GREEN JUICE RECIPE
(Choose all organic whenever possible. The only thing I will slide on is lime because I peel it first. The most important would be celery & cucumber. If you can't get organic, don't get it at all.) Do not peel anything except the lime.
|Parsley, celery, apple, lime, cucumber, red leaf lettuce, and ginger in the middle. Kale is missing this day.|
1 granny smith apple
1 lime (peeled by knife)
1/3 bunch of kale
1/3 bunch of red leaf lettuce
1/3 bunch of parsley
3 celery pieces (leaves included)
1 chunk 'o ginger (about 2 in piece - I no longer peel this, just wash it)
Sometimes I will do spinach (MUST be organic) in place of the lettuce or kale.
Depending on your juicer, this should get you about 16 ounces of juice. I just upgraded my juicer and got 28 ounces in the photo above. Stir it and drink it right away. It starts to oxidize and lose it's goodness within 30 minutes.
I had been using a Jack LaLane Juicer prior and it worked fine but since I am a daily juicer and felt I was wasting produce, I upgraded to the Hurom. It is a different type of juicer. The Jack LaLane is a centrifuge juicer and it spins around and grinds/shreds the food. The Hurom is a masticating juicer and it squeezes and presses the juice reserving more enzymes. The clean up is a lot easier since I upgraded as well. Regardless, I find juicing to be therapeutic. Stick with it. Make it a part of your every day routine. You'll see changes in your skin, eyes, energy, etc.
I buy my produce every 3 days.
An FYI: Carrots and beets have a LOT of sugar so I don't use them but it is entirely up to you. ENJOY!
