Have you seen the documentary, “Sick, Fat, and Nearly Dead?” If not, go watch it, and if you have, than you know that nothing starts a healthy morning out better than juicing some fresh veggies and fruits.(Especially from chocolate Easter overload!)
My hubby, son and I love to juice! We found this 30 lbs. bag of carrots at Whole Foods yesterday and my son immediately says, “look mommy, carrots to juice!” Not only is fresh juice just about the most healthy thing around, it is also quite delicious and makes it easy getting more veggies into your diet!
I found this great recipe from Epic Creations. It is tasty and tangy and has a pick-me-up kinda feel to it. I added some kale and parsley too… just because I had some in the fridge. Here’s the recipe from Epic Creations:
1 Medium cucumber
1 handful of fresh cilantro
1 inch piece of ginger
1 carrot, no top
Put it all through the juicer… and drink to your health!
Do you drink green juice? What’s your favorite juicing combinations?
And just in case you didn’t read this post on ginger…. 1 tsp of ginger has similar antioxidant levels as one cup of spinach! Bring on the ginger!
