Going Green

It's a brand new morning! There's nothing better than waking up early, spending time in quiet reflection and prayer, getting a good run in and rebooting my metabolism with an awesome green juice. 

I'd like to share my favorite green juice recipe with you. We invested in a Breville Juice Fountain a year ago, after watching a documentary on the benefits of juicing. I try to juice at least a few times a week, not as a weight loss method, but to add a nutrient boost to my diet. 

I call this Pineapple Limeade. 

2 leaves curly kale, washed
Handful of mint, washed
2 small green apples
1 medium lemon, washed and half of peel removed
1 medium lime, washed and half of peel removed
Quarter sized 1/4-in. thick slice of ginger, peeled 
1/3 of a pineapple, peeled (of course!)

Feed through your juicer and enjoy the tangy sweet zinger! 

Makes 24 oz.
