My Favorite Green Juice

There is nothing like taking a big sip of beautiful green juice. Right? This may not look like the most appealing drink, but oh does it taste good. The minute it touches my mouth, I can just feel its goodness. My body immediately says “thank you”. Juicing is something I try to implement into my daily routine, but I will be honest and say that it usually only ends up being 2 or 3 times a week if I am lucky. This is one of my favorite green juices that I make frequently.

So why juice? Why not just eat your veggies steamed or raw?  Freshly juiced fruits and vegetables are loaded with an abundance of vitamins, minerals, and most importantly enzymes. When you juice, it gives your digestive system a little rest. It also makes it easier to get some nutrition from vegetables that you most likely would not eat, like beets or kale.

Just like with anything, I would advise being moderate and balanced. I would not suggest only consuming your vegetables juiced unless you have a certain medical condition that would require that, but eat whole foods and in a variety of ways. We do need the fiber and other properties that are taken out when juicing. That is why I make green juice on some days and make a green smoothie on other days. Sometimes I combine the two, and I will show how I do that later in this post.

This particular juice I call the Lemon Ginger Zinger.

It is quite refreshing and has a little bite to it with lemon and ginger. Yummy, yum!

If you have a juicer that doesn’t handle the greens too well, (like it just shreds the greens) or you want the fiber, you can place the juice in a blender then add the greens and give it a whirl.

The juicer I use and have used for years is the Jack LaLanne JLPJB Power Juicer. It does a good job and is not too pricey. There are a lot of juicer options out there. I recommend just getting one that has good ratings and is not too pricey to start with. 

It’s pretty easy and quick to clean. Some machines are sooooo hard to clean, and that is an issue as I don’t want to spend valuable time cleaning a machine.
