July 5th detox green juice nirvana

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)

Juicer  

   
What you’ll need to do:

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!  

 Some twisting yoga poses will also help you detox the overindulgence left inside!

  
Drink up and Namaste…
