Need a little detoxing after the 4th?, which is not only filled with good times with family & friends, but typically some over indulgence and stress on the belly! My weakness is chips & hummus, and more chips! And maybe couple vodka sodas too but who’s counting…🍸
A simple way to get back on track is to give your digestive system a rest and eat clean and healthy non-processed foods, lots of water (with lemon) and get your body moving! Some power yoga this morning followed up with this green juice already had me on my no-chip & vodka detox path and feeling better already!!
July 5th detox green juice
What you’ll need:
4 organic cucumbers
8-10 romaine lettuce leaves
Large bunch of organic kale leaves (2-3 cups)
1/2 bunch each of parsley & basil
1 lemon & 1 lime, peeled
1 cup micro greens (use your favorite)
Wash all your veggies and pat dry. Cut the ends of the cucumbers and stems off the lettuce, kale, parsley & basil.
Place all veggies in juicer following your juicers instructions. Once you’ve juiced all veggies, give it a good stir and sample your green goddess!! Make any modifications you like; if you like it more tart add another lemon and/or lime. Add some spinach, celery or mint or other greens to play with the flavor. This no-fruit juice is low in sugar and will give you a good dose of healthy greens!
Juicing should be fun and artistic, not stressful! Use fresh organic and local produce when you can. Nothing like fresh kale from your own yard!
