Happy Easter folks!
In my home, we have been up since the crack of dawn with a very excited preschooler hunting for treasures left by the Easter Bunny.
I know we will all be indulging in some goodies, so what better day than today to start it off with my Mighty Green Juice.
Super easy to do and the health benefits are soaring! I love to add lemons to my fresh juices, as they are amazing at eliminating the bitter taste of the dark leafy green vegetables that provide most of the benefits of juicing. One benefit of juicing compared to eating the vegetable or fruit whole is that your body can absorb the nutrients better by letting the juicer do some of the hard digesting work that would be necessary in eating whole food. Not to mention, the cancer-fighting and antioxidant benefits.
Mighty Green Juice Recipe
- 1 bunch of kale
- 1 lemon
- 2 apples, sliced in half (I used Gala, you can use whatever you like, Granny Smith would work perfectly!)
- Wash all fruit and vegetables thoroughly, as you will be juicing them skin and all.
- Place all ingredients one by one into your juicer. I use a Big Mouth Hamilton Beach Juicer, you might have something better!
- Let all the goodness pour into your glass, and enjoy!
