Juice the Greens

KaleOur winter CSA bags are absolutely chocked full of beautiful greens!  Our lucky members get kale, chard, collards, parsley, cilantro, dill, mizuna, sorrel, lettuce, and spinach.  It isn’t uncommon to suddenly have your fridge packed with green nutrition, and the next thing you know, another delivery of greens is right around the corner!  One solution is to juice these greens.  Log into your Amazon Prime account and order a juicer, and then try one of these variations on a healthy green juice.

 

Ingredients:

  1. Greens such as kale, chard, spinach, collards, or even lettuce (flavor is more mild). We would not recommend arugula or mustards unless you want that spicy “kick” they can bring
  2. Lemons
  3. Cucumbers
  4. Celery
  5. Any herbs you like such as parsley, dill, or cilantro
  6. Ginger
  7. Apple

Instructions:

This is all based on your personal taste, so there are no hard and firm directions.  Basically, cram an entire bag of kale down your juicer.  Then add a few stalks of celery and a bunch of herbs, a cucumber and a chunk of ginger.  Add a lemon.  Top it off with half an apple (more if you need it sweeter).  You will end up with this brilliant green juice.  Don’t let it scare you!  Drink it down.  You will find that it actually tastes pretty good and the health benefits are multiple. Greens are full of vitamin A and lutein to keep your eyes healthy.  They also are loaded with calcium and vitamin C.  Best of all, they are full of chlorophyll and antioxidants, which is like drinking fresh sunshine and life!  

Don’t let those beautiful greens go to waste.  A good green juice is so yummy, that even the kids will love it.

Eat (or drink) your veggies,

Robin

    Funny but I went to Walmart and got the cheap Jack LaLannes juicer and have used it for about 3 years with no problems. Lots of hard core juicers would say that you need a cold press juicer instead of a masticating juicer like mine. For me, I’m sticking with the one I have until it dies and it is still going strong! Just juice. Any way you can get that done works!
