If you’re trying to get in shape, consider replacing a meal with a smoothie (packed with plant-based protein of course!) and start your day off with a tall green juice. I like to drink my juice chilled and over ice, but drink them as they suit you. Considering cutting your green juice with water if the flavor is too bitter, or grassy for your liking. Finally, here is a sample recipe that comes from Carly Brien of the famed Los Angeles based Press Juicery. Try it for some fresh squeezed green juice inspiration.
- 1 head romaine
- 2 pieces of celery
- 5 stalks kale (or other leafy greens)
- 1 to 2 Fuji apples
- 1 lemon
- 1 Tbsp ginger
- ½ bunch of watercress
- 1 dash of cayenne pepper
- Roughly chop fruit and vegetables, making sure to remove lemon peel. Place ingredients in juicer, alternating between different types so that they blend together well. Add cayenne and stir.
