Drink Your Veggies by Getting Green
When I want to feel my best, I reevaluate my diet. And I usually find that I eat more grain-based carbs than I should be (yes, us gluten-free girls can get trapped eating a ton of carbs too!).
So, I go for the greens. I reach for fresh produce. And I rev up my juicer.
Getting Green Juice
4 cups of organic kale
4 stalks of organic celery
2 organic Granny Smith apples
Cut your kale, celery, and apples into chunks that can fit through your machine. Halve the limes and squeeze out the juice any which way you want. I like that my equipment has an option for citrus. Juice the kale, celery, and apples, running a quarter cup of ice cold filtered water through the juicer after each ingredient. Add lime juice to suit your acidic preference.
Garnish with crunchy, fresh pea shoots.
