Post-Holiday Green Juice Detox


Green-JuiceMost of us enjoy plenty of the rich foods served during the holiday season and consequently begin our new year feeling like we need to detox. This year I did something different–I juiced some greens everyday and feel like I not only offset the more indulgent foods, but I ate better throughout the holidays. As we make our resolutions for living healthier in 2014, this is also an opportune time to start increasing your veggie consumption to support your immune system during flu and allergy season.

Use fresh and ideally organic produce. Makes 24 ounces or 2 portions.

Green Juice Recipe:
6 handfuls or about 1/3 of a 16 oz, pre-washed power greens mix including spinach and kale (e.g. Organic Girl)
2 whole cucumbers with peel
1 inch ginger with peel
4 sticks celery

*If you need a bit of sweetener, add one carrot.
*Add 1-2 cloves of garlic as immune support.

Happy New Year!  Wishing you health and joy in 2014!
