A big glass of Green juice is what we use to keep colds away especially over the winter months. My husband teaches everyday which places him in close contact with all manner of new germs or sickness. Since we have been drinking green juice regularly during the past couple of years, gone are the days of constant sickness! Whenever we feel a bug or germ is trying to get at us we make sure to prepare a big green juice! If we are on the road we get a 'green monster' at the local co-op or juice bar! So keep yourself and loved ones healthy by remembering to juice those fresh organic greens! Here is the recipe for Ben's usual organic green juice which you can of course adjust to what greens you have in your house. I am so grateful that he happily takes a big part in keeping us healthy by chopping the organic veggies and making this juice while I prepare and chop the dinner. Thanks honey! You are the best!!!
Ben's Green Juice Blast
1/2 - 1 Fennel bulb
Large handful of fresh baby spinach
Handful of fresh pea sprouts
1-3 Leaves of Swiss Chard
3 Stalks of celery
1 English Cucumber
1-2 Green apples
Inch of peeled ginger
Optional 1-2 Carrot sticks (which will make the color a bit muddy)
All of the above ingredients are organic except our cucumber which was peeled to remove the toxins. After preparing your vegetables, fruits, and greens, by washing, peeling, or chopping, just place in your juicer. See my juicing guide here if you are unfamiliar with the routine. I love the fennel as that always adds a boost of flavor to the drink! Delicious! Be happy. Be healthy. Be peace.
