Julia’s Green Juice

{What comes out…}

I got a fancy, shiny, new Omega juicer for Christmas and I couldn’t be more excited about it. I’ve been waking up early before work in the mornings so that I can experiment with different kinds of juice. P.O. (pre-Omega), I used to head over to The Juice Press every morning and pay $9/day for my breakfast green juice.

Now things are different and my life is changed (and my bank account is not depleting quite so quickly). I buy a bunch of greens, apples, lemon, fresh ginger, and other vegetables on Sundays and use them all week to make juice. Total cost = about $3/juice. Score!

What do I put in my green juice? A mixture of the following fruits and vegetables. The amounts change daily and I suggest that you play around with these to find the perfect balance for you.

      i dont know if it’s necessary but it makes juicing much easier! i have friends with other juicers and they complain about how long it takes to clean. i would definitely do your research. good luck!

  2. I just got a juicer for Christmas too and I am absolutely in love with it! Juicing can be SO expensive when you buy it at a store/cafe/ spa etc. I find it much more feasible and fun to make my own!

    I love the carrot-kale-cucumber-apple combo, and I really want to start experimenting with beets. So many great combos to try!
