Stopped in at Walmart yesterday and found all of this for a buck a bag! 2 bags of baby kale, 1 bag of baby spinach and 2 bags of mixed greens. There was so much kale in one bag that I had to wash it in batches…LOL
I found this green juice recipe over on http://www.rawjuicecleanserecipes.com/green-juice-cleanse-recipes/ . This recipe is a simple, yet refreshing, green juice that’s just right to kick-start your morning.

For those of you new to juicing, already into juicing, looking for more information about juicing/cleansing/storing your juice etc without feeling overwhelmed, this site (rawjuicecleanserecipes.com) comes highly recommended from 2flirtygirlsandajuicer.
Chock full of antioxidants and has spinach and kale juice just for good measure:
Juiced some spinach and kale and added to that frozen berries…Strawberries, black currants, sweet cherries, blackberries, blueberries and red sour cherries. Tossed in 1/2 frozen banana and a half an avocado:
Almost thick enough to eat with a spoon:
This is what I made from some of the produce I bought:
Kale, spinach, carrot, green apple and ginger juice. I drank some of the juice and used the rest as broth for the soup I made.
I used about a cup and a bit of the pulp in my soup…why not?…I asked myself. I added some of the juice to the pot then added onions, garlic and a bit of the pulp to saute. I then added potatoes, carrots, smoked paprika, s&p, red chili flakes, thyme, oregano and sage. I added water to cover veggies then added a cup of pulp from veggies I juiced, pearl barley, 6 bean blend and 2 teaspoons of potato/carrot/ginger soup mix….brought to a gentle boil then simmered.
Mmmm, mmmm good! There is enough soup to last me a few days…that is if I can control myself and not eat it all in one go…hehehe.
2 bowls later…yes, I had 2 bowls…LOL. I’m saving some of the broth for another time to make some spicy rice noodles. The broth is tasty enough that you could have it on its own.
This is my brekkie today:
Mostly greens juice (black kale, chard, spinach, cucumber, golden beet, parsnip and a squeeze of lemon juice), a crispy, crunchy Fuji apple and 2 wee little juicy mandarins that had quite the kick to them – almost like sucking on a lemon – yep, I tried that before just because…don’t tell me I’m the only one who’s dunnit – you know what they say about curiosity. 🙂
