Then join us for a special late summertime Meetup on juicing with expert Jenny Bernal and the Urban Farmers Cooperative. She will share with us the art of juicing fresh fruits and vegetables into healthy, delicious drinks. We will have the opportunity to taste Jenny’s wonderful drinks, purchase her handmade almond milk and specialty pre-prepared juices, and then share in a community meal. Guests can contribute to our potluck lunch with their own garden-harvested food or prepared items.
Some of the topics covered will be:
- Juicing vs. Blending
- Things to Consider When Buying a Juicer or a Blender
- Nutritional Advantages of Juicing and Blending
- Techniques to Juicing
- Do’s and Don’ts of Combining Fruits and Vegetables
- Delicious Juice Recipes and Informational Materials
Jenny will be making some juices and almond milk that you can take home. 16oz bottles are $6 each.
She will make 4 each of the following:
Almond with vanilla
Almond with dates and vanilla
apple, carrot, orange and ginger
carrot, cucumber, kale, spinach and ginger
carrot, cucumber, kale, spinach, ginger, pineapple
Our host, Jenny Bernal, seeks activities that balance her work in high tech with fun and adventure in food and life. She was raised in five different countries by a mother who was adventurous and fun and used to make beet and carrot juice. At that time, Jenny did not appreciate the effort. Today, Jenny feels she has come full circle by juicing just like her mom, except she is adding more flavors, colors, and fruit/vegetable combinations. She uses very simple recipes for a busy lifestyle. Jenny has done her own research on combining fruits and vegetables to maintain balanced levels of sugars for healthy drinking. She is not a doctor or a nutritionist but feels that with a little information you can go a long way in developing great, healthy drinks. She also believes that investing in the right juicer is key to your own lifestyle, tastes, and beliefs.
Tickets are free or charge for these community events at the Middlebrook Center. However, we will ask you for a $10 suggested donation that will go directly to the California Native Garden Foundation to support the ongoing work in school gardens, restoration of native plants and the enrichment of our community.
