I call this the ‘whatever is in your fridge’ aka ‘Everything Juice’. Whether your goal is to get a high dose of mixed nutrients in or saving your fruits and veggies from ending up in the trash, this juice is an awesome, healthy and smart solution.
Basically you can use anything available in season or in your pantry, but make sure the main ingredient is something you truly enjoy, for most people that can be apples, oranges or carrots (for they have a slightly sweet taste and are high water content, ideal for juicing).
If there are any fruits and veggies you don’t like, feel free to leave them out or replace them with something else. I want your juice to be enjoyable, not something you feel forced to drink for health reasons.
Makes about 5-6 servings
1 sweet bell pepper
1 lemon or lime
1 thumb size ginger
I prefer to juice in bigger batches, because cleaning the juicer can be a pain in the neck. I divide the juice in portions and store them in the freezer. This way the nutrients are not lost and I can get my morning fix without the drama of peeling, cutting, juicing and cleaning. All you have to do is remembering to get one out of the freezer before going to bed.
To supercharge this juice, add a teaspoon wheatgrass powder to your serving. If you don’t have any wheatgrass powder and aren’t planning to buy any, adding some dark leafy greens to the recipe is also an option. Anyway, I promise you that your energy levels will thank you after kicking off your day with this a juice like this!
