Citrus Green Juice

Citrus Green Juice

This juice is simple and delicious. The joys of juicing mean you can throw just about anything in, and if you end with an apple, your juice will taste delicious. This juice has lime as well to give it a little zing. I definitely needed this juice after the previous evening’s treat meal ended in me having a saketini and a very large portion of greasy noodles. My mother poked fun at me in my grey sweatpants and my food baby… I definitely did too. 20 oz of detox heaven, coming right up!

Ingredients:

  • 4-5 stocks kale (I mixed red and green kale)
  • 2 large carrots
  • 1/2 large cucumber
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 lime
  • 4 ice cubes (I enjoy cold juice much more)

For this recipe, I’m not including nutritional information, simply for the fact that counting calories on a juiced meal is ridiculous. The point of juicing is to get down to the purest nutrition within the veggies without the fiber and volume that would cause your body to spend a lot of time and energy digesting each bite. The less your body focuses on digestion, the more time and energy it can spend healing your internal organs and getting rid of toxins in the body. Juicing is NOT meant to be healthy meal replacement all day every day. After I juice, I feel rejuvinated and clean, so I like to think of juicing as more of a jump start. Enjoy!
