Our Favorite Green Juice Recipe

Our Favorite Green Juice Recipe

We all know that how we choose to start the day has an effect our energy and mood all day long... Somedays start with a pot of coffee, others with warm lemon water or a super mushroom hot cocoa but today I'm starting the day with my favorite nutrient-dense green juice. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My husband and I like to make fresh juice about 1 or 2 x's a week and today I'm sharing our go-to recipe.

It tastes bright & vibrant, it's low in sugar and this recipe makes enough for 2 people. And if you share, don't forget to clink your glasses together and cheers to your health.

1/2 - 1 bunch of kale⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

2 green apples⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4 stalks of celery⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
a 1 inch piece of ginger

If you haven't gotten on the juicing train it's certainly worth a try! You don't have to start out buying an expensive juicer either, just visit your nearest local juice bar and start by testing out different blends they offer.

My suggestion: I try to stay away from the juices that are high in sugar or full of fruit juices. I don't tend to have difficulty eating my daily allowance of fresh fruits and I find them better when eaten with all their natural fiber. I always try juices that are mostly veggies and will opt for their freshest batch made when I'm trying to decide.

The two most noticeable benefits are that I find juices to be filling, easily taking the place of a light meal and helps the body with elimination, yes pooping. If you have a sluggish digestive system and don't naturally poop everyday a fresh pressed juice might just get you in a pattern of more regular eliminations.
