Yay, green juice! Said no one ever. What if we call it gorgeous green juice? That makes it a lot better, trust me. So what makes this green juice "gorgeous?" The vitamins that are in it have benefits for your hair, skin, nails and body! I also felt energetic after drinking it, which made a complete difference in my workout. Try it with this simple recipe below.
What you need
2 handfuls of spinach
2 stalks of celery
1 Granny Smith apple
What to do
Juice the veggies first, then the apple. Apples add natural sugar but if you do one-half of the apple at a time, you might realize you don't even need the entire thing! I used a low-speed juicer, similar to the Omega J8006 Nutrition Center, to preserve as many nutrients as possible. Want to learn more about this juicer? Read here.
