Five Tips for Juicing Greens
Are you brand new to juicing or interested in getting started? 
These 5 tips then should serve you well!
I absolutely love juicing, but learned a lot from trial and error.
I don’t find it to be annoying or time consuming. 
I actually find it to be fun and therapeutic.
I make time to juice, just like I would anything else in my schedule.
Knowing that I’m creating something healthy and nourishing for my body makes me feel awesome!! 

So let’s begin Recovery Warriors!! 

Tip #1
Start with a base…
Before you add any leafy or hearty greens like kale, be sure to add a base first. A base would include veggies like romaine lettuce, cucumber or even celery. Think high water content veggies. Adding these water content vegetables will also make your juice taste better. 

Tip #2
Add leafy greens…
Next you would add some leafy greens. Leafy greens can be kale, collard greens, mustard greens, spinach, swiss chard, or turnip greens.

Tip #3
Add some herbs…
I’m an herb junkie. I love everything about fresh herbs. I love them in my juice, to cook with them, and to garnish my meals. Add a handful of cilantro, parsley, even basil. Parsley is a wonderful herb to help you detox. 

Tip #4
Add a little kick…
Ginger is the bomb!! Not only is it great for inflammation, but it gives your juice that nice little zing.

Tip #5
Add some citrus…
Lemon helps boost the immune system. It also is rich in vitamin C, helps remove toxins from the body, and keeps your PH in an alkaline state.

Bonus Juice Tip for ya….
I like my juice to have a little sweetness. This is where fruit comes in. Feel free to add an apple, a pear, or any fruit that you love.

Have fun with this. Explore different combos and get creative. We have some many delicious fruits and veggies to choose from.

A Side Note….
If juicing seems overwhelming then try making smoothies also.
You can still incorporate beautiful fruits and vegetables and keep these super healthy.
You can even explore adding protein powders if you want to make a meal out of it.
Honestly, I love the benefits of both!
