Green Juice

The inspiration for this green juice comes from Joe Cross from the movie Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead. He is a 43 year old,  Australian businessman that was told by his doctors that he would die if he did not turn his life around. Click here to read an article about his juice journey to wellness.

Do not let the color fool you, with the addition of apple and lemon, these juices have a very mildly sweet and tart flavor. Personally, I find the color and chemicals in certain green soft drinks much more offensive. What you have here in this very unassuming glass is a juice teaming with vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids, protein (yes vegetables have protein) and carbohydrates. 

The basic recipe from Joe Cross contains kale, cucumber, celery, green apples, parsley, lemon, and ginger. Watch Joe make his Green juice in this advertisement.

There is no exact recipe in my book. If you hate celery, leave it out. Add carrots or don't.
