Short & Sweet Sunday - Green Juice

Green juice is very good for you. Although juice doesn't give you all the fiber and in the whole food, when you juice vegetables you can get all the nutrients of a lot of vegetables that would probably be too much to eat in one day let alone one serving. 

All this makes about 2 cups of juice.  2 celery stalks, 2 carrots with greens, 1 beet with greens, a small bunch of kale and an apple, 1/4 lemon and an inch of ginger. 

The juice can taste a little funky but if you add aromatics like lemon and ginger, plus the apple for sweetness it makes it taste more palatable.  

I bought this juicer based on a review online, praising it as a good quality, inexpensive juicer. The juice is tasty.

Because of the beet, this isn't exactly green juice but it is filled with the goodness and nutrients of green vegetables I wouldn't have time or space to eat otherwise.
