My Morning Green Juice

This is a mild green juice that I’ve been drinking for the past couple of mornings. If you don’t mind the celery taste, add an extra stalk in, but I cut back because when I use two stalks, the flavor of raw celery is relatively strong.  Also, I water mine down with about a cup or so of cold water.

You can juice the fruit/veggies in any order you like really, but just make sure to use the lemon juice just before the spinach to help reduce oxidation (do this for any iron-rich veggies/fruits).  I pour my juice straight into an aluminum water bottle with a few ice cubes.  You want to store in an air-tight, light-tight container to avoid oxidation as well. 

1 apple
1 stalk celery (with leaves)
1/2 of a large cucumber
1-2 big handfuls of spinach
3 medium-sized carrots
juice of 1/2 lemon

No pics for this one because it’s a pretty nasty green color.  That’s another reason why it’s good to keep it in an aluminum bottle – so you don’t have to look at it while you drink it!
