Green Juice

This juice is a nutritional powerhouse, providing vitamins, calcium, and trace minerals. It is also low in calories and sugars, making it an ideal weight-loss drink. When I’m in need of a detox, I’ll make this juice in the morning and have one serving for breakfast, and 1 for lunch, followed by a light dinner.

Yield: 3 cups, 2 large servings

Ingredients

  • 1 head celery
  • 1/2 head kale
  • 1 cucumber, sliced lengthwise
  • 1 lemon, peeled

Equipment

  • cutting board
  • chef’s knife, 8-inch
  • juicer

Juice the celery, kale, cucumber, and lemon. Stored in glass jars, Green Juice will keep for 24 hours in the refrigerator.

Variations:

1. Add 1/4 bunch parsley, cilantro, or mint
2. Add 2 apples or 1 cup fresh pineapple
3. Add a 1-inch piece fresh ginger root
