A Green Juice A Day Can Aid In Keeping The Doctor Away

A Green Juice A Day Can Aid In Keeping The Doctor Away

Can a green juice a day keep…away?

Is it another craze or another Clean Cut tool?

After research and having some of our members test it out it seems when adding in the right kind of green juice daily you are increasing your daily potassium up to 36% and your vitamin A up to 20% which aids in weight loss, increases energy, creates better blood flow, helps the body use insulin correctly, helps boost the immune system and supports eye and brain function.

So what is the right kind of green juice?

NATURAL, NO ADDED   SUGAR or SODIUM

You may see the cold pressed version in any health store or even at Trader Joe’s.  When you see the settlement at the bottom of the bottle you have the real stuff. Always read the ingredients.  It should look something like, Cucumber, Kale, Celery, green apple (it’s Ok!), lemon and maybe ginger and other spices like turmeric.

When making it yourself or at the counter of a health store you have full control over what goes in it.  The greener the better, maybe ½ the green apple (just to save some of the sugar grams for later) you can also add in ¼ of an avocado to thicken it up and add some of the GOOD FAT (making this juice even more powerful)

It’s almost impossible to eat the amount of daily greens needed each day.  This power packed juice helps get you there, flooding you body with amazing vitamins and mineral.

 

This green juice below is a great starter juice.  Get creative and add this Clean Cut Tool to your daily regime.  You can use an emulsion blender like a Vitamix or Ninja to emulsify the ingredients.  Then add water to your desired consistency.

  • A HUGE handful of kale or spinach
  • Romaine (when cleared by the government for sure)
  • 3-4 celery sticks
  • Juice of one lemon
  • Thumb full of fresh ginger
  • ¼ of an avocado
  • Parsley (optional)
  • ½ green apple (optional)
Use it to start you day or as a filler throughout,  However you get it in, IT WORKS!

1 C chopped onion
1C chopped green pepper
2-3 cups fresh spinach (remember it cooks down)
1-2 TBSP fresh chopped garlic to taste
1 small can chopped green chilis
1 Can low sodium diced tomatoes
1 Can beans of your choice (I used black beans)

Salt
Pepper
Cumin
Chili Powder
Pumpkin Pie Spice Optional
Cayenne Pepper Optional

Saute onion and pepper in a pan
Add in spinach and garlic and let spinach wilt down
During this brown your ground turkey breast
Add tomatoes, beans, chilis and pumpkin
Let simmer

Add spices to taste. This is where it is all relative to your taste. We prefer a stronger pumpkin flavor, so we added pumpkin pie spice. Add to your taste. Same with all the spices. Remember Cumin is a strong taste so start with a teaspoon and go from there. Cayenne is also spicy so add to taste.

Simmer and add ground turkey. Simmer for another 10 minutes or so and enjoy!!!!
