If you're not a salad fan, but know you need the nutrients they offer, here's the way to drink your nutrients and buffer them with a bit of awesome, hard-working protein. (recipe adapted from Vega)

Ingredients

  • 3 leaves kale
  • 1 bunch cilantro
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 green apple
  • 1-2 scoops of Klean Isolate 
Instructions:
  1. Wash all fruit and vegetables (unless they're organic, remove the skin before juicing)
  2. Juice away (add a dash of lemon juice to keep your green juice from going brown).

Why these green foods?

Kale:  It's a superfood. Kale is essential nutrients, and especially high in calcium, potassium, and iron. Cilantro: It makes everything more flavorful and is rich in vitamins, minerals, and chlorophyll. Spinach: This green has 2x as much iron as almost all other greens. . Cucumbers: Awesome for hydration. They are refreshing and cooling. Make sure you take off the skins if you're juicing conventional cucumbers. Carrots: Adds sweetness and has one of the highest sources of beta carotene. Green Apples: Adds great doctor-keeping-away nutrients and a touch of tartness. Using organic apples lets you keep the skin on, which has a ton of added nutrients.
