It’s grey here today, the sun hasn’t peeked out yet. Add to that the usual challenge of getting moving on Monday and I needed a boost to get going.
Sparky Juice to the rescue!
This is a more savory juice than most that I drink but I have to say I love the spice. When I started drinking green juice, I tried to hide the green, bitter flavors with sweet, fruit juices. This juice has helped me add a different flavor profile to my juice repertoire. It’s also loaded with folic acid and magnesium, plus lots of phytonutrients, all things that give me a BIG boost in energy and mood. Take that, grey Monday!
New to juicing? There are a few resources here, including another juice recipe, in a post I wrote about juicing last year. Green juice has been a vital addition to my diet and has helped me over several health hurdles. And now I actually crave it! How about you? Do you juice? Scared to try it? Curious? I’d love to hear your thoughts on green juice!
