green juice recipe-1Comments : 1 Posted in : Juicing on by : apsara Tags: Beet, dandelion, ginger, juice recipe, Juicer, Juicing, Romaine lettuce
Not so long ago, I purchased an Omega juicer to make green juice. In the next few posts I will talk about my juicing journey, why I started and how I chose my juicer.
When I shop for greens for juicing, I pick up what I can find easily in the organic aisle, whatever is in season. Usually it is celery, lettuce, chard (Rainbow, Swiss), parsley, cilantro, carrot. I also get others that are not organically grown- cucumber, ginger, lime etc. And what would fit in my budget and my fridge for the week’s grocery! I do not deny that getting these is expensive, but it is made up somewhat by not buying many other processed foods.
Here’s a green juice recipe:
celery stalks- 4-5
Romaine lettuce- 1 bunch
big carrot- 1
dandelion – a few leaves
beet greens- 2-3
cucumber- 1/2 peeled
ginger root– small bit
large lime- 1
Wash all the above and run through the juicer, except for the lime. Squeeze the lime, and you have a delicious drink.
Here’s the fiber that I use in other recipes or just compost.
