Detox + Green Lemonade

Posted Jan 02 2013 7:41pm

Today is back to work for me, which while unfortunately means less sleep, also means back to my healthy living routine. Less Christmas cookies, more salads.

As a part of my New Year’s Resolution to eat more vegetables and less meat, I also resolved to juice more. I have been collecting juice and smoothie recipes as well as creating my own. Today I made my own version of a green lemonade.

Green Lemonade
*1/2 Lemon
*1  Granny Smith Apple
*1 inch Ginger
*1 Handful Spinach
*1 Handful Mixed Greens

I will warn you, this juice does not appear to be very appealing but is in fact quite refreshing! I forgot to snap a pic- next time!
