I love juice. Did I always love juice? No.
My love affair started after reading “Crazy, Sexy, Diet” by Kris Karr. Go snag a copy, it’s fantastical. I mean, the health benefits in juice… where do I even start? I’ve actually now switched from coffee to juice because it really does give me that burst of energy and leaves me feeling refreshed and awake.
Little known fact: Juice works it’s magic wonders best on an empty stomach so snag some as a mid afternoon snack or drink up first thing in the morning! Now, this might seem strange but once I made the switch my bod now craves that stuff every AM! Delish.
One last thing Kris taught me? Drink that glamorous green elixer out of wine glass. Because you’re a classy lady (or gent).
Prep time: 10 mins
What you need:
1 cucumber (peel it if it’s not organic, this adds some prep time)
handful of kale
handful of romaine
1 – 2 broccoli stems
2 – 4 celery stems
1 apple or pear
1 tsp ginger root (approx)
What you do:
- Wash and prep all fruits and veggies! Trim em up and wash em good. Feel free to substitute, add more, skip some ingredients but keep the cucumber, kale, and a fruit as a base. A 1:3 fruit:veggies ratio is a good one to keep in mind.
- Viola. Delectable green goodness. Drink up!
