Time to juice!
I always get questions about the green juice I drink every morning. Yes, it’s green. Yes, it’s full of vegetables. And, yes, it’s delicious! Though, I didn’t always feel that way. When I first started juicing I really had to pile on the fruits and could only drink about 8 ounces at a time. Gradually I would decrease the fruits and increase the size – after a few months I started to crave the juice (even without fruit) and now I LOVE it!
Here’s my go-to juice recipe (add or decrease fruit depending on the level of sweetness you’re after):
Yields about 5 pint sized glasses
- 4 to 5 kale leaves
- 4 to 5 chard leaves
- 4 green apples
- 3 cucumbers
- 1/4 of a medium pineapple
- 5 romaine leaves
- 5 celery stalks
I also get a lot of questions about why kind of juicer to get. There are so many options out there, especially as the juicing trend continues to grow. I bought my first juicer on ebay – it was one of the more expensive brands, but I got it for a much better price because it was used. Make sure you check out the juicer’s warranty before buying one – a quality juicer will have a decent warranty (mine is 10 years). Just do a little research on Google and you’ll easily be able to track down the right juicer for you!
