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.
Healthy green juice recipe
- 1 bunch cilantro (coriander to most people)
- 2 cucumbers
- 2 limes or lemons
- 1 piece ginger (about 1-inch, no need to peel)
Simply push cilantro, cucumbers, citrus, and ginger through a juicer and serve!
