Gimme a Beet
04 09 2013 • Mama Mio
Ever since getting a juicer, I’ve noticed a few things. I feel more alive. I have more energy. My skin is brighter. I don’t get colds. In short, I LOVE JUICING. For me, juice isn’t a replacement for meals, but rather an addition to them. I go heavy on veggies and lighter on fruits to make sure I’m not overloading on sugar. On a recent break, I was absolutely jonesing for an organic juice bar – now more important to me than a good espresso. And that is high praise.
Here’s my favorite juice recipe. Feel free to tweak to your own tastes. The best green juice is the one you’re actually going to like and drink, so don’t stress if you’re not a fan of liquid broccoli (I’m not!).
Gimme a Beet:
Kale any kind
Parsley flat or curly
Carrots use at least 3 big ones – I like 5 in mine
Ginger a lot or a little – depends how spicy you like it
Lemon or lime
Apples whatever kind you like. Please buy organic.
Beets golden or purple – 1 medium sized is plenty – I cut big ones in half and use the next day
Things I’ve added and loved:
Pineapple substitute for apple
Kiwi substitute for apple
Oranges substitute for apple
