Green Goddess juices

greenjuice

Purists insist that you should go green with juices, to minimise the blood sugar spikes that fruit and sweet veg such as carrots and beets give you. A happy medium would be to make the majority of the juice ingredients from the following cruciform : kale, Swiss chard, pak choi and lettuce – organic romaine lettuce is one of the best juicing green vegetables – then include something to lift the taste a bit – carrot, apple or kiwi. A squeeze of lemon helps liven up any green drink, and the addition of herbs such as mint and basil mask unpleasant tastes such as spirulina or, in my case, celery!
