The Green Cowgirl (Cancer-kickin’ Green Juice recipe)

Purchase organic veggies when possible and wash thoroughly before use.28558859_l

Ingredients:

  •  2 cucumbers (peel first if not organic)
  •  3-4 stalks of celery
  •  4-5 stalks of kale
  •  4-5 leaves of romaine lettuce
  •  small handful of cilantro
  •  small handful of parsley
  •  1 lemon or lime (remove rind but leave as much of the white pith as possible. Did you know the pith contains bioflavonoids, which also have cancer-fighting properties? Yeehaw!)
  •  1” (or smaller) piece of ginger root

What to do:

Run all of the above through your favorite juicer (I love my Breville® Icon) in no particular order. If you are new to green juicing you may want to add a low glycemic fruit such as a pear or apple to make the taste more palatable at first. It’s best to drink fresh juice as soon as possible otherwise vital enzymes and nutrients oxidize. If you’re saving some for later, be sure to store in airtight container (such as a mason jar) in refrigerator.Drink within 24 hours.

Yields: 2-3 servings.
