I fell off the juicing wagon for awhile. I think this was the first time in over four years that my juicer sat in a corner of the kitchen, unused for over six weeks. And for some reason, I felt compelled to pry myself out of bed at 6 am on a Sunday and rush to the market to find some veggies for juicing. Now that’s dedication.
This morning I was thinking about the struggles I hear from folks around juicing. Most of the time, challenges are associated with time and money so today I wanted to create a simple and easy green juice with only 3 ingredients (but packed full of nutrients!) and was affordable.
Here’s how this juice breaks down in terms of cost:
- 1 small bunch (about 8 stalks) organic celery: $2.68
- 2 large organic kale leaves: $.99 ($2.98 for the bunch)
- 1 organic lemon: $.99
So now that we’ve solved those dilemas, let’s drink some juice!
This juice is a great alkalizing green juice intended to restore pH balance to the body. I don’t typically add fruit to my juices, but if a sweeter juice is desired, add a green apple for a tart low-sugar option or a fruit of your choice.
- 1 small bunch of (organic) celery (about 8 stalks)
- 2 large (organic) kale leaves
- 1 lemon, peeled
- Juice ingredients and enjoy immediately.
