Healthy Recipes: Revitalizing (salad) juice

This healthy recipe is called "salad juice" because you can drink it for breakfast or lunch instead of eating a salad!

I call this a salad juice because instead of making a salad for lunch, you can juice it! Just don’t do this all the time, as you would miss out on the beneficial fibre from the vegetables. However, this is a great recipe for days when you don’t really feel like eating, when you’re on the go or when you are cleansing.

Ingredients
2 large carrots
1 large handful of sunflower sprouts or another variety
1-2 beets (depending on their size)
½ cucumber
1 or 2 apples (Granny Smith work nice)
2 stalks of celery
1 inch piece of ginger
1/2 lemon
1 large handful or bunch of collard greens or kale

Directions
Place everything into your juicer according to the instructions. It is best to do this one vegetable at a time. Finish off with lemons because it cleans the juicer at the end!

Juicing tip: Run your pulp through the juicer again to get more yield and the most out of your veggies. You can also add fresh water after your last vegetable to clean it out and add a bit more liquid to your juice.
