#VerityLife – The Best Green Detox Juice
Made the resolution to eat healthier this year? We’ve got you covered. This nutrient packed juice is the perfect way to jump start your health kick this January.
2 cups packed baby spinach leaves
Handful parsley leaves and stems
1 medium green apple, core removed
1 large seedless cucumber
1-inch length piece fresh ginger, scrubbed clean
1 medium lemon
PREPARE THE VEGETABLES
Chop the apple, cucumber and ginger into thin pieces small enough to easily go through the juicer.
Cut away the yellow peel from the lemon, leaving most of the white pith and lemon flesh. Cut into slices and remove any seeds.
Reserve about half of the lemon. Turn the juicer on and push everything through, alternating between the greens and the firmer cucumber, apple and lemon. When everything but the reserved lemon has been juiced, stir the juice and taste for tartness. Add the remaining lemon if you feel it can take it. Or if the juice is too tart, consider adding a couple scrubbed unpeeled carrots or another cored apple.
