Green Goddess Juice

green juice

Sharon Ferguson says when she drinks this green concoction it feels like sunlight and pure energy are zapping straight into her cells. She and her daughter Maddy, TRU student, did a juicing extravaganza to start the New Year!

Juicers are expensive, but sometimes students have gone together to buy one and they also appear sometimes at Value Villages  or on Kijiji.

Green Goddess Juice (for 1 serving):

1 apple (granny smith)

½ cucumber

4 kale leaves

¼ lemon w half the peel

(can add ginger, celery, etc.)

 

I added approx. 4 stalks of celery and the juice comes out so dark green and fresh.  Also remember when juicing, to add some kale and then add some cucumber / celery (high water content) veggie or fruit, to help push it through the juicer.  Enjoy!

If you don’t have a juicer, smoothies are also great.  One student told me they throw some frozen blueberries, raspberries, a banana, a dollop of yoghurt and a glass of orange juice into the blender and that is their everyday breakfast on busy mornings!  Berries are considered super foods in terms of the amount of vitamins and anti-oxidants you get for the money you spend:

Thanks Sharon and Maddy!
