My Daily Green Juice Recipe

i walk around every day with my mason jar filled with green "stuff" as many call it. i'm always asked what it is. i love sharing because i want to inspire every one to drink green "stuff" every day- and make it nutritious and delicious!! basically it is just all the greens and sprouts that i have plus apple, lemon and ginger to make it taste amazing and fresh!!
here are approximate amounts:
3 stalks celery
1/2 cucumber
1-3 apples (optional and dependent on how sweet you like your juice)
loads of sprouts: sunflower, broccoli, alfalfa etc...
handful of each: cilantro, parsley and dandelion greens (all very cleansing)
handful of each: romaine, chard, kale, beet greens, napa cabbage, bok choy or any other organic greens that are fresh at the market that week.

Using Juicer: chop all ingredients into small pieces and juice- i like to add lemon juice and grated ginger fresh at the end.
Using Vitamix Blender: Add ¼ cup of water at bottom of blender. Add ingredients to blender one at a time in the order above and blend each. Use nutmilk bag to strain fiber from juice.
Add lemon juice and grated ginger.

i make approximately 60 ounces a day. i use some as a base for my kid's smoothies.
i often add green powders to the juice to make it amazingly nutritious- wheatgrass powder, pure synergy and spirulina are the regular green powders i use.

i crave my green juice every day. drinking green juice is one of the best things you can do for your health. Drink up!!

i'm off to my yoga workshop all day!!
namaste, kelly
