I admit I've always had trouble getting enough vegetables on a daily basis. After watching Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead I decided to act on the suggestion of juicing in order to increase veggie intake. I've had a Green Star masticating juicer for several years, although it hasn't gotten that much use. This week though I pulled it out and have made a green drink for one meal each day.
First I make sure to have my fridge stocked with a variety of vegetables! Then I pull out a big heap and prep them for the juicer. I peel ginger, cucumber and any of the dirty dozen. I buy organics when I can. I believe in using lots of different colors and flavors!
Here are the ones I used for this morning's juice.
Carrots, scallion, radish, celery, bok choy, spinach....and...
kale, cilantro, tomato, apple, cucumber, lime and sweet peppers!
It made enough for two servings, so I vacuum sealed a pint jar and put the rest in a glass.
I added a T. of ground flaxseed to the glass and Na Zdorovie! To good health!
