healthy green juice

I make my green juice almost every day of the week. You can keep it super varied, and drinking some veggies adds a couple of extra healthy servings to your diet, which is key even if you are eating salads and vegetable side-dishes throughout the day.

You also can’t beat a good fruit smoothie. They’re a great way to get some extra good in you, and kids. Check out Jamie making smoothies with his son Buddy at home.

I make juice from all kinds of green vegetables, but I am drawn to the apparent healing properties of this combination of cucumbers and cilantro (coriander) in particular, and feel incredibly energized when I drink this juice. I often find myself guzzling it down just before dinner in a wine glass. There’s nothing like a green juice cocktail to stave off the witching hour!

When juicing I always use organic vegetables so I don’t increase my intake of pesticides in such a concentrated manner.
