Here's a delicious, healthy recipe for vegetables that is quick, easy, and involves no cooking or baking that will give you tons of energy and nutrition: green juice! All you need is a juicer (such as the Omega 8004 like I have), a bunch of your favorite green veggies, and about 10 minutes of time. It's a great idea to have it for breakfast because it's a natural energizer and mood booster, so it sets you up for a great, happy day. (Jump to the bottom of the post for the video recipe)

I got the idea for this recipe form Kris Carr's book Crazy Sexy Diet. I was on a candida cleanse and wasn't allowed to have any sweet vegetables or fruit, and couldn't imagine making a juice without beets, carrots, apples, or pears. But low and behold, I discovered that with the right amount of green vegetables and a little ginger and lemon I could make a pretty sweet drink! I've been making this juice almost every morning since April, so it's hard to start my day without it!

I find that the following is a perfect balance of sweet and savory and yields a nice big glass of juice to tide me over until lunch time (or a snack). It is packed with nutrients, mainly vitamins A, C, K with some folate, magnesium, potassium, calcium, and iron.

Ingredients (all organic):

  • celery - 2 stalks
  • broccoli - 1 stalk (no head)
  • kale - 2-3 leaves
  • romaine lettuce - 3 leaves
  • cucumber - 1/2 of one
  • fennel (optional) - 1/5 of a bulb (and stalk if it has one)
  • spinach - 1 handful
  • parsley - few strands
  • ginger - 1 inch
  • lemon - 1 slice
Juice and enjoy!
