Have you watched Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead? Well, it was really eye opening. John has been an on and off consumer of juice but I never really got into it. I always thought I would just eat the thing I was to be juicing. After watching the documentary I thought I would give it a try.
From there, I just started throwing up some Instastories about the journey and I have gotten a lot of different questions about what we were drinking. I really like the “Mean Green Juice” that is featured in the documentary, so I wanted to share it with you all!
It is very very simple. You will need a juicer, the one we use is the Huron Slow Juicer. John got it a handful of years ago, but it is still working like a champ. I personally don’t like pulp so I strain my juice using a funnel and mesh strainer. This is just a personal preference 🙂
- 2 Green Apples
- About 4 Celery Sticks
- 8 leaves of Kale
- 1 Cucumber
- 1 Lemon
- About an inch of Fresh Ginger
Turn on your juicer, and start shoveling stuff in. EASY my Friends! So easy!
As mentioned before I personally don’t like pulp so I do strain it. I put my cup in the sink, just in case of a mess, the funnel, and then the strainer. Pour the juice over the strainer, once finished, add ice and enjoy.
In “Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead” the star of the documentary drank only this juice for 90 days. He checked with his Dr. and was able to get all the nutrients he needed in this juice. Now I am not doing that, but this is an incredible breakfast swap, or snack supplement in out house.
Give it a try and let me know what you think!
