more juice!

Pin It I've been juicing like a madwoman.  Throwing every bit of produce in sight in my juicer has been quite the adventure, but for the most part, I've had pure gold streaming out of its little spout.

I know it looks like it would taste like grass, but it's actually really sweet and apple-y.  Plus, the kale has so many nutrients and the celery is a natural kidney cleanser.

Recipe for Lean Green Juice
1 bunch kale
3 stalks celery
1/2 apple, quartered

Side note:  I watched "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead" last night on Netflix and it makes me want to juice more than ever.  If a 300lb truck driver can juice for 60 days, I think anyone can make minor adjustments that can seriously benefit their health.  If you can get your hands on this documentary, watch it!  It's eye-opening and really approachable.


  1. Hi Julia!

    I saw the documentary "fat sick and nearly dead" too, have so say that i'm pretty tempted to take on the juice challenge to drop some extra pounds, and especially get all the energy that juicing offers. I've never tried juicing before, although I am equipped with a Breville juicer. Any tips?

  2. Hey, Alexa! I'm so jealous that you have a breville. I use a cheap-o $30 juicer (which works great, but requires a little more work). My main tips would be to add apple or pear to any juice, it makes it a little sweeter and produces lots of juice! I also add about an inch sized piece of fresh ginger to every juice. It gives it a little kick and has tons of health benefits.

    Also, one of the best parts about juicing is it is a great way to get rid of produce that you haven't gotten around to eating. Didn't use those carrots? Juice em! That apple feelin a little soft? Juice it!

    Let me know how it goes!
