EAT YOUR GREENS...
I personally like my green juice so green that I don't want to eat greens for another week (though I still do 😋 ) I prefer to drink it in the morning to start my day but to be honest, I'll drink this any time - any day..
My go to recipe has changed since I'm nursing but I'll still post my go to recipe for you non nursing ladies 😘 I can no longer consume parsley as it stops the milk production (at least if you consume as much as I did)
I also don't usually add any fruit other than lemons but if you're new to this juicing thing, I'd recommend adding an apple or pear.
- 2 leafs of kale
- 2 stalks of celery
- 2 lemons
- 1 bunch of parsley
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 1 inch ginger
- 2 cucumbers
*TIPS: I save the kale stems when I make kale salad and juice them later :)
Now that I'm not adding parsley, I simply just leave it out or add other fun things such as dandelion.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT JUICER
I found that when I had a crappy juicer I would juice less. It was a pain to clean, set up, take apart and everything in between but the better the juicer the more I juice. The same with my blender or any kitchen equipment for that matter. So choosing the right juicer from the beginning pays off..
I personally have the OMEGA 8008 and I LOOOVE IT... I've tried quite a few juicers in my lifetime and this is definitely the one I find to be the best slow juicer. Easy to clean and set up and gives the best result.
They've made upgraded versions at this point as I've had this one for a few years but to be honest, I tried a newer one and didn't notice much of a difference except in price. That said, if you don't juice much you could probably get away with buying a cheeper high speed juicer but be aware that you often have to use more produce to get the same amount of juice. Plus it seems to oxidize faster. So depending on how often you juice - once a day/week/month/ it may be worth the investment.
Have fun experimenting 🤗
