Juice Week: The Green Refresher Print Recipe Print Recipe

You know me, I like anything that’s green.  and in mason jars

Actually, now that I think about it, my wedding color,  green.

I then had to google the color green. This is what I found.

How the color green affects us physically:

  • Soothes
  • Relaxes mentally, as well as physically
  • Helps alleviate depression, nervousness, and anxiety
  • Offers a sense of renewal, self control, and harmony

 

I’d say this green juice does just that.

Today’s 3 Tips on Juicing:

  1. Mushy fruits don’t juice well, such as bananas, avocados and berries [raspberries, etc.]
  2. Wash and cut all your fruit and veggies up, place in ziplock bag, that way the next morning you’re all set to juice
  3. To keep your juice from discoloring, add a few teaspoons of lemon juice.

You can read more about the benefit of juicing and also the difference between juicing and blending, here.

ps. These are the jars I use!

Happy juicing!

    I love green juice but was warned it will spike blood sugars because you’re breaking down the fruits. What do you think?

    I discovered you blog a few weeks ago and I love it. I am currently reading a Crazy sexy diet by Kris Carr and was going to give juicing a try. Do you eat anything after a glass of the morning juice? What would you recommend? How many drinks of juice do you have when you’re juicing?

    I’ll do a full 12 oz juice and don’t usually eat anything right after, as it’s pretty filling. However, listen to your body and if it asks for food after your juice, then eat a little something – good news, there’s no rules :) Enjoy!

    I’d say it depends on the person & the juice. If someone is diabetic or recovering from an illness, they’re more likely to see a spike. Juices with carrots and beets are more likely to cause a spike. I’m personally not bothered by it, but would just recommend each person listens to their body and drink the juice that feels best for them. Hope this helps!
