Juices. Smoothies. Smuicies. Not quite sure about that last one, but ya catch my drift. The health world is obsessed with these drinks – myself included. Yet there’s still one juice, the envy of all other juices, the holy grail amongst yogis and nutrition gurus, who has captured the hearts of millions, the one and only, green juice.
Chlorophyll, responsible for giving green plants their color, helps the body in numerous ways, by removing toxins from the body, diminishing gastrointestinal problems, replenishing red blood cells – giving our bodies more energy, and it contains properties that kill harmful bacteria, to name just a few. Like I mentioned in my post juices vs. smoothies, cold pressed juices have the fiber removed, aiding the body in rapidly absorbing its many nutrients – cleansing and rebuilding the body.
- kale stalks (I use the leaves for salads and save the spines for juicing)
- 2 kiwi
- 1 green apple (core removed)
- 1 green pear
- 1/2 cucumber
- 1 inch of ginger
*It’s important to try and buy as much organic produce when juicing, especially because you want to juice the skins as well.
- Add all ingredients, skins still on, and let the juicer do all the work.
If you have any questions about juicing, cleansing/detoxing, please ask! I’ll try my best to help 🙂
