I make this up in the morning, it makes enough for 2 servings, so I’ll have one for breakfast and put the other in the ‘fridge for dinner.

Feel free to mix & match and substitute, whatever is handy, whatever is seasonal from the garden, whatever is on sale.

The main thing to remember is to have way more veggies than fruits – fruits are good for you but they are high in fructose and calories.

Have fun with your veggies - go ahead, play with your food!

  • Grab a fistful of kale by the stalks, about 10 or 12.
  • Grab a small bunch parsley (about 1/3 of a standard grocery store bunch)
  • 1 med cucumber
  • 3 stalks celery
  • 3 carrots
  • 1 big green apple ( or 2 small ones)
  • 1 small or ½ large lemon, most of outer rind peeled leaving the white pith
  • Small piece ginger, about the size of your first thumb knuckle

Make sure everything is washed well – as some of this comes from my garden I’m hyper-vigilant to ensure no critters are lurking (eww!)

I use a big pyrex 8-cup measuring cup to juice into because it fits perfectly under my juicer spout and I often make more juice than will fit in my 16oz glass.

I make this up in the morning, it makes enough for 2 servings, so I’ll have one for breakfast and put the other in the ‘fridge for dinner.

I keep the glass in the freezer because I like my juice cold.

Change it up!

Instead of kale try some of these green variations:

Greens, greens good for your heart!

  • ¼ to ½ head red cabbage (depending on size)
  • chard (colors!)
  • beet greens
  • turnip greens
  • mustard greens
  • rabe
  • 6-cups spinach
  • ½ head romaine lettuce
  • 3 cups green beans
  • 2 stalks with florets broccoli

Instead of apples try some of these hard fruit variations

  • Pears
  • Beets (root)
  • Pineapple rind
  • Melon rind (cantaloupe, watermelon, whatever)
