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